It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our loving mother, Elizabeth Marucci, into the arms of our Heavenly Father.
Elizabeth "Libby" passed away on May 3, 2022 at the age of 93, at her home. She was born on February 14, 1929, in Hibbs, PA, German Twp.
Libby was preceded in death by her parents Donald Burrie and Mary Burrie Norman; as well as the love of her life for 70 years, her husband Negie Marucci, Sr.; her loving son, Donald Marucci, Sr.; her brother, Clyde Burrie; and sister, Donna Miske.
She was a loving and devoted wife, mother grandmother and great grandmother. She treasured her family and enjoyed every moment that she spent with them. She enjoyed cooking, baking and sewing for her family and will always be remembered for her many talents. She also enjoyed planting flowers and tending to them in her flower garden. Libby was a faithful member of the former Holy Rosary Church and a current member of St. Francis of Assisi Church.
Left to cherish all of the beautiful memories of her are her children: Vince (Rose) Marucci, Negie (Liz) Marucci, Jr., Mary Beth Barreca, and Richard (Dana) Marucci; her grandchildren, who she adored, Angela McCoy, Amanda Chetirko, Negie Marucci, III, Kristina Haluska, Breann Barreca, Barry Barreca, Jr., Megan Marucci, Rick Marucci, Jr., Donald Marucci, Jr., Bethany Marucci, and Cody Marucci; twelve great grandchildren; her sister, Dorothy Murray of Beloit, Ohio, Beverly (Bernard) James, of Leckrone; and brother, Bill Burrie of Rices Landing.
A heartfelt thank you to Amedysis Hospice and especially to Jackie Workman and Lisa Jones for their loving and gentile care of Libby.
