ARLINGTON, TEXAS - Marcelle G. McCluney, 90, passed away Tuesday, April 24, 2012, peacefully surrounded by her loving family.

Marcelle was born and raised in Rector, Ark., on Dec. 5, 1921, to Grace and Harry Ellison. On Sept. 22, 1941, she married her loving husband Myron McCluney. They relocated to Warren, Mich., early in their marriage.

She was the proud and devoted mother of six children and a proud "Grandma" to 20 grandchildren that she adored. She also was a loyal and dedicated wife. She worked as a nurses' aide. She believed in helping others and doing the little things that brought happiness to those around her.

In 1976, Myron and Marcelle retired and moved to Sherman, Texas. There she spent her time doing the things she enjoyed, including fishing, crocheting, cooking, gardening and, most of all, spending time with her family.

Mom will be best remembered for her giving nature and concern for others. For those that knew her well, she will be remembered for her hospitality, spunk and love of independency. We love you and will miss you Mom!
