Marcella Amalia Ellringer, 94 of Elba, died Tuesday, May 30, 2023 at Mayo Clinic Hospital, Rochester - St. Mary's Campus.
Marcella was born May 26, 1929 in La Crosse, WI to Edward and Amalia (Schroeder) Ulman. She graduated from St. Charles High School as Valedictorian and on May 8, 1948 she married Wayne Ellringer in Elba. The couple made their home near Elba, where they ran a small farm. Marcella also worked at Camera Art, the Turkey Plant in Altura and Meisch Brothers Electronics for a number of years.
She enjoyed puzzles and put a 1000 piece puzzle together and framed it for each of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her chocolate chip cookie recipe, with the extra love she added to the batter, could not be matched. She also enjoyed solving puzzles on Wheel of Fortune and word search puzzles.
