Marcella, Marcia, was an inspiring mother, caring wife and dedicated grandmother. We all remember Marcia’s sassy, fighting spirit, and stubborn but loyal soul. Those emotions and feelings came from a woman who loved her family with all of her heart. She would have done anything for us, and she always did. Without her, there will be a huge hole left in our family.

Marcella is survived by her daughters Cynthia (Roger) Jones, Amy (Keith) Soos and Michelle Carvajal; grandchildren Olivia Jones; Vanessa and Daisy Soos; and Javier and Natalia Carvajal.

She is preceded in death by her husband Frank L. Grzes, her father Casmir Kemnetz, her mother Evelyn Kemnetz and her sister Cecilia Kemnetz
