Marsha Oliver


On Sunday evening, October 25, 2020, while at home and with family, Marsha Antionette Perry Oliver was received into the arms of our Lord.

Marsha was born in Panama, Central America, and traveled the world with her military family. She was a librarian in the US Air Force during Vietnam. She married James Richard Oliver in May of 1972 and with him also traveled the world as he was in the US Army. She graduated from Alameda College with a degree in accounting. Marsha retired from the Employees Retirement System of Texas in 2012.

Marsha loved to read, enjoyed traveling, and most of all loved friendship and life. She cherished her new cabin that she said reminded her of Noah’s Ark.

Marsha was preceded in death by her mother, Jessie Perry; her father, George Perry; and her younger brother, Alan Perry.

She is survived by her husband of 48 years, James Richard Oliver; her daughter, Mercedes Gilbert and her husband, Jeff; her son, James Ryan Oliver and his wife, Barbie; two grandsons, Cohen and Corbin Gilbert; her granddaughter, Catalina; her sister, Carolyn McCorkle, and brother George Perry. She has a multitude of family in Panama, Arkansas, and North Carolina along with close friends at ERS and Kids R Kids.

A funeral service will be held at 10 am on November 7, 2020 at St. Helens Catholic Church in Georgetown, Texas.

All funeral arrangements have been made by Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home in Burnet, Texas.

The Oliver Family would like to express our sincere appreciation for all the prayers that have taken place over the past year of Marsha’s battle with all of her illnesses.

Condolences to the family may be offered to
