Marcelle Martha (Raggi) Garvey

December 13, 1925 ~ November 18, 2021 (age 95)


Marcelle M Garvey passed peacefully at home at the age of 95 on November 18, 2021. She is survived by four daughters, Ann (Al), Christine (Gary), Sunny, Frances (Steve)…four Grandsons, Mark, Matt (Nicole), Dylan (Marley) & Christopher (Logan)…two Great Grandchildren, Justin & Morgan.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Luigi & Margaret Raggi & her youngest daughter Maureen (Dave).

Marcelle was born 12/13/25 in Marseille, France & immigrated to this country with her parents of Italian descent in 1929. New York City/New Jersy would be home for many years.

Throughout her life she kept busy…she was a bowler, a reader of many books (which she kept), crocheter of many blankets for many kids, needlepoint queen & was known for all the good food she shared.

Her original move to Alta Vista, VA & then Greensboro, North Carolina was a good one & everyone eventually followed her here. She was a true historian of New York City. A life full of stories & memories. She worked for American Express for 17 years and was loyal to that card & the friendships from that time.

Love & Peace
