Marcella was a very special person. I was honored to have know her most of my life and to have had the prilivege of getting to work with her at Best Butane Co. for over twenty years. Over the years she just became part of our family. I will greatly miss the smiling face and cheerful attitude she always exhibited even during the time of her critical illness. I know that I will see her once again as she knew Christ as her personal Savior! May God bless and comfort the family during this time of loss as only He can.

Marcella's constant smile and persistent determination to live life to it's fullest are the lessons I learned from her since joining Bartlett UMC. Her devotion to family and church are also life lessons which she leaves with us.
With sympathy to Marcella's extended family as you mourn and reminisce, then celebrate and share with each other her past and continued influence upon your lives.
Sincerely, Tami Baker
