Marcella Lou (Darrow) Williams, 82, of Wellsboro, PA, passed away November 10, 2022, at her home in the presence of her beloved daughters.
She was born August 1940 in her family home in West Burlington, PA, the youngest daughter of Leon "Tink" and Beatrice (Beach) Darrow.
Marcella graduated from Troy High School, Class of 1957. She completed her education at Jean Summers Business School in Elmira, NY.
On September 4, 1961, Marcella married her high school sweetheart and best friend, Thomas V. Williams, at St. John's Catholic Church in Troy, PA. They enjoyed 35 blessed years together until his passing in 1996.
Marcella worked at the Chemung County Sales Tax Office in Elmira. Later, she and Tom successfully owned and operated the United Farm Real Estate Agency in Wellsboro.
She was an incredible homemaker, seamstress, Girl Scout Leader, band parent, volunteer, devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Her passion was cooking, baking and serving family and friends with great love at her kitchen table where all were welcome. And, if we were lucky, she would delight us with her piano playing. Marcella demonstrated her generosity and genuine love through her tireless gift of self to others. She embodied unconditional love for which we are all grateful.
Marcella is survived by her daughters, Laura Williams of Elmira, NY, and Brenda (Steven) Brewster of Mansfield, PA, and two cherished grandsons, Bridger and Parker Brewster; brother-in-law, Robert F. Williams of Troy, PA, and sister-in-law, Doreen (Robert) Hurley of Dushore, PA; in addition to several treasured nieces and nephews, special friends and attentive caregivers.
Marcella was predeceased by her parents and husband, two sisters, Vera Harper, and Janet Stanton, and three brothers, Leon "Jake" Darrow, Carl Darrow, and Gerald Darrow.
