Goodwin, Marcella Jean

October 7, 1959 – March 2, 2019
Age 59 of Saint Michael. She was born on October 7, 1959 in Minneapolis, MN to Michael Goodwin and Joan Roberts. She attended Harding Senior High School for most of her high school career and graduated from Blaine High School in 1978. Marci’s favorite pastime was making personalized gifts for family, friends, and even strangers. She created many hats to donate for premature babies, as well as many special projects for her grandchildren. Hats, blankets, and clothing were among the many gifts she created, all with her special touch. She also enjoyed designing Christmas stockings for her family, all personalized for each one. Her creativity was beyond compare. Marci was preceded in death by her father. She is survived by her mother; daughter, Stacy (Griselda); grandchildren, Morgan and Gavin; siblings Wayne (Connie), Robert (Nikki), Scott, and Suzanne; her lifetime best friend, Tammy; ten nieces and nephews; and many other family and friends who loved her. A celebration of life will be held in July when we can all safely turn a corner without a snowbank in our way. (Published in the Star Tribune on Mar. 10, 2019).
