Marcella Rose Henson

Marcella Rose Henson, age 85, Republic, Mo., beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, left us to dwell in the house of the Lord on Tuesday, August 5, 2014, at 12:15 a.m. after a long illness. The angels came for her at home in her own bed, surrounded by those who loved her.

Marcella is survived by her son, Brad Henson and wife, Becci; daughters, Daphne Henson, Belinda Henson, and Jennifer West and husband, Tony. She also left behind three grandsons, Brad Henson Jr. and wife Kat, Tim Henson, and Brennan West; one granddaughter, Christi Trimble and husband John; three great-grandsons, Chazz, Daylin, and Brendan Henson.

Marcella was preceded in death by her parents, Julius L. and Violet Marie Shaw, and is survived by sisters Patty Salsag and husband George, Jeannie Archer and husband Larry, Glenda Casto and husband Glen, Julia (Doodle) Petree; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great nephews.Mom spent her life making a home for her family and raising four children to love the Lord. She worked hard but always had a smile on her face. She always thought of others. She valued her relationships with God and her family above all else.

If a worthwhile and successful life is measured by leaving the world a better and brighter place, then Marcella had the most successful life. We will miss her smile, hugs, and laughter.

Funeral services will be at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, August 9, in Meadors Funeral Home, Republic, with Rev. Lee Young officiating. Burial will follow in Wade Chapel Cemetery. Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, August 8 in Meadors Funeral Home
