Aunt Marvell was such a wonderful Aunt to have. She was always pleasant to be with and she always made me smile. She had such a great sense of humor and beautiful smile. She could light up any room she entered. She was a beautiful person on the outside but also on the inside. I always looked forward to her phone calls as she would catch me up on what was going on with her and family but she was sincerely interested in what was going on with me and would give me very good advice whether I asked for it or not but I was always happy about getting her advice and views. I loved her so much and she did so much for Sondra, Eric, and myself as we grew up. She lived what the Bible says we should do on this earth and was a great example to all she came in contact with. She will be missed by all of us indeed.
Hometowne at Garland won’t be the same without Marcell. She was always so sweet and pleasant to be around and never had an unkind word to say about anyone. She was beautiful inside and out and I will miss her at bingo, potlucks, movies, working puzzles, and just hanging out by the pool at night watching the stars and planes flying over. Love and prayers to the family she leaves behind.
Marcell was a beautiful lady.I will miss her very much. It’s will always be me and you in the kitchen. Love you
Deepest Sympathy to all the family.
Aunt Marcell has spread joy and love to so many people. Her smile and kind words will be remembered and treasured forever. May God comfort all who will miss her dearly.
My Condolences to the family on the passing of Marcel— R I P
Aunt Marcell you will be dearly missed and always in my heart. I have a lot of good memories of her but I especially remember her and my mother playing around and splashing each other at the lake they had so much fun together. She was a true giver and she enjoyed life to fullest. She was always there to help when my mom needed her. And she was one of my dearest aunts. Aunt Marcell was a True woman of Christ. You are so much loved and will be so much missed. My sympathy goes out to Ronnie, Kent and Theresa.
I use to run into ever once in a while in Sherman when she was there checking on her parents. She was sweet and pretty woman. Know her family is missing her.
