Marcy was a member of Sts Joachim & Ann Catholic Church and JASS Club of Sts Joachim & Ann. She was a faithful volunteer at her church’s CARE Service Food Pantry. She was also a regular along with her church friends at Mario’s every Tuesday morning for breakfast.  

Marcy enjoyed playing Kings in The Corner and Canasta. She loved listening to music and dancing. Marcy’s favorite holiday was Christmas. She loved her family and prayed for them daily. It was important to her that she shared her Faith and passed it on to her children and grandchildren. She will be remembered by her beautiful smile, her laughter and her larger-than-life personality. Marcy was quoted in an interview, “It’s only a thin veil between us and our loved ones on the other side of Heaven.” Marcy’s goodbye was always “May God Bless You and Keep You.” Marcella was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. 

In Lieu of Flowers, Catholic Masses preferred, or memorials may be made in Marcy’s name to Sts. Joachim & Ann CARE Service.
