Marsha Brockmeyer: Creating a Legacy of Joy in Honor of a Loved One

Marsha Brockmeyer: Creating a Legacy of Joy in Honor of a Loved One

Marsha is a music fan. Pop, rock, jazz–she loves it all. So, when she was introduced to CCA's MyMusicRx program, it immediately struck a chord. "As the District Manager of Target, I was also managing the Community Giving program. I went on a hospital tour to see MyMusicRx in action," she explained. "It was such a profound experience. I literally cried tears of joy."

From that point on, Marsha made sure Target was a grant partner and major contributor to CCA. After she retired from Target, her support of CCA continued to remain strong. She served on the Board of Directors for five years. She also, shared her time, energy and business resources as a training and leadership consultant for 5 years. In May of 2015, she agreed to join CCA team and Direct the National Expansion of MyMusicRx bed-side.

In 2010, Marsha and her husband Gene decided to make a gift in their estate plan to CCA. With this inspirational gift, Marsha and Gene became inaugural members of CCA's Founder's Society. Gene passed away in 2013, but Marsha says she's proud to continue to support CCA's mission for the both of them. Recently, Marsha added CCA as a life insurance beneficiary.

"For me, it's a way of celebrating his memory," she explains. "When I think about him, I think about his generous heart and the love we shared for CCA. Now when I give, I do it in honor or Gene."
