As a young woman, Marcelline accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior, and was baptized. She loved the Lord and served Him gladly. She and Ivan enjoyed visiting area churches with her family.
Marcelline was a beloved wife, devoted mother, grandmother, and cherished member of our family. She was a dedicated farmer’s wife, who selflessly cared for her family and also served as a compassionate caretaker for disabled children.

Marcelline and Ivan enjoyed traveling over many states and several countries over the years. They both enjoyed playing cards with family and friends. Marcelline also enjoyed preparing meals for her family and friends, you never walked away hungry after one of Marcelline’s wonderful meals.

Marcelline touched the lives of many with her kindness, generosity, and her unwavering love. Her warm smile and nurturing spirit brought comfort and joy to those who knew her. She will be remembered for her strength and resilience and her commitment to the ones she loved. Marcelline leaves behind a legacy of love and compassion that will forever inspire us all.
