Marcelle T. “Marcy” McCormick, 75, of Farmington, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2017. She was the wife of Charles E. McCormick.
Marcy was born on April 24, 1942, in Lowell, Mass., the daughter of the late Joseph and Helen (LeVasseur) Belanger. She worked for over 20 years as a client advocate with the Bristol ARC and was a long-time member of St. Joseph Church in Bristol.
Marcy was a social butterfly with a large, diverse, social circle of friends. With friends and family, she enjoyed dancing, crafts, bowling, traveling, bingo and dining out. She was an animal lover. She pampered her pet cats like children and volunteered at a local animal shelter. To many, Marcy was kind, loyal and giving, always offering a shoulder to lean on for a friend in need.
Marcy was a wonderful cook and loved to treat friends and neighbors like family as we gathered around for her table. Since her retirement, helping to raise and spoil her six grandchildren became her biggest passion.
Nevertheless, the love of her life is her husband Charlie. They cherished 54 years of marriage. Together they built a home with a door that was open to all, raised a family, celebrated life and endured hardships. Their love and loyalty to each other exemplifies the true meaning of marriage.
Besides her husband, Marcy leaves her sons, Kevin McCormick and his wife, Mary, Shawn McCormick and his girlfriend, Jaclyn Nevu, all of Bristol; brother, Paul Belanger, and his wife, Elaine, of Lowell, Mass.; sisters, Teresa Denomee of Tyngsboro, Mass., Cecile Fortier and her husband, Richard, of Tewksbury, Mass. and Annette DeNinno and her husband, Vincent, of Bristol, R.I.; grandchildren, Maura, Conor, Shane, Logan, Grayson and Declan McCormick; and several nieces and nephews. Marcy was predeceased by her son, Stephen McCormick.
Calling hours will be held on Sunday, Nov. 5, 2017, between 5 and 7 p.m. at O’Brien Funeral Home, 24 Lincoln Ave., Forestville/Bristol.
