Marcella loved the visits form her children and grandchildren, a newborn great-grandson, and long-time neighbors. Before taking a turn for the worse, she enjoyed a meal of potato soup, and a few hours of watching Cincinnati Reds baseball, which she loved all her life. Her final words were “I Love You.” Marcella worked at Circle Plastics for several years, and at Columbus Industries until retirement. She loved working and missed it every day. She was well known for her speed and efficiency in getting the job done. Outside of work, she enjoyed her family, making the best fried chicken and homemade noodles, and playing baseball, which she did as a teen at Circleville High School. She was preceded in death by her parents, two sisters Elenore Jean Rutter and Rosella Congrove, her husband, Wilson “Roy” Puckett, daughters Zona Coleman and Vicki Ackley, and great granddaughters Jennifer Coleman and Stephanie Tackett.
