Marcelle is an avid gardener and enjoys working in her many gardens even when the deer eat all the tulips. She manages to quilt and knit in her spare time. You can always find many of her projects at St. Peter’s annual tea and bazaar. She loves to travel and has joined Father Tony Man-Son-Hing on many of his wonderful pilgrimages.
