According to a previous report in the Packet, Marchand first set foot on Princeton soil in 1966. She and her husband Sy had a house on Cherry Hill Road with a septic system and no sidewalks.

She was known as Ms. Princeton Connectivity, having served 21 years on the Princeton Township Committee (1987-2009), and 14 of those years as mayor.

She had battled very rare T-Cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma with remissions and reoccurrences as a chronic disorder. It is unknown if that was the cause of her death.
