On May 19th, 1940, Marcelline Yvonne Jadinak was born to Joseph and Dorothy Jadinak in Minneapolis, MN. Her family moved to San Francisco when she was 12, the returned to Minnesota for one winter and decided California was where they wanted to be. They landed in Pacifica, a small town just south of San Francisco. Marcie graduated from Jefferson High school in 1958. She worked as a secretary. It was in 1961 in Pacifica where she met and fell in love with Frank Brady. They married in 1962 and had two children, John and Mary and decided to raise them in Pacifica. Marcie worked at Terra Nova High School and at a few construction companies as secretary. In 2007 they moved to Idaho, where they built a lovely home on a private airstrip. Marcie and Frank had great experiences in Idaho, flying the back country, boating, they became volunteer firefighters and EMTs. They hosted many voting events in their airplane hangar. Marcie enjoyed shopping. Her favorite was “back to school clothes shopping” with her grandkids. She was known to run in the San Francisco Bay to Breakers race for many years with her good friend and neighbor Martha, they walked nearly every afternoon or night together. Marcie and Martha were able to talk Frank into joining them one year in the race.

Marcie liked everyone she met. She had a special place in her heart for the kids on Victoria Way.  Marcie had a great sense of humor. She was a great cook and a true lady. In 2014 Marcie was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and passed away on June 11, 2022.
