Troy native Marsha Ann Cosby Cetti, 76, of Carrollton, Georgia, passed away peacefully in her sleep on July 7, 2018.

Like many of her family members, Marsha was a graduate of Troy (State) University, where she earned both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in education. She enjoyed a long and successful career as a high school English teacher.

Even more than the profound impact she had on scores of grateful students, her greatest legacies are her deep love for her family and friends, and her unshakable faith in Christ.
