Marcella Ann (Meyer) Gehringer
On October 23, 2017, Marcella Ann (Meyer) Gehringer, 70, peacefully passed away surrounded by loved ones at the Glendive Medical Center in Glendive.
Marcella “Sally” was born in Minot, N.D. on December 28, 1946 to Anton and Dorothy (Steier) Meyer. She grew up and attended school in Circle where she graduated from Circle High School in 1965. Sally met Charles (Chuck) Gehringer in Circle and they were married in 1969. They had two daughters, Shelley and Kristin. Chuck and Sally were married for 30 years until Chuck’s passing in 1999. They spent time living in Minot, Glendive, and the majority of their life in Circle.
Sally’s primary focus in life was loving, caring for and spending time with her immediate and extended family and friends. They treasured her for her no-nonsense yet sincere, blunt yet caring personality and approach toward life. She could always be relied upon for advice or for help in times of need. Sally’s cooking and baking were beloved by all. She worked proudly as a waitress for many years.
Sally was a devout parishioner of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church for most of her life. She was deeply honored to serve and help the church in many facets. Her deep faith and trust in God inspired many and she could always be depended upon for prayer.
Sally was preceded in death by her parents; best friend and husband, Chuck; brothers, Jackie, Joseph, Lee and John; sisters, Dorothy, Regina and Kay.
Sally is survived by her daughters, Shelley Gehringer of Billings and Kristin (Paul) Linson of Plymouth, Minn.; granddaughters, Kylee Gehringer of Circle, Bailee Kurk of Bozeman, Anabelle and Violet Linson of Plymouth, Minn.; sisters and brothers, Rosemary Bailey of Towner, N.D., Donald (Sondra) Meyer of Santa Rosa, Calif., Gerald Meyer of Great Falls, Gary (Bonnie) Meyer of Fort Peck, Patti Bradford of Minot, and Bob (Joan) Meyer of Wolf Point; and many nieces and nephews.
