    To the Family of Marcella Weber. We would go to the family reunions in Okawville and she was there and the rest of the family. That was always a good time. It was good seeing everyone and missing all the good time we had together, riding the bicycles and playing softball. She will be greatly missed. My mom Matilda Hoelscher also gives her condolence.
