Marcella Ruth O'Brien
Marcella Ruth O'Brien, age 93, of Creve Coeur, Missouri passed away peacefully July 29, 2021. Marcella was born May 14, 1928 to Samuel M. and Edith R. Cook (nee: Ilberry). Both parents preceded her in death, as well as her devoted husband, Gene O'Brien, brother, Sam Cook, sister, Sherry Lowe and grandson, Daniel O’Brien.
She is survived by; her three children: Kevin (Amy) O'Brien, Mike O'Brien, and Patti (Serge) Bellassai; her 9 grandchildren: Kelsey, Courtney, Patrick, Molly, Katie, Nikki, Kelly, Joel & Logan; seven great-grandchildren and numerous other loved ones.
Marcella was a member of St. Richard’s Catholic Church while raising a family, then later joined her son at Kirkwood Road Christian Church for many years. Marcella was a loving wife, devoted mother and good friend to many. She was always well put together and entertained beautifully. She enjoyed playing bridge, cooking large meals for her family, and sewing as a hobby. Marcella truly enjoyed her grandchildren, and spoiled them lavishly whenever she could.
She spent the last ten years of her life at Cape Albeon assisted living. We thank the staff there for their gracious and loving care.
Marcella had a sweet dog named Maggie that was her constant companion for many years in the autumn of her life. With that in mind, memorials may be made to: Humane Society of Missouri.
