January 6, 2021

Marcella K. Buchholz, 74, of Three Forks, Montana, died December 24, 2020, at Bozeman Deaconess Hospital. She was born January 31, 1946, at home in Boyd, Montana, to Herman and Amanda (Mulder) DeVries. After graduating from Roberts High School, she completed cosmetology school and began working as a beautician. Marcella married Raymond Buchholz on July 8, 1967, in Billings, Montana, at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church. They moved to Pasco, Washington, and daughter, Kathy, was born in 1973. Three years later, the family moved to Post Falls, Idaho, and Marcella was a homemaker and stay at home mom. Later, they moved to Rathdrum, Idaho, during which time she became a mail carrier for the USPS. After retiring, they moved back to Montana; living in Wilsall, Toston, and finally, Three Forks, to be closer to their daughter. Marcella (Grama) doted on her two grandchildren, Allen and Amanda, and continuously spoiled them. As her husband's health started to decline, she became his caregiver at home. She always remained grounded in her faith, studying God's word daily.

Mrs. Buchholz was preceded in death by her parents, sisters Emma and Beverly, and brother Herman.

She is survived by her husband, Raymond Buchholz of Three Forks, Montana, daughter Kathy Wilcox of Toston, Montana, grandchildren Allen and Amanda Wilcox also of Toston, sister Loretta Kilwein of Billings, Montana, sister Gladys Weimer of Roberts, Montana, and several nieces and nephews.
