Marcella A. Ryan

Marcella A. (Kidd) Ryan, aged 86 years, 5 months, and 15 days, passed away peacefully, while surrounded by family, on Friday, December 11, 2020 in Elizabethtown. Kentucky.

Funeral services will be conducted on Tuesday, December 15, 2020 at 2:00pm EST in the chapel of the Pine Knot Funeral Home with Bro. William Kilby officiating. Visitation will be at the funeral home on Tuesday, December 15, 2020 from 12:00pm until the funeral hour. Burial will follow the services and will be in the T. Chitwood Cemetery in Pine Knot, Kentucky.

Marcella was the widow of Albert J. Ryan. She was born on June 26, 1934 in McCreary County, Kentucky to the late Jessie Earl Kidd and Madge Lee Stephens. She was a member at the East Pine Knot Tabernacle Church of God, which is a part of the General Assembly Church of God.  Marcella enjoyed quilting, embroidery, crocheting, ceramics, and spending time with her family. She cared deeply for her family, and she knew exactly how to keep her grandchildren in line, as she told them that if they got around the pond without an adult “the fish would come out and bite their toes” or that they weren’t allowed in the basement alone because “her porcelain dolls would get them”.

She is preceded in death by: her husband; her parents; brothers, Gene Kidd (Ruth), Dean Kidd (Glenna), Robert Kidd, Gary Kidd; sisters, Joyce Juroska (Raymond), and Eileen Baird (Fred).

Marcella is survived by a large host of loving family, including: one son, Jerry W. Ryan (Susan) of Milford, Ohio; two daughters, Charolette Taylor (Dewayne) of Stearns, Kentucky, Leanna Marie Roberts (Kerry) of Elizabethtown, Kentucky; one brother, Lonnie Kidd (Janie) ; one sister, Sue Tribble (Danny); two sisters-in-law, Judy Kidd, Jewell Kidd; ten grandchildren, Sarah Wolfe, Jason Kidd, Tori Taylor, Madison Taylor, William Taylor, Damon Coffey, Kyle Coffey, Riley Taylor, Amber Roe, Devin Roberts, Jesse Roberts, Miranda Keeton, Ashley Ryan, Brandon Ryan, Jessica Smith, Erica Spiva; and numerous great grandchildren.

Pine Knot Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements for Mrs. Marcella Ryan.

So many childhood memories of sleeping in Leannas waterbed,making ceramics and being yelled at to get out of the bathroom. Chicken and dumplings will never taste the same. Love everyone.

So sorry to hear of Sister Marcella's passing. She was always a pleasure to be in church with and we will miss her but we also rejoice in her homegoing for she has made the ultimate exchange. May your love and memories comfort you in the days ahead and may God surround all of you now.
