I would like to express my deepest and heartfelt condolences to the family of Marvel Harmel. I am truly sorry for the lost that your family is feeling. Experiencing the lost of a beloved family member is one of the hardest experience that any of us can go thru. And because of that my thoughts and prayers are with your family. During this extremly difficult time, please turn to God for comfort and support. He promise to give your family the strength needed in order to endure this great lost. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) Something else that can bring your family comfort is cherishing the wonderful memories that you have of Ms. Marvel. These precious memories will console the family in the day's ahead.

Elmer and Marvell were neighbors across the street from us in Tipton for about 18 years and they were the best neighbors a person could ask for. They were friendly, caring, always upbeat and smiling. After we moved away, our daughter would still have occasion to visit Tipton and would stop in to say hi to them. Rest In Peace together and our condolences to the family.

Marvel was a true example of a "Lady". She was always so gracious and sweet. She answered many of my questions over the years at the extension office. Will miss her smile. Thoughts and prayers for the family!
