Marsha Edith White Horsley was born on March 21, 1950, to the union of Lawrence and Helen White in Boston, Massachusetts.

Marsha has been a part of Massasoit Elks Lodge No. 129, Juanita Temple No. 31 I.B.P.O.E OF W. as a sister. She would travel the world. There wasn’t a summer that she wasn’t on a boat. She was the life of the party everywhere she went. If good music was playing, she was right there singing off key and doing her little dance. She was a tiny stylish woman. She had swag before swag was a thing.

Marsha did not just party and travel. She was a librarian at Harvard University, School of Law. All she did was read and read. She probably knows law better than some of the lawyers currently practicing. 35 years dedicated to Harvard and she was the hardest worker there.

She shared her life with her greatest love, Benny Stanley. They met October of 1999. They have been inseparable. She would tease all day long, but she was in love.

Marsha Horsley departed this life on Saturday, May 30, 2020. She was preceded in death by her father, Lawrence and her mother, Helen White.

She leaves to cherish her memory: Her husband, Benny Stanley of Boston, Massachusetts; Her daughter Rita Horsley-Johnson of Baltimore, MD; Her son Raymond Horsley of Boston, Massachusetts; Her siblings Eva Postell, Janet White, Lawrence White, Ronald White of Boston, Massachusetts; grandchildren, Helen (Baltimore), Shawn and Lamarr (California), Assata (Atlanta), Raymond Jr and Rayna (Boston). She recently had her first great grandchild 4 months ago; and a host of other relatives and friends.

A Wake will be held from 2:00 to 4:00pm on Friday June 5, 2020 at Riley-Antoine Funeral Home, 171 Humboldt Ave., Dorchester, MA 02121. Funeral Service will start at 4:00 O’clock
