Marcia E. Burnham
September 5, 1963 – January 6, 2024
Marcia Elizabeth Burnham passed away on the morning of January 6, 2024, from heart complications. Born September 5, 1963, in Omaha, NE, she is survived by her husband of over 25 years, Paul “Doc” Burnham; son, Christopher Camarillo (her pride and joy) and his partner, David Islas; sisters, Peggy Stull, Connie Covell, and their families.
Regardless of the many challenges Marcia faced in her life, she always had a bright and cheerful outlook, to the point where most people did not know the medical challenges she lived with each day.
Marcia’s self-reliant and independent attitude led to her accomplishing many things including putting herself through school and graduating to further and enhance her medical career all while raising a family on her own. After marrying Doc in 1998, she returned to school and received a degree in healthcare management, again while raising her family, working full time, and adjusting to married life to someone in the military. When her medical conditions required her to step away from her medical career, she simply took that as a sign to dedicate herself more to family, friends, and civic activities. She actively supported the Tangier Shriners as a member of the Daughters of the Nile and other groups and clubs, as well as her Latter-day Saints church activities.
Marcia was also quite accomplished in the business world. She was the driving force in a few businesses created alongside Doc. The results of these businesses allowed her to provide her family with the ability to enjoy some extras. One of the extras she loved was to travel and explore the world. She loved Europe and the Caribbean and managed to enjoy Italy and Greece this last summer.
Marcia left us way too early, and we will greatly miss her smile and positive outlook on life.
Memorial Services will be held on January 20, 2024, at 11:00 a.m. followed by luncheon and fellowship at the Heafey Hoffmann Dworak & Cutler, West Center Chapel on 7805 West Center Road, Omaha NE 68124. Marcia will be interned at the Omaha National Cemetery at a later date.
