January 17, 1932 — December 10, 2022

Marcia Diamond Tobin, 90, formerly of Spartanburg, SC, died Saturday, December 10, 2022 at Northside Hospital, Cumming, GA. She was born January 17, 1932 to the late Ida Shager and Albert Diamond in Elyria, Ohio, where she lived until she was five. The family then moved to Philadelphia, PA, where she met her late husband, Jack Tobin. They were happily married for 63 years.

She instilled values of kindness and generosity in everything she did. She was a wonderful and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother and will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

She engaged in artwork up until the last weeks of her life, painting many days of the week. Additionally, she was an avid reader, reading as many as five books a week.

Throughout her life, she also applied her creativity in baking and cooking for her temple community and for her family. Her specialties included mandel bread, challah, and blintzes.
