    One of the most wonderful people I have had the joy knowing.
    She was bright, funny and very devoted to her God.

    She was so funny sometimes she was the bright spot in my day.
    No doubt she is making our Lord laugh this very moment.

    My heart is broken, I will never forget her. She was the best!

    I am a former coworker of Marcella and had the pleasure of sharing many work days with her at WEA Mfg. Customer Service. Although our paths haven’t crossed in a few years, she left an indelible imprint on my funny bone. She was a wonderful, bright person and my deepest condolences go out to all of her family and friends. God Bless!
