COSTA MESA — A missing 61-year-old Rancho Santa Margarita woman believed to have been killed by her husband of 39 years once wrote for the Daily Pilot.
Marcia Forsberg worked as a features writer at the newspaper in the 1970s and 1980s, a former staff member said and newspaper archives confirm.
A review of Daily Pilot and Los Angeles Times archives pulled up a few of her old society columns, Orange County on View.
In a 1982 column, she wrote about a South Coast Repertory fundraiser featuring auction items reflective of the era, including a tie worn by Johnny Carson, a jersey worn by Magic Johnson and a baseball autographed by Reggie Jackson. One of the auction prizes was spending a day on the set of "The Dukes of Hazzard."
In another piece from 1982, she wrote about a hospital fundraiser with a "Love Boat" theme. And there were mentions of society page staples like the Commodores Club Ball and Newport-Mesa Schools Foundation.
