Marcella ‘Marcy’ Mae (Brand) Mierau

Posted in Rushford Obituaries

Marcella ‘Marcy’ Mae (Brand) Mierau, 84, of Hart, died Tuesday, August 20, 2013, at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Home.



She was born on November 21, 1928, in Hart to Edward and Mabel (Bublitz) Brand.



Marcy grew up on a large diary farm at Hart, the oldest of 10 children. She attended the HartElementary School and St. John’sLutheranSchool.



On February 25, 1950, she married Melvin Mierau at St. John’sLutheranChurch of Hart where they made their home and raised their children.



Marcy worked for Winona Industries and later Rush Products in Rushford for 20 years where she was an Inspector. Her children felt this was the perfect job for her as she always had a critical eye when it came to house and yard chores.



She was a life long member of St. John’sLutheranChurch at Hart where she taught Sunday School and was the great-great granddaughter of the founding pastor, the Rev. Albert Brand.



She will be remembered for her great cooking and baking especially her apple pies, Christmas cookies, dill pickles, strawberry jam and chicken noodle soup. Marcy had a knack for tracking family history and sharing stories of the Hart Ridge.



Spending time with her grandkids, gardening, especially raising veggies for canning and freezing, cross word puzzles, dancing, guitar music, and reading her Bible brought her the most enjoyment.



Marcy is survived by her daughter, Kathi Vanyo of Glendale, AZ. and her son Chuck (Karen) Mierau of Rushford, five grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, one sister, Donna (Ken) Brietsprecher of Rushford, and her brothers, Roger (Betty) Brand of Rochester, Charles (JoAnn) Brand, John (Judy) Brand, and Larry (Joyce) Brand, all of Rushford, and one sister-in-law, Marilyn Brand. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Melvin, three sisters, Grace (Milford) Kahoun, Vivian (Eugene) Schultz, and baby Julie Brand, and one brother, Vernon Brand.



The funeral service will be at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 24, at St. John’sLutheranChurch in Hart, the Rev. Harold Hintzman officiated. Burial will be in the church cemetery. Visitation will be from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Friday, at Hoff Funeral and Cremation Service in Rushford and one hour prior to the service on Saturday at the church.
