Copeland Funeral Service

Ask a family we have served… ™



Michelle Theresa Marcil, 38, gained her wings on Sunday, July 3, 2022, while she was visiting in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Michelle was born on July 17, 1983, in Yankton, South Dakota, to Darwin and Toni Smith. Her Dad was in the United States Navy so they moved a lot. Michelle always missed her friends she left behind, but with her outgoing personality she never had problems making new friends. She lived in Seattle and Oak Harbor, WA, Denver, Virginia Beach, and finally settled in Beaufort, South Carolina.

After High School, Michelle went on to be a Registered Nurse and then a Hospice Nurse. She was a much loved caregiver.

Michelle is survived by two daughters, Jamie Smith and Samantha Marcil; her parents of Beaufort; two sisters, Darci (Harley) Deal of Easley, SC and Andrea Smith of Beaufort; many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends.

Michelle will be missed by so many. She will be remembered for her laughter and sense of humor always trying to make people laugh and for her very loving heart.

The family will receive friends from 4 until 6 o’clock Tuesday, July 12, 2022, at Copeland Funeral Service – One Copeland Drive.

Memorials may be made to the family by sending contributions to 4357 Quail Drive, Beaufort, South Carolina 29906.

  9. Maggie Maher says:

    Although I knew Michelle for a brief time while living in Beaufort, she made a lasting impression on me. When Michelle walked into a room, her presence was indeed noticed. There was something about her that is hard to depict in words; it was the instant calm she would bring to chaos, it was the settling of nerves she would bring to crippling anxiety, and it was the hope she brought to those suffering. People like Michelle are far and few between, she will not be forgotten.

    For her beloved daughters, please, please know you were the love of her life. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
