She was born in Corpus Christi, Texas on January 19, 1963. Marsha graduated with highest
honors with a degree in Computer Science from Corpus Christi State University. In Corpus, she
and Michael Brittain fell in love, married in 1993, and moved to Iowa. They enjoyed 27 joyful
years together. Their love and devotion for each other was evident to all who know them.
Marsha was happiest when she was with her family, her church family, or in her craft room.
Over the last 20 years she was active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, where
her kindness and patience were put to good use as a youth leader. She could often be found
researching fun projects to make with her grandkids, making cards to send to a friend, or sewing
or crocheting a gift. She was a natural nurturer, evidenced by her beautiful and well-tended
garden.
Through her battle with cancer, Marsha maintained her dignity and quiet strength. Her faith and
grace were a blessing to her family and all who knew her.
Marsha was a loving mother and is survived by daughters, Suzy Johnson (Nathan Johnson),
Megan Brittain (Brandon Rutledge), and Sabrina Brittain (Ehssan Alwareeth). She was a
wonderful grandmother to Isaac Johnson, Lila Rutledge, and Rocky Rutledge. She will also be
missed by her husband, Michael, her mother, Toffie Morales, her father, Roger Morales, her
sisters, Monique Morales (Mark Davey), and Yvette Morales as well as countless relatives and
friends.
The family wishes memorial contributions be made to Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance
