Let the memory of Marcella be with us forever

Marcella Marie Rennerfeldt was born on February 3, 1928 to Leona Wolken in West Point.  Sally was raised by her mother, Leona, and stepfather, Clifford Davis, and graduated from Guardian Angels in 1945. On September 12, 1950, Sally married Harland Rennerfeldt at St. Mary’s Catholic Church.  She was a wonderful homemaker and mother to their four children.  At the age of 65, Sally began her iconic 22 year employment at McDonald’s where she was an original employee.  Her cheerful face and warm heart will be missed by every customer.

Sally was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Guild, and spearheaded St. Mary’s Bingo.  She loved card games, bingo, and going to the casino.  Most of all, Sally relished the time she spent with her family. 

Sally is survived by her son Gary (Anna) Rennerfeldt of Dakota Dunes, SD; daughters Diane (Greg) Wermers of Fremont, NE, Donna (Gene “Joe”) Murphy of Brentwood, CA, and Deb (Mike) Dreher of Norfolk; grandchildren Gina (Chad) Taylor, Lisa (Zak) Klein, Kim Hadcock, Mark Hadcock, Kari (Tom) Ramseth, Amy (Drew) Gaschler, Tommy Murphy, Heather Rennerfeldt, Michael Rennerfeldt, Matt Dreher, Emily Dreher, and Jeremy Dreher; ten great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her parents and husband, Harland, in 2012.

"Grandma I am missing you so much! I am glad your not suffering anymore it's just hard living everyday without you. I miss you coming to stay at moms and spending so much time with you. Bridget's graduation wasn't the same without you there and celebrating all the kid's birthday's was really hard without you. I miss you calling me and asking for help & I miss calling you to see how your doing. We talked for along time on the phone everytime we talked and I miss our conversations so much. It's still hard to believe that you are gone but I know that you are with grandpa which is where you've wanted to be since the day he passed away. I miss him so much too! Mom is having a really hard time & I don't know how to help her because I'm having a hard time with this also. She misses your nightly phone calls, she misses coming up & cleaning & taking you to get your weekly groceries & your medicine or coming and picking you up for a doctors appointment. She feels so alone right now & I can't help her! We all love & miss you more than you will ever know grandma & you were the best grandma that anybody could ask for. I will always carry your love around in my heart grandma & there won't ever be a day that I won't think about you and miss you! I love you!

                                                                       Your Grandaughter,
