LACROSSE- Marcy was born to Josephine (McConaghy) and La Verne Winchell on August 15, 1934 in Rhinelander, WI. She graduated from Aquinas in 1953. Marcy held various jobs in her lifetime but her passion was her ceramic business (Marcy’s Irish Ornaments) which she owned and operated for close to 20 years. She also worked at Vaalar’s Home Improvement.   Marcy was an advocate for her Irish Heritage and was the driving force in getting the Shamrock Club started in the La Crosse area. She was Wild Irish Rose in 1979 and at one time or another held most of the offices in the Shamrock Club.
