Parker

Marcella Isabelle (Husman) Sunderland was born on Nov. 30, 1914, at Maurice, Iowa to Martin and Leona (Knewel) Husman. Marcella went to school in Canistota where she enjoyed playing basketball, graduating from Canistota High School in 1933.

On Feb. 25, 1936, she was united in marriage to Austin Isaac Sunderland at Sac City, Iowa. They made their home in Marion until 1969 when they moved to Parker.

To this union a son was born, Allen Jerome. Over the years Marcella enjoyed working as a waitress at Stanley Corner, Smith’s Café and for the Halverson at the Parker Bakery. She was a member of St. Christina Catholic Church, Neighborhood Club, enjoyed dancing at the VFW, playing cards, bingo and listening to the Minnesota Twins. For the last number of years, she has been a resident at the Canton Good Samaritan Home.

Marcella’s greatest joy was her grandkids; Kevin (Heidi) Sunderland, Hurley, Paula (Ted) Lingen, Jasper, Minn., David Sunderland, Hartford, and Mary (Mike) Eliason, Canton; her great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren and much more Lingen family members that called her grandma.

She was preceded in death by her husband Austin in 1977, son Allen in 1981, grandson Nathan in 2015 and three siblings, Leonard, Grace and Norbert.

A special thank you to her special friends Rick and Jan Opland who faithfully went to see her every Sunday and bring her communion while at Good Samaritan.

Funeral services were held Friday, Aug. 4 at St. Christina Catholic Church, Parker with burial at Rosehill Cemetery. Arrangements provided by Hofmeister Jones Funeral Home, Parker.
