Obituary of Elizabeth Macey

On Tuesday evening, January 24th, 2023 Elizabeth “Betty” Jane (Runge) Macey passed away. She was born on February 16, 1928 in McKeesport, PA. She was an excellent seamstress. She could sew anything, but don’t ever ask her to fix a zipper. Her days were spent watching Tennis, Girls Softball and her absolute favorite, Major League Baseball. She enjoyed going shopping and spending time with her great and great-great grandchildren. Her favorite saying was “Everything Happens for a Reason”.


She was preceded in death by her parents Joseph and Rose Sherbo Runge, her sister Dorothy Runge Bonner, her husband of 77 years Rudolph Joseph Macey, her son Paul Macey, and her great-grandson Mark Sandler. She is survived by her half-brother James Gorring (Mary Lou); her daughter Gloria Jean Macey Stiltner (Roy); her granddaughter and recent caretaker Laura Ann Stiltner Cleesen (Larry); her great-grandchildren Amber, Larry Jr., and Ashley; great-great-grandchildren Courtni, Camden, Treyce, Kolt and Wrenley; and a niece and nephew.
