Marcella “Sally” Marie Thomson, age 73, passed away on Friday, September 7, 2018 at St. Elizabeth Hospital. She was born to the late Mark and Agnes (Bayerl) Fuehrer. Sally married her husband, Robert “Bob” Thomson on March 12, 1966. Sally graduated from PJ Jacob High School, UW-Stevens Point, and Midstate Technical College. Her career included work for Riverview Hospital and Nursing Home as a dietitian.
After retiring, Sally and Bob moved to Appleton to be closer to family. Sally was very active in her parish, including leading the Elizabeth Ministry Program, a leader in the local TOPS Chapter, and enjoyed her Red Hat Group. She became friends with everyone she met.
