Marcy Escobar went to meet her Lord and Savior on July 6, 2021. She was 74 years old. Marcy was born in Mexico on July 6, 1947, to Martiniano and Sylveria (Escamilla) Rodriquez.

On December 3, 1966, she married Albert Escobar, the love of her life. They made their home in Ennis, where Marcy was a lifelong member of St. John Nepomucene Catholic Church. Marcy and Albert lived in many places including Indiana, North Carolina, California and Florida, but Ennis was always their home.

Marcy worked for many years as a commercial seamstress and continued to sew for family and friends after her retirement. She prided herself in making masks for anyone and everyone during the pandemic. The job she loved the most was making a happy, loving home for her family. Marcy was an amazing cook and no one ever left her table hungry or without a plate to take home. She loved life and never missed a chance to help a stranger. Marcy enjoyed playing bingo, traveling, dancing, visiting friends and family, and the occasional trip to the casino.

She was a devoted wife of 54 years to Albert, a loving mother to Cilia and Gilbert and her grandchildren: Mia, Tate and Marcelina were her greatest joy.
