Marcella E Buffman

 

Marcella E. Buffman 97 of Central Lake passed away peacefully, April 4, 2023 at Munson Medical Center.  She was born December 13, 1925 at home in Ellsworth, the daughter on Earl and Dorinda (Folsom) DeForest.

 

   Marcella lived a long, happy, and prosperous life.  She enjoyed crafting of all kinds, spending time with her friends, and playing beautiful music on the organ.  She enjoyed knitting, playing cards, and gardening too.  If you knew Marcella you knew she loved to cook and she shared her cooking with everyone!  She’d put on a full meal and you’d never leave hungry!  Marcella’s family was her pride and joy and she loved the visits she’d get from them and when they stopped to see her.  She was especially happy when Diane moved back home to live with her.  They enjoyed all sorts of new adventures, crafts, and built a town Fairy Garden for all the children to enjoy.

 

   On December 23, 1948 in Flint she married Howard S. Buffman.
