Shirley M. Lecce

September 14, 1926 ~ November 21, 2022 (age 96)


Shirley M. Lecce, 96, of Montoursville, died at her residence on Nov. 21, 2022.

She was born Sept. 14, 1926, in Maxwell, Iowa, a daughter of the late Franklin and Lucy (Wheeler) Longnecker.

She was a librarian at Montour and Lyter Elementary schools, a position that she enjoyed immensely because it allowed her to share her love of reding with the children.  She was also a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Lecce; and five siblings, Bill, Marvin, Franklin, Vivian Rowles, and John.

Surviving are children, Carl (Jennifer), Lisa, and Gail Lecce; grandchildren, Robert and Lucia Lecce, and Daniel and William Hawkins; and siblings, Gail Morris, Joann Taylor, and Janie Crewse.

A funeral mass will be held at a later date.

The family would like to thank Dr. Muller and the staff at Family Practice and UPMC Home Healthcare for their kind care.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to LAPS, 630 Wildwood Blvd. Williamsport.

Arrangements are being handled by Spitler Funeral Home, Montoursville.
