Marcella McKinley Obituary
Marcella McKinley "Gammy" passed away peacefully at age 103, at home where she resided with her son and daughter-in-law in Chandler, Arizona. She was born in Garrett, Indiana, to Martin and Cletus Miller. She married George McKinley and they had a son, Mike. They resided in Auburn, Indiana, before transferring in 1960 with the Auburn Rubber Company to Deming, New Mexico. Marci worked at the Ramada Inn as a hostess for many years and then later retired as a teller from Mimbres Valley Bank. She was known as "Gammy" to everyone who knew and loved her. She attended many sporting events, dance recitals and many family activities including backyard Wiffle Ball games with all the grandkids and great-grandkids.

She is survived by her son, Mike McKinley, and daughter-in-law, Cathy McKinley, six grandchildren, Kim Gutierrez (Dan), Lauri Avalos (Joe), Rob Chipperfield (Samantha), Michael McKinley (Jennifer), Daniel McKinley (Amber), Ryan McKinley (Abby), 17 great grandchildren, and multiple nieces and nephews. Gammy was the matriarch of her family. She had a humorous, witty personality and we will all miss her funny stories. Her husband, George McKinley, and siblings Martin, Evelyn and Mildred, all of Indiana, preceded her in death.
