Marcella A. (aka Sally) Wagner, of Hartford, passed away on October 16, 2022 at the age of 78 years. She was born on September 1, 1944 in Howard, South Dakota, the daughter of Herman Holvick and Iona (nee Callis) Holvick. Sally was a strong, caring, loving person. Her caring nature led her to Cedar Community where she was a CNA until her retirement. She loved her family and always put aside her needs to care for others. She will deeply be missed by not only her family, but by those who have crossed her path. This includes her precious cat, Sasha, whom Sally fell in love with the minute she laid eyes on her, and knew she had to rescue. Marcella is survived by her daughters Marcia (David) Holtman and Annette (Paul) Schwartz, her son Donald Wagner, her grandchildren Tiffanie Laubenheimer, Jessica (Leland II) Rogers, Brianna Laubenheimer, Shantelle (Scot Hale) Laubenheimer, Bradlee Holtman, Dustin (Sarah Kaul) Wagner, Deric Schwartz, Dylan (Victoria Riehle (Owen)) Schwartz, by her great-grandchildren Kayda and Ahbriel Flitsch, Xavier and Greyson LeBron, Leland III (Angel Carbon) and Loghin Rogers, Nevaeh and Dominic Nigl, and Jesse Minigh, by her sister Carol Holvick, by her best friend of 71 years, Rosemary Heder, and by other relatives and friends.
