Bill and Cherie Marcum began their career in the farming industry in the 1940's. They added greenhouses to their farming practice growing hanging baskets and selling tomatoes to local grocers. Before long, Bill and Cherie could see that this line of work could "grow" into something more. With encouragement and an increased demand from current customers, Bill and Cherie established Marcum's Nursery at the current location in Goldsby, Oklahoma.
In 1982, landscape services began at Marcum's Nursery. On that day, Monty and Kelly Marcum, Juan Martinez, Elisio Ortiz, and Juan Angelas began installing the first residential “official” landscape project. Twenty-three years later those same people are still employed at Marcum’s Nursery.
Monty and Kelly, became partners in the family business in 1987.In February 1994, our Oklahoma City location opened at 119th and Pennsylvania Avenue. That same year, Bill and Cherie's daughter, Marcia Marcum Tadlock, became a partner in the family business.
Marcum's employs over 60 employees year-round. We pride ourselves in having over 90,000 square feet of green house and shrub areas and the largest selection of trees in central Oklahoma growing over 30,000 trees on 200 acres of Oklahoma soil.
Since the beginning, the Marcum family has established the work ethic that our customers are our priority and that our goal is to deliver quality merchandise and service. This commitment and work ethic still holds true today and we believe is the result of our continued success.
Marcia was a very special woman who touched many lives. Her love for life and others was evident
in her voluntary efforts in every aspect of her children's lives. As described by her daughter, Marcia
changed lives, inspired her family and friends, and encouraged her children (Chloe, Tyler, and Jake)
to never give up.
Marcia was recently presented the Fan of the Year Award from Norman North High School.
Marcia battled pancreatic cancer for six months and received treatment from Norman Regional Hospital and from the Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Zion, Ill. She was blessed with the care of wonderful doctors and nurses who truly loved her. We hope that her courageous battle brings awareness to the affects of pancreatic cancer.
We are grateful for Marcia's legacy and the example she set for us.
We will miss her beautiful smile, infectious laughter and tender hugs. She will always be missed but
will remain in our hearts forever. Donations in Marcia's memory may be made to PanCan.org
(Pancreatic cancer website) or Norman North SPUD week.
