    I lived around the corner from her for over 10 years. I stopped by her house one time and she was in the garage welding up the frame on the hot rod. She was a trailblazer! There was standing room only at her memorial service, which says it all. She was a great lady!

    So glad to be counted among her many friends and to have had the pleasure of working with her. She lived her life big. Viajar con los Dioses, querida amiga.

    I worked with Marcella at the Correctional Training Center. She was very supportive of the custody staff there and was quick to fix any maintenance problems we encountered. She was a beautiful soul and I am so sad she’s no longer with us. My condolences to her family.

    I like so many will miss you tremendously. The smile, jokes, helpfulness, caring, work ethic, integrity and the aura you emitted touched those who know you. Words cannot express the sadness those of us at Plant Operations feel with your passing. Heavens a bit brighter now.

      A beautiful, strong, hardworking lady. I only knew Marcella for a short time. She brought me a survivors bracelet after my motorcycle accident. I was surprised by her kindness. I will never forget Marcella.
