Obituary

Marcella Therese Johnson was born June 22, 1933 in Heufeldmühle, Germany to Margarethe and Sebastian Salminger, Marcella is survived by her beloved husband of 60 years, Frank of Melbourne, Fla.; children Elizabeth of Texas; Edward and Beverly of Melbourne; Betty and Heinz of Germany; and Denise and Scott of Miami. She’s also survived by nine grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren, sisters Marille and Hertha of Germany and Renate of Switzerland and many nieces, nephews and cousins. She’s predeceased by brothers Heini and Roman and sister Meritta. After finishing school at the age of 15, Marcella learned her trade as a tailor. In 1957, she emigrated to the U.S., working as a seamstress in Rantoul, Ill with her childhood best friend. It was there she met the love of her life, an Air Force SSGT. Six weeks later, they married on Oct. 25, 1958. Frank retired from the service in 1970 and the family settled in Miami. Frank and Marcella were involved in the German American Social Club of Greater Miami where she was “First Lady” for seven years. Hurricane Andrew facilitated their move to Melbourne.

Dear Family,
I send my sincere condolences for your loss. There are comforting promises in the Bible that the time is coming when “all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Jesus’] voice and come out.” (John 5:28,29) Our Loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah God has also promised that “he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more” (Revelation 21:4) May it comfort you and strengthen you to reflect on God’s promises to bring back to life your dear loved one to a beautified earth where she can be reunited with her family, and never have to get sick and die, ever again. (Psalm 37:11,29; Isaiah 33:24)

My condolences to the family. Hearing the news of her passing brought back so many memories of moving into our new house on 117 Ave and getting to know everyone. Mrs. Johnson as a nice lady and good neighbor. I remember when the Herald did an article featuring her making a German pastry. I was young and it made me think of her as a celebrity. May God bless you all during this sad time.
