Markie was born on Jan. 24, 1955 to Howard and Frances Harding. Markie retired from Vernay Laboratories after 28 years of service and most recently worked at Wilberforce University. Markie loved the outdoors, especially mushroom hunting in the spring, road farming and fishing. The family wishes to extend thanks and appreciation to Hospice of Dayton, Dr. Mark Collins and his staff for their care, compassion and support.
