Marsha Bell

Obituary of Marsha Lynn Bell

Marsha Lynn Dozier was born on January 17, 1976, in Monroe, Michigan.   She was born from the union of Kenneth Wayne Dozier and Vicella (Goss) Dozier.

 

Marsha was kind and thoughtful. She was a natural caregiver.   Above anything, she loved her family, and often put the needs of loved ones ahead of her own.   Marsha was a fabulous cook often preparing her specialities southern fried dishes, cabbage rolls, and fried green tomatoes, much to her diner’s delight.   She looked forward to the family gathering around the table to talk, laugh, have beer, listen to music and share a meal. After dinner everyone enjoyed karaoke to mostly Motown and country tunes. She always made sure that no one left her home hungry.

 

Even though she had no formal training, she was willing to serve as a home care aide on many occasions for those that needed assistance.  Marsha could always be seen with someone’s baby in tow. She treasured anytime she spent with the little ones.  She was also extremely close to her sister Loreida, sharing the same date of birth one year apart.  The dynamic duo could often be seen together doing a little bit of anything and everything. 

                                                                                                                                                             

Marsha loved music with her favorite genre being country and her favorite artists being stars Hank Williams Jr., George Jones, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Vern Godsin.
