Marcia Udine Day passed away March 29, 2017, in her home in the company of those she loved. She was 88 years old. Marcia was a lifelong Republican, an astute bridge player and an avid gardener. She was born to Margot Crawford Udine, a librarian and Edgar J. Udine, and entomologist, in Great Falls, Montana. She graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Home Economics and worked for the State of Pennsylvania as a dietitian in rural areas. She married Robert J. Day in 1951 and was married for 47 years. Both in her youth and married life, Marcia moved often, never attending the same school for more than a couple years.  This circumstance, and growing up during the Depression, made her a resilient, clever, and creative woman. Marcia finally settled in Hinsdale, Illinois, where she lived since 1974.  She was particularly proud of spearheading the action to save Katherine Legge Park from development shortly after moving to town. It is thanks to her local activism that the park continues to be held in perpetuity for the people of Hinsdale. She was preceded in death by her husband, and her brother, Keith C. Udine. She is survived by her three children, Margot (Mike) Henshaw, Douglas (Jennifer) Day, and Darcy (Thomas) Zoells; her nine grandchildren, Kirsten, Kyle, and Caroline Henshaw, Kelsey (Peter) Kruslak, Hannah, Robert, and Emma Day, and Lydia and Hugo Zoells; and one great-grandchild, Oliver Kruslak. Visitation is on Friday, March 31, 6-9 pm at Adolf Funeral Home, 7000 S. Madison St., Willowbrook, IL. Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Bosler Memorial Library in Carlisle, Pennsylvania and to the Penn State Arboretum.
