YOUNGSTOWN — Marcella C. “Marcie” Dickey, 66, passed away Thursday morning, Nov. 18, 2021, at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital.

Marcie graduated from Chaney High School in 1973. Shortly after, she began her bartending career, bringing smiles and joy to many patron’s faces daily. Marcie was known as the best bartender in town, pouring the coldest drinks at several taverns including The New Deal, Yohmans, The Bonanza, Lil Gails and Cherols.

Marcie absolutely loved life and was always happy to help anyone she could. She would give the shirt off her back if it meant helping anyone. She was so happy to host several holiday celebrations in her home with family each year. Marcie loved spending past time and shopping with her daughter, Stefanie, which they would often do, and loved having warm heartfelt conversations with her son, John, and always a hot Sunday meal for Sam.

Born to the late John A. Dickey and Aurelia D. Wooten, she will be joining them in heaven along with her stepfather, William “Bill” Wooten; her beloved brother, Robert “Bobbie” Dickey; and her favorite pup, Athena.

Surviving are her amazing children, Stefanie Dickey (Jose) and John R. Dickey (Stephanie); her beautiful sisters, Caroline Dickey Schofield, Patricia Johnson, Georgia Silver and Patty Dickey; her life partner, Samuel A. Vittorio; and loving pup, Tootsie, and cat, Trouble.

A funeral service will be held at 4 p.m. Monday, Nov. 22, 2021, at the Higgins-Reardon Funeral Homes, Austintown Chapel, with calling hours to follow 4:30 to 7 p.m.
