Marcina Mildred Monica Marie Robertson
Marcina Robertson, beloved sister and aunt, passed away in her sleep, March 24, 2021 from complications of liver disease.
Born to Leo (Dude) and Ruth Robertson on December 28, 1956 in Granite City, Illinois. She was a cheerleader in junior high and when the family moved to Utah was active in band and pep squad at Tooele High.
Nursing became her passion as she became an LPN by the age of 19. She then attended Westminster College where she received her BSN and MBA. After a successful nursing career at St. Mark's Hospital for over 20 years she became involved in provider relations programs at Cigna then Select Health. She kept to her nursing roots by overseeing diabetes education and immunizations. She leaves behind a legacy of helathcare initiatives from her varied career and will be sorely missed by countless colleagues. Always the social butterfly, she made and kept friends effortlessly. She leaves a pervasive void in the lives of family and friends who are left to muddle through without her organizing lead.
Marcina is preceded in death by her parents and Murphy, the best dog ever. She is survived by her siblings Leo (Julie Robertson, Michael (Darlyn) Robertson, Rebecca Robertson, Carleen (Lance) McNees and Laura Horton. Her absence will be felt by an abundance of nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.
