Marion Ferrer Nevala, age 79 of Coal Center, PA was called home to her eternal reward by her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on July 6, 2017.

She was born on March 31, 1938, a daughter of the late James and Mary Ferrer. 

She spent her childhood in Monessen, PA and was a graduate of the Monessen High School Class of 1956.

Marion met her husband Ralph Nevala during the time when he delivered milk from Nevala Dairy to her neighborhood.

They were married in Holy Matrimony on August 23, 1958 and celebrated almost 59 year of marriage together.

Later, she worked as a tax preparer for H&R Block and as an administrative assistant at the Sacred Heart Cemetery in Monongahela, PA.

She was a faithful parishioner of the Saint Katharine Drexel (former St. Agnes Church), sharing her angelic voice as a member of the choir, in singing songs praise to her Savior.  Mrs. Nevala was also a member of the Catholic Daughter of the Americas.

As a loving Grandmother, she enjoyed spending the summers with her grandsons on the farm, as well as traveling with them to Disney World, Washington D.C. and trips to the Carolinas.

In 2014, becoming a Great-Grandmother brought tremendous joy to her life, as she finally was blessed with the granddaughter she had hoped for, with the birth of Tenley Hope.

Marion had a love for gardening and a joy for hosting her family for holidays and celebrations.

She was predeceased in death by her parents and her brothers Joseph and Michael Ferrer.

She leaves her loving memories to be cherished by; her Husband Ralph Nevala, sons Vincent Nevala, wife Paula of California, PA and David Nevala, wife Maria of Rostraver, PA; grandsons Nathaniel Nevala, wife Heidi of Mt. Lebanon, PA and Matthew Nevala, wife Bekah of Charleston, SC; great granddaughter Tenley Hope Nevala, age 3; brother James Ferrer, wife Dolores of Vienna, VA and sister in law Mary Ferrer of Harrisburg, PA.
