Our beloved daughter, sister, and friend, gained her heavenly wings on May 4, 2021. She was born to parents Eugene Ward Jr. and Nora Thornton on January 21, 1968. Marcella was raised in San Antonio, Texas, and although she was born with a disability, she never let that deter her from having a normal life. She always had a happy spirit, and she enjoyed spending time with her family and listening to music. Marcella will be dearly missed and forever cherished in our hearts. She is preceded in death by her grandparents, and her father, Eugene Ward. She is survived by her loving mother, Nora Ward, and her only sister, Eugenia Ward; her nieces and nephews, and many other close relatives and friends. The family would like to give a special thank you to the staff of Foss Meadows Group Home for all of their care, support, and comfort given to Marcella throughout her years. A Visitation will begin on Saturday, May 15, 2021 from 9:00-11:00 AM at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, 1819 Nevada St., San Antonio, TX 78203. A Mass of the Resurrection will be held on Saturday, May 15, 2021, at 11:00 AM at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, 1819 Nevada St., San Antonio, TX 78203.
