Milwaukee - (Nee Snopek). A life-long resident of Milwaukee, born February 23, 1926 and passed peacefully on December 5, 2019 at the age of 93. Preceded in death by her parents; husband of 37 years, Eugene Skowronski; 3 brothers and 2 sisters; and granddaughter Carrie Crystal Stuckert. Loving mother of Sharon (Todd) Stuckert and Catherine (Tom) Haefke. Cherished grandmother of Michael Stuckert and Kristopher (Erica) Stuckert. Great-grandmother of Brodie, Elijah, and Keira Stuckert. Dear sister of Virginia Cesarz. Further survived by other loved relatives and many friends.

Marcy and her husband Gene operated Gene & Marcy's Holler House bowling alley and tavern on Lincoln Ave. in Milwaukee. They took over operation from Gene's father Michael Skowronski in 1954 and ran it until Gene's death in 1990. Marcy, along with family members have been running the business ever since.

Marcy is well known for being one of Milwaukee's old-time barkeepers. She knew countless jokes and sayings and was always ready to tell them to the many customers that would walk through her door. She was a bundle of energy and was always up to some sort of shenanigans 24 hours a day, which used to drive Gene crazy.

She had the opportunity to travel the world, and she also had the opportunity to live elsewhere in the US, but she always chose to remain home at her Holler House.

In addition to Marcy's family, she is also survived by the thousands of friends she made over the years. She always called them her "extended family" which is the reason she kept going all those years, and she truly meant it.

Visitation will be held at Max A. Sass & Sons-Greenridge Chapel on Sunday, December 8 from 3-7PM. Service at 6PM. Marcy would love if you would wear your Holler House attire. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at ST. MARY CATHOLIC FAITH COMMUNITY (9520 W. Forest Home Ave., Hales Corners) on Monday, December 9 at 10:30AM. If you would like to process to the church, please meet at the funeral home by 9AM. Interment to follow at Wood National Cemetery.

Dear Skowronski Family,
Very sorry for your loss. I have fond memories way back from the 1960's when my grandmother Marge Frankowski (a few houses from the Holler House on 21st. Street) would take me the bar. (When kids could go with their parents!) I remember the player piano, the bowling alley, and sitting up to the bar with an orange soda. My aunt & cousin lived upstairs for many years . . .

Thank you to the Milwaukee Icon who made so many people feel special!

Dear Sharon and family: Your mother (and your father) were such wonderful people. My Uncle Ray used to bowl on the lanes and my parents would stop in there from time to time when they lived on 33rd and Hayes. She will be missed by thousands who knew her and loved her.

When you hear and read all the stories people tell about Marcy, may it bring an even richer understanding of how much she meant to everyone lucky enough to know her. Marcy is "One in a Million" and will never EVER be forgotten. (Heaven will never be the same now that Marcy has arrived.) We all love you so much. RIP Marcy!

Marcy welcomed me right away to the Holler House several years ago. I loved her humor, and just sitting there and hanging out with her. The HH is amazing, and it's thanks to her and her wonderful family. All my love and condolences to the family. Marcy, I will be drinking to you and your memory, and telling some sort of dirty joke! xoxo
