Obituary for Marcella Jane Cowan

Marcella Jane Cowan peacefully took flight March 6, 2018, to join her beloved Des. Marcy was born Dec. 13, 1926 in Tacoma, WA, daughter of Caroline and Ben Koepnick, sister to Marvin (deceased). She married the love of her life, William D. Cowan, in 1947 and celebrated 64 years of marriage before his passing in 2011. Marcy was a loving wife and homemaker, mother to Marcia Hager (Don) and Susan Cowan (Dan Parker), Granny to Nicholas Pittman. She worked for 15 years at JC Penney, enjoyed golf and travel with Des. After Des passed, little Freddy came into her life and helped fill the hole that was left. Her family would like to thank the good folks at Brookdale Assisted Living for their care of Marcy during the last year and Franciscan Hospice during her final days. Marcy leaves behind her loving nieces and nephews: Jack Cowan (Jane), Barbara Cowan, Joan Waldock (Gordy), & Jim Cowan, and Pam Koepnick Ford and Jeff Koepnick. A special thank you to God-daughter, Paula Peluso-Fiorino, for her loving care and attention to Marcy in her final days. Remembrances can be made to the Tacoma Humane Society in Freddy’s honor
