Arsenia “Arcy” Mercier, 78, of Valrico, passed away February 11, 2019.
Arcy loved gardening, crabbing, and fishing. She was an avid collector of figurines. She took great pride that all of her children and her husband served in the military. Her greatest joy was talking about her children’s and grandchildren’s accomplishments. Arcy also enjoyed her annual barbeque and sharing her Filipino heritage through food.
Arcy was preceded in death by the love of her life, her husband, John. She is survived by her beloved children: son, John Jr. (Ellen); daughter, Arlene (Kirk) Pontow; son, Walter (Rita); and two grandchildren: Devin and Sean.
Private services will be held in Florida, after which Arcy will be laid to rest with her beloved husband at Cheltenham Veteran’s Cemetery in Maryland.
