Mercy Plascencia

Passed away on April 3, 2018

Mercy Plascencia went to be with our Lord April 3rd, 2018. Preceded in death by her husband Joe, son Doug, granddaughter Melissa, great-granddaughter Gabriella. Survived by siblings: Louise (Tom) Martinez, Joe (Theresa) Serna, Abel (Alfonsa) Serna. Children: Charlotte (Michael) Zupan, Sheron Plascencia, and Bruce Plascencia. Grandchildren: Tiffany (John) Garcia, Kimberly (Ricky) Shawcroft, Brian Sanchez, Casey Plascencia, Ashton Plascencia. Great-grandchildren: Korey, Ryan, Hannah, Damian, Nastasia, and Izabella. To say she lived life to the fullest would be forgetting to mention all the fun and crazy things she has done in her life! She rode crazy roller coasters every summer, went to the State Fair to drink Bud Light and listen and dance to live music all night. She loved working as a teacher’s aide up until the day she went home. Her past passions included working and co-owning a radio station and serving with the Democratic Party as Precinct Chair for over 40 years. She had never been sick or spent the night in a hospital bed. Going to Vegas at least four times a year, sailing on cruise ships all over the world, and traveling to Sturgis and every biker Rally she could attend from Florida to Texas. There is so much more to this glorious spitfire of a woman that we had the privilege to love and call our own. Memorial Service Monday April 9th at 2:00pm At Praise Assembly- Reception to follow.

We had so much fun at Wilson’s! She always hosted our Christmas party, our trips to cripple creek. Mercy and Sandy together again. I don’t think those are clouds out there I think those two are smoking as they use to say “till they get dizzy” telling stores. Mercy was a very special lady and I have a lot of fond memories of her.❤️❤️❤️❤️

Mercy was loved by hundreds of children. She touched many little minds and hearts. She read with the children she taught them sight words and loved to sit and talk with each child. She always laughed when the children told her something funny or listened when they were sad. She is already missed but the wonderful memories of our beloved “grandma” Mercy will always be with us.

Dearest Mercy,
Your name fits you so well. I have enjoyed seeing you every time you came to the SRDA office for the Foster Grandparents Volunteer Program. I enjoyed your visits about your trips and cruises. I would like to share with your family how important you were to the school and children you encouraged and tutored. Here are some of the reports from the teacher. " Mercy makes a difference in our classroom. The children she works with gain the reading skills they need to excel. The students enjoy her and love to have Grandma Mercy in the classroom." As you can tell by that statement, Mercy made a difference in other children's lives outside of her family.
We were fortunate to have her a as volunteer.
I have been blessed to know you Mercy and my heart will smile when I remember your smile!! We will miss you.

Aunt Mercy just wasn't my great aunt in my eyes. She was just my aunt. She was my dads god mother and she was family. We go to her house at Christmas and I think my first real memory of her was her dogs. Her love for animals. She always had her hair done and make up. She always dressed sharp. Always kind. Loving. Happy. She was devoted. And knowing she's with Uncle Joe, Doug and Melissa I know she's in a better place and will forever live in our hearts.
