        Marcia Galloway was born on August 19,1918 to Godwin Odin Carlson (known as Goody Anderson) and Hannah Carlson (nee Coundley). Consequently, Marcia grew up as Marcia Anders on. The family lived for some time on a float house in Commercial Inlet. Anderson's mother operated the Reliable Boathouse (also known as Anderson's). The business rented canoes and row-boats, and ran ferries to Newcastle, Protection and Gabriola Islands. The business also included some camp houses, a store and a dance hall on property on Protection Island known as Happyland. Marcia attended Middle Ward, North Ward, Quennell and John Shaw schools. In 1931, Marcia was crowned May Queen. In 1939, Marcia married Thomas Galloway (of Galloway's Meat Market). They had four children: Glendon Earl (Glen) Galloway, who started the Nanaimo Bathtub Races, Randa Menzies, Patricia Martin, and Marcia Lott. Marcia Galloway has been a member of the Hospice Society, Historical Society, Toastmistress Club, Bowen Park Seniors, and the Ladies Golf Club. Marcia and a friend organized the first Mid-Island Golf Tournament in 1947. Galloway died around 2002.
