Marcella was my friend for 43 years. She was a very kind and gentle soul. When in her company, you felt loved and appreciated for who you were. She lived simply and was a true Franciscan. Marcella had a wicked sense of humor and could tell a joke with the best of them. She had a quick wit and could make you laugh until your sides hurt. How very much I will miss my dear friend. Rest In Peace, my friend!
