Marcy worked for the Chicago Police Department as a school crossing guard for 53 years. She retired in 2007 at the age of 88. She loved her job and every single child she crossed safely to and from school each day. Rain or shine, Marcy was out there every single day. She received two recognition awards for her outstanding devotion and punctuality. In her spare time Marcy enjoyed playing the harmonica and was very good at it. She will be missed by many.
