Marcell worked as a director of Day Cares for many years and when she wasn’t working with children, she shared an antique booth in Savoy, Texas with her sister in law Connie. She also made feather hat bands for cowboy hats.
She was very involved with The Shell Club, The Senior Center in Garland, and friends at Hometown Apartments. Marcell was an active member in the First Baptist Church of Garland for over 50 years.
