Marci H. Bradley

Marci H. Bradley, nee Bidinger, age 38, of Chicago, beloved wife of Mathew, loving mother of Blair, step-mother of Samantha, dear sister of Kate and Bradley (Natalie) Bidinger, cherished daughter of Nora (Dave) Houser, David Bidinger, and daughter-in-law of Jo Ann Bradley. Marci embraced all that life had to offer with an energetic spirit and love of family, friends, and travel. Graduating in the top 10 from Copley High School (OH) in 1998, Marci participated on the speech and debate team, played varsity volleyball, and was voted most likely to succeed by her classmates. She was granted the prestigious honor of Leadership Award. Along with her school studies and activities, for all 4 years, Marci found time to participate in the youth group workcamp at Bath United Church of Christ. College took Marci to the University of Miami where she graduated magna cum laude with a BS in business finance. She went on to earn her MBA at the University of Chicago. During her college years she worked for the Rape Crisis Center. Her athleticism and extra energy enabled her to run the Chicago Marathon! Marci’s business career began in Chicago, first at Baxter, then GE, and finally at Pampered Chef in finance. While working she mentored college students and volunteered at various charities.  Her love of travel inspired her to work and live in Ireland and France. She visited Dubai, Africa, and Vietnam as well. Marci met the love of her life, Mathew Bradley, and completed her joy with the birth of their daughter Blair. She always said, “I have the perfect life.” Marci wanted to raise awareness of colorectal cancer.

  1. Someone who cares says:

    “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4
    My sincere condolences to the Bradley family and those who knew and loved Marci on your great loss.
    The Bible promises at Acts 24:15 and John 5:28,29 of a resurrection, which is a sure hope of being reunited with our dead loved ones.
