On Monday May 30, 2022, Marcella (Sally) McLoud, loving wife and mother of four, passed away at the age of 92. Sally was born May 25, 1930 in Slaton, TX to Henry and Anna Hollinden. She graduated valedictorian of her high school class at the age of 16 and received an associate’s degree, with honors, at the age of 53. She had two of her four children in Texas while helping to put her husband Earl through medical school.

They later moved to Massachusetts where their younger two children were born and where Sally was a full time Mom as well as giving her time and talent to various church and charitable organizations.

Sally had a sharp mind and a ready wit. She loved watching Jeopardy and was nearly impossible to beat at Trivial Pursuit. Sally loved to laugh and tell stories of younger days, especially as a repair crew dispatcher, at the age of sixteen, for the electric company in her home town and working for the merchant marine in Galveston, TX while starting a family with her husband who was a medical student at the time.

In later life she enjoyed being a snowbird splitting her time between their log cabin on the coast in Corea, ME and their home in South Palm Beach, FL.

Sally was preceded in death by parents and her sister Irene Steffens. She is survived by her husband of nearly 68 years R. Earl McLoud, her daughter Laura and husband Winslow Rogers, her son Mike and wife Lynn McLoud, her daughter Kate McLoud, and her daughter Nancy and husband Rene Vidaurre as well as grandchildren Michael McLoud and partner Heather Boyd, Marcela Gallardo and husband Francisco Centeno, Marcos Vidaurre and fiancé Mia Waddel, Vivian Rogers, and Daniel Vidaurre.

A viewing will be held on June 4, 2022 from 9:00 - 10:00 AM at Brown’s Funeral Home in Lantana, FL and will be followed by a funeral Mass at 11:00 AM at St Edward Catholic Church in Palm Beach, FL. An interment ceremony will be held at 1:00PM in the same day at Our Lady Queen of Peace Cemetery in Royal Palm Beach, FL. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul:
