Mrs. Marcia Healy
This is Mrs. Healy’s thirteenth year as St. Ambrose School librarian, following three years as the kindergarten aide. She was born in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, and received her Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Virginia. She taught second and third grades for eight years in Albemarle County, Virginia. When her sons were born, she retired and was a regular room mother and library volunteer through their elementary school careers.
Mrs. Healy and her husband of 38 years have been St. Ambrose parishioners for 28 years. Their older son is an engineer at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab. The younger son is working on a doctorate degree at Eastern Kentucky University while working in sports counseling at the university. He is allowing his parents to take care of his corgi puppy Foxy while he is living in Kentucky.
Mrs. Healy’s love for children’s literature led her to the St. Ambrose library. She read to her boys daily when they were young, and is passionate about the importance of parents sharing books with their children every day. Now she enjoys reading to her grandson!
