Donna Lee Marchick passed away at her home in Derwood, Maryland, on Wednesday, February 6, 2019, at the age of 63. She had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in September 2018.  She was born in Hagerstown, Maryland, daughter of Edith Patricia (Shank) Carpenter and the late Robert Carpenter. 

In addition to her mother, she is survived by her husband Robert Marchick; son Michael Marchick, daughter in-law Kendra Marchick, and 3 grandchildren Nathan, Matthew, and Caroline Marchick, of Newberry, Florida; and daughter Julie Van der Waag and son-in-law Robert Van der Waag, of Alexandria, Virginia.

She is also survived by her sister Karen Wetzel of Hagerstown, Maryland, and brother Robert Carpenter of Monrovia, Maryland.

Donna graduated from North Hagerstown High School in 1973.  From 1973 to 1978, she worked for the Atomic Energy Commission, where she met her husband, Robert. After years of working as a stay-at-home mom, she worked for Montgomery County Public Schools from 1992 to 2011.

Donna was a creative person who enjoyed crafts, including cross-stitching and scrap booking.  She was a wonderful gift-giver and the handmade items she gave to family and friends adorn many homes, leaving a warm and lasting memory of her kindness.  Always more comfortable serving rather than being served, Donna lived fully as a charitable and compassionate person whose example bettered those whom she knew. 

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, February 16 at St. Francis of Assisi in Derwood, Maryland.  A gathering will begin at 10:30 AM, with a funeral service at 11:30 AM.  Interment will follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Silver Spring, Maryland.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in her name to the National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation, P.O. Box 1848, Longmont, CO 80502.
