Marcela was born in the community of Val Verde near Donna, Texas, in 1927. She spent her early years at her family’s ranch at Las Delicias on the outskirts of General Teran in Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Later, she moved to Brownsville to work; while there, she met and married Isaias Rodriguez and started a family. They spent a few years working as migrant laborers in California before moving to Donna and building a home. She is remembered as a supportive wife and a loving mother and grandmother. Marcela was a faithful servant of God and instilled that faith and love of God into her children and grandchildren.
