Aunt Mary Ella was one of those rare individuals that would brighten the day of anyone she came in contact with. She always had a radiant smile on her face and such a brilliant sparkle in her eyes , one could never doubt the love she had in her heart. We will miss Mary Ella but can take comfort that she is rejoicing in heaven! ( Uncle Bob, Dad (Jim) and her are most likely singing together at this moment!) I love you Aunt Mary Ella, Jerry Mishler

I am the oldest of Bob and Ann Mishler's kids. Mary Ella was my dad's youngest sister, and as a result, my aunt. She seemed more like one of my cousins since she was only a year and a half older and lived right beside us. We all know how beautiful her singing was and in high school she was just as talented on the debate team coached by her mother, Mary (my grandma). When I went off the college, she gave my a dictionary that she had won at a debate. I still have that book, and it will always remind me of her kindness and love. I will always remember her goodness and caring. I'm sure she has been visiting with Denny, her parents, my mom and dad, and Uncle Jim and Uncle Don as soon as she arrived in heaven. Rest in peace! Your loving nephew, Robert (Joe) Mishler, Jr.

I always enjoyed sitting and talking to Mary. She was always such a beautiful ray of sunshine! May God Bless her family.

Sitting around with our high school gang at Michlers house listening to the Smothers Brothers on the record player and laughing is still a great memory. I recall Mary Ellas delightful laugh. She sang at our wedding which was 48 years ago yesterday.

Mary Ellens faith is a legacy she leaves with all who knew her. Her smile was constant. Her voice a blessing.. Her gentle spirit showed the love of Jesus to us all. I picture her now singing praises to our Lord beside her adoring husband.
