November 6, 1975 - December 27, 2017
Born November 6, 1975 to Joseph G. and Marta Johnson Lake, Marcine was a quiet middle child. In high school she discovered her love of theater. Marcine graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre Arts, and earned her equity card for stage management. She was a free spirit who loved the theater, art, nature, spirituality, and fairies.
She lived in Portland and Chicago (working with several theaters- most notably Eclipse Theatre Company as stage manager & production manager), and returned to Utah where she lived the remainder of her life. She was active in local theater productions and nonprofits. Marcine also received an Associate of Science Medical Assisting degree. She found her greatest joy in being a mother to her step-daughter, Madeline. They shared an amazing bond.
Following Christmas 2017 celebrations, Marcine's health rapidly declined and her family gathered to be with her in her final hours. They are extremely indebted to Intermountain Hospice for their wonderful care of Marcine during her final weeks. On December 27, 2017, surrounded by her siblings, Marcine Lake peacefully passed away from alcohol-related liver and heart failure.
Marcine is survived by her step-daughter, Madeline Stephens; parents, Joe & Marta Lake; siblings: Machelle Lake, Craig & Susan Lake, Melinda & Kurt Brey, Brad & Stacey Lake, and Kirsten & Izzy Huertas; 19 nieces, nephews, and their spouses.
