Marcia “Marci” Rick

Oct 01, 1949 - Oct 24, 2021


On Sunday October 24, 2021 Marci Rick unexpectedly – but peacefully passed away in her home to be with her Heavenly Father at the age of 72.

Marci was born on October 1, 1949 in Sheboygan WI where she remained living throughout her life. Marci went to St. Peter Claver and Holy Name grade schools and graduated from Sheboygan North High School in 1967.

On May 8, 1976 Marci married the love of her life, Allan Rick Sr. where they together made wonderful memories raising their three children.

She then went on to get her Associates Degree from Lakeshore Technical Institute in sales and marketing in 1987 and continued on to receive her bachelor’s degree in sales and marketing from Silver Lake College in 1991, graduating with honors.

Marci worked at Pentair until her retirement, and afterward continued to work various part time jobs within the Sheboygan area.

She was known by all for her ever-present laugh, humbled heart and love for her family. She loved to reminisce and share family stories, especially the memories with her only true love and late husband, Allan Rick Sr.

Marci loved spending time in her wood shop where she never shied away from power tools or starting a new wood project of her own. She was especially proud of her latest job at Home Depot in Sheboygan.

Her unselfish and adventurous nature never wavered, even during hard times. Also known as very strong-willed, Marci was never short of hugs and ALWAYS voiced her “I love yoouuu” to her family and friends.

Marci is survived by her children, Tracey (Chad) Joosse, Scott (Janeen) Rick and Allan (Denise) Rick; grandchildren, Mitchell, David Lee, Nolan, Gretta, Emmitt and Hazel. Brother, Ralph (Debbie) Zoerner and additional nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Allan Rick Sr.; parents, Ross and Ethel Mae Zoerner and siblings, Virginia Baumann and Ross Zoerner Jr.

During high school, Marci and I were partners in crime. Like the time it was her birthday and we both skipped school to make an angel food cake for friends who were coming later. We finally put the cake in the oven and turned around to find one more cup of flour still sitting on the table. So...we had to pull the cake from the oven and finish. Or, the time we were at the County fair. We had ridden several rides and her tummy was feeling a little upset. But, she thought she was good enough to ride the ferriswheel. We took in the whole ride and they were stopping it at every seat to let the riders off. Of course we were at the very top and when they stopped, the cart began to sway. Well - that did it - she was vomiting over the side. A couple of the poor folks below had a few choice words. Or, the time we were out in the boat in the harbor. Marci had way, way too much line out, which we didn't know. Another boat was traveling in the opposite direction when yet another boat crossed behind us and caught the other fisherman's line as well as Marci's line. The line whipped out of the water and took the hat off the man who had crossed both lines behind us. We could have decapitated that poor guy. I could write a book of funny stories of time spent with Marci. Once we graduated we drifted apart, but I've never forgotten my adventures with my friend, Marci. My sympathies to the family.

I would like to express my sympathy to Marci’s family. I used to work with Marci at the Sports Core and enjoyed her very happy and pleasant personality. She was a joy to work with. I hadn’t seen her for years but in this past year, I ran into her while I was at the Home Depot. We reconnected and it made my heart feel good that we could reminisce about some of the good times we had working together. I’m so sorry for your loss but she was a wonderful person and I feel blessed to have known her.
