Marcella "Marci" (Wieloch) Masley, 85, of Ellington, loving wife of the late Paul Masley, passed away peacefully Tuesday, July 3, 2018.

She was born and raised in Dudley, Massachusetts, the daughter of the late John and Josephine (Pajak) Wieloch. A graduate of Bartlett High School, Class of 1951, and of Forsyth School for Dental Hygienists in Boston, Class of 1953. After residing in Missouri and California she settled in Ellington in 1966, continuing her hygienist vocation locally. She was an avid golfer and longtime member of Ellington Ridge Country Club. Her major achievement at ERCC was mastering four holes-in-one, on all of the par 3 holes. She also won the Senior Championship and Super Senior Championship at ERCC and was a member of the Connecticut Women's Golf Association. She enjoyed playing bridge, baking, along with spending time with her family and friends. She also was a longtime communicant of St. Luke Church, Ellington.

Marci and Paul traveled worldwide from the Austrian Alps to the pyramids of Egypt. She was an impassioned cross-country skier visiting various venues such as Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada, to the Trapp Family Lodge in Vermont. A devoted UConn women's basketball fan who never missed watching a game and always reminded you of their TV schedule. Marci belonged to the "After-Lunch Bunch" Bowling club, and the neighborhood book club, "The Bookies." She was also an accomplished gardener who loved taking care of her "furry canine and feline friends." She liked to knit, crochet, do needlepoint, and quilting, and was a wonderful seamstress. She also hooked Oriental rugs. Another achievement was to help defeat the nuclear waste dump proposed to the towns of Ellington, South Windsor, and East Windsor in the early 90s, as a member of the "Connecticut Opposed to Waste" (COW) group.

She is survived by her beloved children, Mark J. Masley and his wife, Linda, of St. Augustine, Florida, Paula J. Moses and her husband, David, of Ellington; her nieces, her beloved Puli, Annie, and many dear friends.
