Marcia Pavlica Obituary


Dear Bx Community Board Area Members and friends:                                       

One of our very active community members has passed this morning.

Marcia Pavlica of Country Club suffered with Dementia for years before refusing food and  getting COVID while fading away.

Marcia Anne Johnson was born in Brooklyn, raised in Missouri, lived in Washington Heights while she taught  elementary bilingual French in Manhattan (The Fleming School 1964-1969). During that time she met Richard Pavlica (an Aerospace Systems student at Iona from Waterbury Ave.). They were married in 1966 at our local Tardis (Villa Barone Manor). After Richards Parents died 1975 Marcia and Richard moved into their home on Waterbury Ave.  Marcia and her husband Richard served our community throughout their married lives. First as members of Country Club Civic then as presidents for alternating years. They were both very active at St. Benedicts and Prov. Rest Nursing Home. This couple was “a force to be reckoned with”. Attending City Wide meetings bringing back ways that other communities protected their Infrastructure, Quality of Life, Park Space and Waterways expanded the strength of their group.

For many years they walked the Country Club/Spencer Estates streets  “Supervising” the much needed sewer construction which they were an important part of.

Marcia wrote a weekly column for the Bx Times Reporter. Her closing line was “Your home extends beyond your fence line”. She also wrote a CCC newsletter named “The Chatter” which closed with the next meeting date and “the coffee will be perking”.

Marcia and Richard were also very involved with their community and St. Josephs Church surrounding their country home in Wurtsboro (Sullivan County). They renovated a small cabin type home to suit their needs. They canoed, hiked and hunted together (on weekends) for years. Their Phillipsport Community Center was a second home to them. Marcia started a scholarship fund at Richards Death through this venue.

Marcia worked very hard along with her husband Richard at the Country Club Civic Association to help the whole community.  She was a good neighbor who lived across the street and 5 houses down the block.  Being a year younger I would tease her that she was my kid sister when I would visit her at Providence Rest Nursing Home.   She would laugh and shake her head yes and smile.  I will miss her, rest in peace my friend, Cathy Praino
