Grateful Patient Story – Shella Marzich Family

When talking with Michele Kennedy and her family about their mom, Shella Marzich, it’s easy to see the impact one person can have on many others.

The word “superhero” is defined as “an exceptionally skillful or successful person.” Michele Kennedy said her mom was a true superhero.

“Not the kind that wore a cape, flew around or went invisible. She was far more amazing than the fictional heroes we read about in comic books. My mom was the strongest person I have ever known. She has overcome things in her life that would make other people crumble.”

Shella met her husband as a teenager at Meyers Lake, and they instantly fell in love and were married in 1970. They had a daughter, Michele, and a son, David. Through the good and not so good times of her health issues, her husband stayed right by her side. Shella was a teacher with the St. Paul Latchkey program and worked at the Bob-O-Link golf course snack shop.

When Shella left this life, she left a large void in the family she loved so dearly. She was the sparkle and excitement of the holidays, and she was full of unconditional love for her family and friends. Michele shares that because of the love and support of the Aultman Hospice team, her family got the opportunity to share special moments with her mom until her final days.

During Shella’s seven months with Aultman Hospice, the Marzich family met many wonderful people.

“We learned so much from the doctors, nurses and the aides,” Michele said. “Dr. Marsh and Dr. Hanne were so patient and kind. Our nurse, Michelle, guided us when we needed extra help, and our aide, Patti, was always helpful and made mom feel so special. Sarah, our social worker, checked on us often to make sure we didn’t need anything and always listened when we felt lost or emotional. Music Therapist Jocelyn, with her beautiful voice, brought so much joy and love to all of us when she came to sing and play music for mom.”

She continued, “Mom spent a week at the beautiful and peaceful Compassionate Care Center (CCC), and the entire staff we met there was truly outstanding! The day my mom was brought by ambulance to the CCC, my dad and I were so worried about her that we hadn’t eaten all day. Then, we were told to help ourselves to the soup in the CCC kitchen. We sat and enjoyed a wonderful, hot bowl of chili with a gentleman who was also at the CCC with his wife.”

Often, people say that the Aultman Hospice team members become more than care staff, they become friends with their continuous support. Michele summed it up best: “We are forever grateful for their understanding, kindness, caring and patience as we learned what placing a loved one in hospice truly meant.”

During the holiday season, Michele shared that when her family looked at the Aultman Memory Tree and saw the beautiful decorations, they realized how many wonderful family members have been helped by the Aultman Hospice team. These decorations represent the people they continue to love and miss in their everyday lives. The Aultman Hospice Team and Memory Tree event help to honor the legacies of so many who remain in the hearts and memories of their families and friends.

“On behalf of my dad, the Shella Marzich family and the many other families who have been touched by your kindness, thank you to the entire Aultman Hospice team for walking this path with us. You are appreciated more than you will ever know,” Michele said.
