Marcia Kleiman Harris

Dec. 12, 1924 — April 11, 2019

Marcia Kleiman was born in Baltimore, Maryland. She was the daughter of David Kleiman and Dorothy Rombro Kleiman. Shortly after Marcia graduated from Goucher College, she met S. Elliott Harris who was a medical student at the time. Their love, passion and respect for one another lasted their entire lives. They were inseparable and madly in love for their 73 years of marriage.

Marcia was a social worker, teacher and co-owned and operated a contemporary art gallery with her sister Toba Kleiman Rochberg for 10 years. Marcia was a volunteer at Sinai Hospital, Walter’s Art Gallery, the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Democratic Party. Marcia’s passions were her husband “Skeets”, her three daughters, Ann Harris of Carbonddale, Peggy Harris-Foster (Chip) of Snowmass Village, Lynn Harris McCorkle (Douglas) of Baltimore, her grandchildren Jason Harris Melnick (Adele) of Basalt, Harrison McCorkle, Lindsay McCorkle and Colin McCorkle and her two great grandchildren Zoe and Elliott Melnick. Marcia loved the outdoors, skiing, hiking, picnicking, exploring new places, traveling, art, classical music, dance, theater and museums. Marcia (and Skeets) came to Aspen every winter and summer from 1970 through 2014.

A celebration for a life well lived will occur at the Harris home in Baltimore on Saturday June 15, 2019, from 1 to 5 p.m.
