Marcy worked at Quaker, Warwick’s and was a stay-at-home mother of three until her youngest daughter went to school. She then worked at JC Penney’s and Allie’s Fine Clothing store.
Marcy’s greatest joy was her family. She never said no when asked to watch over her five grandchildren or any of her great-grandchildren. Playing games, puzzles, playing cards or just singing kid songs. She also loved crossword puzzle. Her family was always around the pool in the back yard for the last 50 years. Plenty of kids, she loved that. She also loved baking chocolate chip cookies.
She was active with the band boosters when her daughter Betty was in color guard. She watched her grandkids play soccer, swim meets, play baseball and football during their high school years. Chaperoning the kids on many school trips.
