Marvel and Arnulf were a great team working on their farm in Holmes Twp. raising crops and livestock as well as putting out large gardens each year. Marvel was highly adept at processing and canning the garden vegetables as well as cherries from the Pickett’s Cherry Farm and freezing fish from the Sandusky Fish Market. She also enjoyed keeping the farmstead landscaping looking fresh-mowed and well decorated with growing flowers and shrubs. She was also an avid painter of the farm buildings always keeping them looking their best.
Besides being a devoted wife, Marvel was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She will be missed and remembered by all her family and friends.
