  1. We are sorry for your loss, but rejoice that Marcella is HOME.

    My memories of Marcella go back to the 40s when her parents, brothers and sister were a part of my father’s church in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. Marcella and her husband were a blessing to my parents for many years.

    May all of your hearts be comforted today. God Bless you.

    Mel and Verna Grams

    We are sorry for the families loss. Marcella is and was a beautiful lady. We will always remember her strength and the way she encouraged others around her. No longer in a wheel chair. She is now doing all the things she once enjoyed again. With the her Lord in Heaven. Her smile shines down on us all.
