Mary Troy

1923 - 2014 PITTSFIELD Mary Virginia Troy, a Pittsfield native, passed away at the age of 90 at the home of her daughter in Laguna Hills, Calif. on January 21. Such a long life brings richness, stories and lots of changes that are often seen when we are granted longevity. Mary was born in Pittsfield on August 12, 1923 to the late Jack and Alzine Virginia Troy, also of Pittsfield. Her only sibling, James A. Troy, fought at Normandy in World War II, was wounded in action, and died overseas. He was a purple heart recipient and Mary remained intensely proud of her brother's service. She had five children and is survived by Margo Marcovicci of Sylmar, Calif., Pamela Nagy of Sutton, Mass., Michelle Stugger Schneider of McLean, Va, Susan Heravi of Laguna Hills, Calif., and her son, Jena Marcovicci of Richmond, Mass., who passed away in 2007. She also had 11 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. In Mary's final years she courageously battled cancer and was cared for by her daughter Susan. Mary will be remembered as a beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She loved the beauty of the Berkshires and its timeless lifestyle. She had an unrelenting energy and youthfulness. She enjoyed meeting with friends, going to Nautilus Gym until she was 80 and sitting on the porch at The Red Lion Inn. She loved scrabble and keeping current with the news, as well as the color pink and straw hats. Because of her classic beauty, in her youth she turned down offers to be in the movies. In Mary's passing, Pittsfield loses a piece of its own past. Mary Troy, a friend to everyone, embodied a freedom of spirit and a love of life to all she met. She will be truly missed by her family and friends. Pittsfield will never see another like her. FUNERAL NOTICE: A service will be held 9:30 a.m. Monday, Oct. 6, at St Mark's chapel on West Street followed by a burial at St. Joseph's cemetery
