Her mother passed away in 1959 and her father in 1971. Marcella and her father traveled the United States and Mexico.  Marcella also toured the Holy Lands and Ostfriesland, Germany.

Marcella served as secretary and organist for the Wellsburg Reformed Church for many years, and was a correspondent for the Wellsburg Herald, a section of the Grundy Register.  She loved to read, play cards, and enjoyed visiting with her friends.

Preceding Marcella in death were her parents, uncles, aunts, and cousins.

She is survived by a host of friends.
