    So very sorry to Marsha’s family. I know how much you will miss her. She definitely was a very kind woman. She was like that even as we were growing up. Now she can watch over everyone in heaven until we get there. RIP Marsha

    So sorry to the friends and family! I worked with Marsha many years at the distribution center and she was such a hoot. We would practically attack her for the Avon books and I remember how her face lit up talking about her grandchildren ! She was a great Person and will be missed! I’m honored to have known Marsha.

    I would like to Thank You for your 33 plus years of service to Wesco. I enjoy our frank direct conversations and communication with a get it done attitude. Your ability to be accurate with the customers and vendors and to keep the warehouse stocked were outstanding as well as keeping up with vendor returns. I really appreciated all that you did to Help make Wesco the Best Place to Work and Shop. I especially looked forward to our Friday morning Egg McMuffin .Your Boss, Co-worker, and Most importantly your Friend.
