Marcy Butcher passed away Friday, March 26, 2021 at a Harbor House Hospice following a brief illness. She was born on October 10, 1946 in Mobile, Alabama to the late O.J. and Bessie Peppenhorst Cochran.


Marcy graduated high school from Channelview High School. Afterwards, she became a licensed vocational nurse (LVN). Marcy then changed careers, deciding to become a teacher by continuing her education at Sam Houston State University where she obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Science and History along with a Master’s in Education.  Marcy held a certificate in Principalship, and was a science lab curriculum trainer for the State of Texas. During her education career she taught Kindergarten, Sixth Grade Science and Life Skills Special Education.

        Charities that Marcy contributed to included volunteering for the Kairos Prison Ministry, which addresses the spiritual needs of the incarcerated, and the Oklahoma Indigenous American (Indians) Fund, where she performed several mission trips; Marcy’s great-grandmother, named Waters, was 100% Native American with whom she shared a special bond. During her later years in life, Marcy became heavily involved in the United Methodist Women Southwest District. There she held a state office and became involved in the Legacy Fund.

      Marcy was active at Roots and Relics in the Downtown Rosenberg District where, with her vender brand “Memories of the Heart”, she sold homemade, canned goods along with antiques. She was known for her “Cowboy Candy” Jalapeno Jelly.

    She is survived by her son, Christopher Butcher of Wharton, and daughter, Elaine Tackett, along with son-in-law Steve Tackett, both of Rosenberg.
