In Memorium

It is with heavy hearts we wish to tell you that one of our cherished and dear phriends,

and a phlock member for many years, has passed away.  Marcia Bixby, you will be sadly

missed by so many.  I am still at a loss for the right words at this moment.  This has been

a difficult few weeks for so many of us and words just can not truly express emotions.

Marcia was an honest, kind-hearted, hard working soul to all her knew her. We will miss

you dearly, so sorry and saddened you were taken from us so soon.  Please hug someone today.

Heavy hearted,

President Mac

attending Sharon General Hospital in PA. After moving to Massachusetts, she received her Bachelor

of Science degree in nursing from Emmanuel College. She later received her Master of Science in

Nursing from the University of Massachusetts, where she studied to become a Critical Care Clinical

Nursing Specialist. She received many accolades during her career. She assisted in writing nursing textbooks, articles, lectures, presented at conferences and consulted for many. She was as comfortable teaching at the bedside as she was in front of a lecture hall. Marcia was the quintessential nurse, it defined who she was. Marcia prided herself on being the best patient advocate she could be. 

During her career, she took positions as a travel nurse, worked at Tufts Medical Center, and her last active position was with Beth Israel Lahey.

She was an active member of the PHCOEM (Parrot Head Club of Eastern Mass), “Party with a Purpose”, and was proud of all the charities they supported; Special Olympics, Joe Andruzzi Foundation, Wreaths Across America and Operation Troop Support, to name a few. She loved her home and loved having people over. She especially loved baking cookies during any holiday and shared that love with generations of family and friends. She would do anything for you and was a wonderful person. She will be greatly missed by many. She was the sister of Heather Ursini of Palm Harbor, FL, Pricilla Hennessey of Portland, ME, Charles Bixby of Houston, TX, Pamela Bollis of Meadville, PA, Allison Rhoades of Meadville, PA and the late Paul Bixby, George Bixby, and Valerie (Bixby) Everett.

July 2023 ~ It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Michael Crowley, a cherished Uncle,

brother, and friend who left this world at the age of 59 due to complications from a lifelong battle with

Type I diabetes. Michael’s journey was filled with resilience and courage and his memory will forever remain

etched in our hearts. Born March 20, 1964, Michael was a kind and selfless person. He grew up in Brockton,

MA graduating from St. Casimir School and South Eastern Regional Vocational Technical High School. His

career spanned 40 years, starting as a mover in the family business of Crowley Moving and Storage and then

becoming a dedicated employee for Jordan Marsh/Macy’s, Dennis East, and Pottery Barn in the Shipping and

Receiving departments. Michael possessed an unwavering spirit that shone through even in the face of adversity.

He was an avid fan of all Boston sports teams, a dedicated parishioner at Christ the King Parish, a member of

the Parrot Head Club of Eastern Massachusetts, a volunteer with the Special Olympics, and he never missed a

Cotuit Kettleers home game. Most important to Michael, however, was his family. He took great joy in celebrating

holidays, always selecting and wrapping the perfect gifts for the children, and he treasured spending time all

together. He is survived by his parents, Maryann and Jim Crowley of Cotuit, three brothers (James, John, and

Matthew), a sister (Elizabeth), and many nieces and nephews. Michael’s spirit will live on through the lives he touched.

May he rest in eternal peace; forever remembered, forever missed.
