  1. I attended Marcial’s funeral this morning with Micheal Roberts. Micheal was my assistant Supt. when we came to #321 in 1981. I had hoped to be able to say something about Marcial this morning, but the opportunity was not provided. SOOOO since I wanted everyone to hear it anyway, here goes. When we came in ’81 Marcial was Treasurer and Annie Lasswell was Clerk. They were welcoming and willing to make changes. If it wasnt a good idea, they told me. I was blessed to have them as my guide and mentor! Thru the years we were “family”. We discussed our mutual triumphs and suffered our losses together in confidence. Marcial suffered more than she deserved! A story I wanted to tell was the fact that Annie and Marcial could be doing their jobs, telling each other a story—at the same time—and fully understanding what each other said! They were a team! WE were a team!
    Micheal was going to tell a story too! But since he isnt a facebooker I will tell it for him. When we would talk business with Marcial she had a habit of pushing up her glasses on her nose—with her middle finger. We always told ourselves that she gave us the finger every day and we told ourselves it wasn’t intentional—but sometimes I wondered. We miss those times and will always remember. Just wanted everyone and the family to know how much she contributed to our school district!

    • Thank you for sharing George!
      I do wish I had the chance to say hello this morning and to thank you for coming! I know she truly enjoyed her career at #321, what a wonderful work family she had.


  2. Cindy, Richard & Family, my prayers are with you during this time of loss. I have so many great memories of Marcial throughout my life and I am so very blessed to have had her as an Aunt. I know she is in a better place and what joy she must feel to be reunited in Heaven with Elmer and Terry. God Bless. Sending Love & Prayers.

  3. Dear Cindy & family,
    I was Blessed in knowing Your Mother and Father. When I had a painting to do of horses for a lady to surprise for her husband, your Dad brought me his horse magazines so I could get the muscle painted right on the horses. Your Mother shared recipes with me when I was in the Post Office. Your Dad came over nearly every afternoon to visit. You are so lucky to have had two of the best people in your lives. God Bless you. Love & Prayers
    Pauline & Joe Conley

  7. I was always amazed at how Marcial and Annie could talk to each other about different things—at the same time and understand exactly what was said!! I was fortunate to have her.

  8. Cindy, my prayers are with you during this time of loss. Your mother was so kind and welcoming when I started attending church in Rossville. Your parents both hold a special place in my heart. What a joyous reunion Heaven is witnessing now!
