Obituary, Chadwick Funeral Service (New London, NH), 19 Aug 2011:

Marcia Van Deventer Bumsted, 85, resident of Valley Terrace, White River Junction, Vermont, died Wednesday, August 10, 2011 at New London Hospital, New London, New Hampshire. Her daughter Missy was at her side. She was born in Plainfield, New Jersey on November 30, 1925, the daughter of Joseph Neff and Marcia Furman Van Deventer.

Marcia graduated from the St. Luke's Hospital School of Nursing and moved to Summit, New Jersey, after marrying Bartram Bumsted, to start their family. They later moved to Westfield, New Jersey. She joined the Junior League and volunteered at various organizations. She also acted as "choir mother" to the boys of the St. Paul's Episcopal Church's Choir of Men and Boys in Westfield. After moving to North Conway, New Hampshire, Marcia volunteered at the North Conway Library and the Memorial Hospital Rehab Department, and was active at St. Margaret of Scotland Church. Marcia loved her many cats and dogs throughout the years, many of them coming from Harvest Hill Animal Shelter, while residing in North Conway. However, her greatest passion was her family. She loved her family dearly and took great pride in her knitting sweaters and other items for her children and grandchildren.

Marcia is preceded in death by Bartram, her husband of 63 years, who passed away on May 18, 2011; her parents; and a brother, Gerald R. Putnam.

She is survived by two sons, J. Tyler (Holly) from Florida and Peter (Barbara) from New York; a daughter, Missy Waterman (Carl) from New Hampshire; and eight grandchildren, Sara, PJ, Amanda, Emily, and Morgan Bumsted; Megan, Casey, and Colin Waterman.

An interment service will be held for both Marcia and Bart on September 24th at 11:30 a.m. at St. Margaret of Scotland Anglican Church. Memorials may be sent to St. Margaret of Scotland Anglican Church, PO Box 1555, Conway, NH, 03818 or Harvest Hill Animal Shelter, 1389 Bridgton Rd, Fryeburg, Me., 04038.
