I worked for many years as an RN with Marcia. She was our Sunday regular near the end of her career at CPH. We could always rely on her. I always felt that she was my friend . A great nurse!

So sorry to hear of Mrs Macey’s passing. I remember what loyal hockey fans she and her husband were when our boys played hockey. May she Rest In Peace. I know how deeply she loved her family.❣️❣️

Kyle and Laura
I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. She was a wonderful lady and a great sister-in-law. The times we were able to get together for lunch, half way between Mass & NY, were some of the best. There's nothing like being able to catch-up and laugh a whole lot with loved ones. She's now at peace. Love to you and your families.

I regret not being able to spend more time with my dear Aunt Marcia. Her smile and laughter will remain with me forever, as she had such a delightful way about her that made everyone around her happier. There were too many miles between us that limited the time our family here in Massachusetts could spend together, but we have memories that will endure - in later years, meeting halfway to spend hours together, laughing and catching up when we were able. She will be so missed by all of her family but always in our hearts. My love and big hugs to Kyle and Laura - I wish we could all be there with you. These thoughts and prayers come from not only me, but also Ray and Uncle Phil, too.

Marcia was such a special and sweet lady. I worked with her for quite a while at the elementary school at Potsdam Central. She was such an inspiration to see her working and being so happy and eager to work at her age she just kept going she was such a great person.
She will be greatly missed thoughts and prayers are with the family.
