Born on March 31, 1919, in Buh Township, Morrison County, Minnesota, Marcella was the daughter of the late John and Katerine (Servaty) Ross. She attended a country school and grew into a compassionate and caring woman. On October 24, 1939, Marcella exchanged vows with her beloved August George Boser, and together, they built a life filled with love, laughter, and six beautiful children, Earl, Donald, Dennis, Duane, Glenn, and Carol.
Marcella embraced every role in her life with grace and devotion. While raising her family, she also worked as a home health aide for Morrison County. She touched the lives of many with her kind and nurturing nature. Marcella had a zest for life and enjoyed various hobbies, including quilting, playing bingo and cards, shopping, trips to the casino, gardening, and traveling. She found comfort in her faith as an active member of St. John's Nepomuk Catholic Church and the Christian Mothers.
Marcella will forever be remembered for her unwavering love and dedication to her family. She leaves a lasting impact on generations to come. She is survived by her loving children, Earl (Karen) Boser of Hillman, Donald (Karen) Boser of Hillman, Dennis (Gerri) Boser of Pierz, Carol (Jim) Zapzalka of Harding, Duane (Joann) Boser of Hillman, and Glenn (Lori) Boser of Pierz.
