Marcella was such a fireball on the ranch when we purchased it in 1968. She could outwork any hired man and she knew every facet of the ranching operation. Her record keeping was miraculous and made taking over the operation much easier for me. She had a diary of everything that was done and needed done; cattle records that gave history of every calf born; and inventory of every serial number of machines and every bolt and nail in the shop. We were so very honored that she returned to attend our Charolais Bull Sale a few years back. What a treasure she was and what great vision she had for this ranch, tho her eyesight was compromised. The ranch is now called Valley View Charolais Ranch, but the LJ Quarter Circle will always be remembered by the brand she placed on every machine and every post and pole on the ranch. My hat's off to a great lady.
