Our beloved Italian mama, Concetta “Connie” R. Lacey of Spokane, WA, passed away peacefully after suffering from dementia for many years on May 5, 2022 at Avalon Care Center. Concetta was born and raised in Nanticoke, PA where she worked part time as a beautician and bookkeeper for her late husband's wholesale hardware business. She and her husband moved to Southern California in 1978 and then to Reno, Nevada in 1999. Her husband, John “Jack” P. Lacey died in Reno in 2008. Connie then moved to Spokane to be closer to her daughter.
Her favorite pastime was traveling and she often bragged that she had traveled on more than 30 cruise ships throughout her lifetime. In addition to her husband, she is preceded in death by her parents, Benjamin and Mary Falconieri and her brother, Anthony Falconieri. She is survived by her 3 children Brenda Lacey-Scholze (Joseph Scholze) of Spokane, WA; John Lacey (Melissa Lee Sennatt Lacey) of Carlsbad, CA; and Jacqueline Fraser (David Fraser) of Salida, CA; her sister, Linda Toth, of Eastvale, CA; and her sister-in-law and best friend, Patricia Januszeski, of Nanticoke, PA. In addition, Concetta leaves behind nine grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Connie’s family meant the world to her and being amongst her children and their families was one of her greatest joys. The family would like to thank the staff at Avalon Care Center at Northpointe for the loving care they provided to our mother.
