Dr. Marcy L. Street

Born April 18, 1959. She passed away peacefully on March 22, 2019 surrounded by many loved ones. Today we remember and celebrate her joyous life.

Dr. Marcy Street was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. She attended the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools for high school. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Oberlin College in 1980 and in 1986 she graduated from University of Illinois Chicago College of Medicine. Marcy completed her residency in dermatology at Mayo Clinic in 1990 and a fellowship in micrographic surgery and dermatologic oncology at University of Wisconsin in 1991. During her fellowship she trained with Dr. Frederic Mohs, who developed the Mohs micrographic surgery technique, becoming the first African-American female fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon. Following fellowship, Marcy moved to Okemos, MI and founded Doctor’s Approach Dermatology, Laser Center, and Medical Spa. Here Marcy received tremendous joy, serving her beloved community through a variety of dermatologic services. Marcy was an active member in numerous professional and social affiliations including but not limited to the American Academy of Dermatology, Michigan Dermatology Society, Skin of Color Society, Women’s Dermatologic Society, and American College of Mohs Surgery.

Marcy enjoyed traveling with family, scuba diving, meditating in her backyard garden, kayaking, biking, dancing, and listening to smooth jazz and rhythm and blues. She was often remembered by her infectious smile, glowing skin, commitment to self-improvement, spiritual wellness, and passion for academic excellence and mentorship.

She is survived by her mother Marceine E. Street, daughters Chelsea St. Claire (Ben Himelhoch) and Kayla St. Claire, sister Myra Street-Nelson, and nephew Ryan Nelson. She was preceded in death by her brother-in-law Ralph L. Nelson who inspired her pursuit of medicine and dermatology.

Marcy’s life will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 30, 2019, at the Eagle Eye Banquet Center, 15500 Chandler Rd., Bath, MI.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to The Skin Cancer Foundation (www.skincancer.org/giving).

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Dr. Street’s passing. I was one of her early patients, and had been seeing her since she first came to the Lansing area. She was a wonderful dermatologist, so skilled, patient, kind and professional. I’m sure I speak for all of her patients when I say how much I will miss her and her lovely, calming energy. My condolences to her family and friends.

I am in Florida and so saddened to hear of the passing of this beautiful woman. She treated me for skin cancer about 24 years ago and told me to find a MOHS surgeon in Florida for my skin exams here. Every time I saw her, she looked younger. I can’t believe this news because she was so vivacious and I wish that the obituary told her cause of death. It is a shock to me. I am returning to Michigan in a month and planned on seeing her this summer. May God bless her family to whom I extend my deepest condolences and prayers.

I am so sorry to hear of Marcy’s passing. To her beautiful daughters, mother & sister, I am thinking of you all during this difficult time & the hard times to come. Perhaps she was welcomed to the afterlife by my dad and they have shared a dance or two already. He loved her very much.

I am so, so sorry to lose her. I am stunned, but I will forever remember her. She was so beautiful. She was so proud of her professional accomplishments and her daughters (Kayla and Chelsea); yet, I was always so impressed with her drive and determination to succeed. When she walked into the room her warm smile and willingness to listen captured the room. After I stopped working for her, I missed our many discussions. While we will not talk again, she made such a deep impression on me. I pray for her daughters and her family.

When we made the decision to launch the Bambu Fund you were at the core of all we envisioned for the future. A key shareholder and member of our Board. We will press forward with a renewed sense of urgency and purpose. We love you, appreciate you and miss you! Chelsea and Kayla, we are available to you always.

Dr. Street will be greatly missed by myself and many of her patients. She had been my dermatologist for 9 years since I came to Lansing and I could never have found a better, more competent, more caring, dermatologist in the Country. Yes, and as others have said, she had the warm smile and truly cared about her patients. She was a wonderful person and a great loss to our community and profession – sincere condolences to her family and friends.

Twenty-six (26) years ago, our family met your family at a mutual friends barbecue. Kayla was weeks old and Chelsea was a toddler. Our daughters (then 3 and 4 years old) were so happy to see your beautiful babies because they were so much smaller than themselves. When we all became your patients, our girls called you Dr. Marcy because you were more than our doctor, you were our friend. Your warm smile and genuine caring was like medicine for the sole. We thank you for being your special self. No one can ever take your place. Our love to Kayla & Chelsea. Dr. Marcy Rest In Peace.

Marcy was a couple of years behind me in Derm residency at Mayo Clinic. She was an excellent young physician, and was friendly and bright to be around. Lots of good memories. Sorry she has passed from this life so soon
