Micik was born Sept. 16, 1923, in Greenwich to Angelina Capuano and Dominick Magarone. She lived in Chickahominy most of her life before moving to Byram in 1980. Shortly after World War II, she met John Micik, a private first class in the Army's 818th Tank Destroyer Battalion.
They married May 17, 1947, at St. Roch's Church and recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary. During World War II, Micik worked at S&K in Port Chester, making uniforms for soldiers. She also worked at Life Savers and the Ruwe Pencil Factory.
