My cousin Marcella and I grew up next door to each other on Poland Hill. We fought, played, and argued much as siblings do. In the summer we would often spend hours on the front porch playing canasta. She was a cheerleader for the Elston grade school basketball team when I first started playing. While I was in High School at Southwestern, she and Bud were wonderful friends who quite often were very gracious in listening to my woes. She had that delightfully infectious laugh that was hard not to join in on. Sharon and I share with so many others in expressing our sympathy with all who loved her. You are all in our prayers.

I knew Marcella from chemical engineering at Purdue where I was a grad student in the mid 2000s. She was always happy and smiling, liked to laugh and take time to chat. I recall she talked about her family often, beaming with pride and joy. My condolences to Marcella’s family, she was a great lady.

I can't imagine how you are all suffering. Everyone loved Marcella. I set with her through lots of wrestling matches and we always knew who she was rooting for. Even though I haven't seen her for several years when her name was mentioned in a crowd it always brought a smile to my face. Such a great family all of you. Bud I know you'll be totally lost but I know sweet Tina and the boys will be there for you. sending lots of hugs and prayers for all of you. Bob and Linda Corbin

Aunt Marcella’s love for her family was unparalleled. Walking into the Maynard house as a child was like walking into a huge hug full of family, food, and love. She had a larger than life personality that will never fade for the people whose lives she has touched. While I wish that I could be there with you all to celebrate her life and put her to rest, there is a part of me that is relieved that I can continue imagining her singing without abandon in church while Grandma Carol plays the organ. To acknowledge such a bright light being dimmed is unimaginable. I’m happy that her pain and suffering is over and take comfort that her love and light live on in all of us.

I'd like to leave a remembrance, for anyone who was curious what she was like with her Grandkids and Great-Grandkids, she loved all of us no matter what, she was one of the sweetest, kind-hearted, loving Mamaw I could ask for. When I was little she would rock me to sleep and sing "This little light of mine" or "I will make you fishers of men" and that will always stick with me forever, she was there for all of my sporting events and even when she was battling cancer she was still there, she is one of my biggest heroes, she meant everything to Papaw and it hurts to know that he is hurting and she is gone. I remember all of the holidays we would spend together and how much my Grand parents got and had for us all of the time, all of the big Easter get togethers and Christmas was always a holiday we would spend together. Every Sunday, my Father (Kevin), would always be out at my Grand Parents house helping fix or take care of things that they cannot do, I was out helping when I could and I loved being there with Mamaw & Papaw, I remember all of the camping trips and s'mores we made with Mamaw. There really is a lot that I could think of to remember her by and I am so grateful for the time I had with her, she got to see my kids and they got to see her, I thank the Lord for that precious time. She loved all of her family and friends and I know that she is up in heaven with Great Grandma Corwin and she is smiling down on ALL of us, may she always spread her light wherever you may be, no matter how dark the day is, she will light your way. We love you Mamaw, May you rest in peace, until I see you again. Your loving Grandson, Cameron
