Marsha Kaye Bantle, 65, passed away on Friday, May 1, 2020, at Deaconess Midtown Hospital in Evansville.
She was born on February 24, 1955, in Richland, to the late William “Martin” and Marjorie (Isaacs) Bantle.
She was a 1973 graduate of South Spencer High School. She graduated from beauty school and went on to graduate from nursing school in 1992. Marsha dedicated her life to taking care of others and made the ultimate sacrifice. She will be remembered for her compassion and kind heart, but most importantly as a hero in this ongoing pandemic. Marsha never held back and always told you what she thought whether you wanted to hear it or not. Her honesty and sense of humor will be missed.
Marsha is survived by her fur babies, Maggie and Peanut, aka “the girls”; her brother, Martin Eugene Bantle of Texas; cousins, John Isaacs (Carol) of Boonville, Michael James (Carrie) of Newburgh, Traci Williams (Emory and Paisleigh) of Boonville, Mindy Voegel (Phil and Keven) of Louisiana, Anastasia McCarroll (Jeffrey) of Newburgh, Brian Isaacs (Everett) of Wisconsin, Shirley Isaac of Taylorsville, James Isaac (Bernice) of Taylorsville, Tony Isaac and family of Florida, Rita Cheatham and family of Florida, and Jamie and Faith King of Florida; lifelong friend, Michael Wilhelmus of Louisville; and many other special friends, family, and fellow nursing friends/healthcare heroes.
In addition to her parents, Marsha was preceded in death by her grandparents, Roy and Mabel Isaacs; her uncle, James Roy Isaacs, Jr; and her cousin, Ted Isaac.
