I posted a picture of Marcella - and this tribute to her - on my Facebook page. I could scarcely believe how interested Marcella was in the world about her. I count it a blessing to have known her.

MY TRIBUTE: A kind and gentle soul, Marcella Dorn, 93 years old, has passed.

Leonard Splittstoesser has an uncle Roy Holst. Roy was married to Leonard's aunt Mildy (short for Mildred). Mildy was a very special person to me; unfortunately she died, perhaps seven years ago now. In the past several years, Roy has spent a lot of time with Marcella Dorn. At every family function Roy invited Leonard and I to, Marcella was there. I got to know Marcella very well. She was actually my oldest Facebook friend - and so enthusiastic! She actually enjoyed reading about my ventures and adventures and commented often. It is not an understatement to say I was in a front row of her fan club. I loved to get Marcella talking about her Swedish heritage. The writers of the beautiful obituary include this very important component of her life: "She [Marcella] traveled with vigor to many cool places. Germany, Hawaii, Alaska; all cherished vacations. She took a very special trip to Sweden across land and sea, to experience where her parents were born; [she went there] with her daughters three. Making so many precious memories, doing what she loved best, just being with her family, she felt blessed."

Here is the full obituary, I no doubt written by her three daughters, who traveled twice(?) with their beloved mother. Marcella was failing the last few months. A daughter from Denver had moved in with her to help; another daughter was close by. Marcella adored all three daughters.

She leaves us a memory we will never forget. She was so loved. You never left her home feeling hungry or if you needed a place to stay, she had beds ready. Plus, good conversation and visiting followed. I will always love you, my dear Aunt.
