Marsha Rothman, age 73, of Pittsfield, IL died peacefully surrounded by family on Tuesday, August 6, 2019 at Illini Community Hospital in Pittsfield.  She was born on November 17, 1945 to Julius & Bessie Scholnik Rothman in St. Louis, MO.  She married James “Jim” F. Zahnen, and he survives.

Marsha was a graduate of University City High School and received her degree from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana campus.  She was employed in the Information Technology sector at various financial institutions in the Chicago, IL locality.  Later, she and Jim acquired the Pine Lakes Campground facility in Pittsfield, IL which they operated for many years.  Upon retiring, Marsha and Jim continued to reside in the rural Pittsfield locality, but enjoyed traveling.  Marsha planned the trips and the couple usually traveled by RV in the United States.  International trips took more planning, but Marsha enjoyed their visits to other countries.  Marsha will be remembered as a fun-loving person who enjoyed gatherings of family and friends.
