Marcia is the Fifth Generation of Embalmers and Funeral Directors, of the Ketcham-Ripley Funeral Home. She is the daughter of Carl and Lucille Ripley. After graduating from The University of Cincinnati, with a degree in Psychology, she entered Mortuary College, and received her licenses as an embalmer and a Funeral Director, in 1975. After her parents passed away, Marcia was responsible for both businesses. On June 30, 2005 the Ketcham’s Furniture & Floor Coverings Business was closed. Today, Marcia continues the family tradition at the Ketcham-Ripley Funeral Home, at 111 West First Street, next to the Ketcham home. Marcia has a daughter, Devon Stansbury. Perhaps, a sixth generation will continue the heritage that began so long ago.
