Born in Mount Carmel in 1935, she was a daughter of the late Irene (Zanella) and Joseph Gidaro.
Marcy was a devoted mother, and after her children were grown, she went to work as a medical records clerk at Fitzgerald Mercy Hospital, where she worked for 20 years. She enjoyed being with people, and after her retirement, became very active with the Seniors Group at St. Andrew's Parish in Drexel Hill, eventually accepting the position of vice president of the group.
She was an avid reader. She enjoyed traveling, spending time with her children, grandchildren and going to the casinos to play the slots. She was also a huge Phillies and Flyers fan and enjoyed watching the Eagles. She was a good friend to so many and will be missed by all.
She will be sadly missed by the wonderful friends whose love, prayers and visits made such a difference to Marcy in her last months.
