Marcella A Waltz 2018

“If it’s more blessed to give than to receive, then Marcella S. Waltz is the closest thing to a saint that Waynesboro has ever known.” These words, penned by Roscoe Barnes in the Record Herald, appropriately describe the life and legacy of late Marcella A. (Snively) Waltz. Born May 9, 1922 to the late Edgar Allen and Viola Maybelle Snively, Mrs. Waltz was a native of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania and graduated with the Waynesboro Area Senior High School Class of 1940 In her formative years, Mrs. Waltz was a cook for private families and at the Elks Club. She later found her vocation as the social worker in Franklin County’s first Head Start program that was birthed at St. Paul A.M.E. Church. She later became the social worker for the Franklin County Migrant Program and the Waynesboro Area School District where she retired from in 1987. In her role as social worker Mrs. Waltz made a real impact and difference with families and in this town. Her work was often acknowledged in area newspapers and with awards like the prestigious Jefferson Award from the American Institute of Public Service. Mrs. Waltz also started the Adult Basic Education program that later became the G.E.D. program and was instrumental in the establishment of the Waynesboro Day Care Center. Mrs. Waltz was a member of St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church where she once served as the Sunday School Superintendent, Happy Lark’s Club Coordinator and member of the Stewardess Board, the Simmons-Hopewell Scholarship Committee and Senior Choir. She also had been a member of St. Andrew’s the Apostle Roman Catholic Church where she directed its migrant program. In addition to her spiritual activities, Mrs. Waltz was the chairperson of the local Salvation Army Unit where she sent countless children to camp each summer, provided Christmas gifts and provided financial assistance to persons in need. Mrs. Waltz also coordinated the Waynesboro Food Pantry for approximately 30 years and was once president of the Waynesboro Negro Civic Association, the Phoenix-Stoner American Legion Post 198 Ladies Auxiliary (Waynesboro’s now defunct black America Legion) and was a Girl Scout Leader. Mrs. Waltz was married to the late Floyd Mahlon Waltz who preceded her in death in 1965. She was the proud and loving mother of the late Rena Maybelle (Waltz) Simmons who preceded her in death in 1998. She was also preceded in death by her parents and four siblings, James Monroe Snively, Robert “Tom” Snively, Philip “Philco” Snively, and Charlotte U. “Deanie” Cobb. Left to cherish her memory are her two grandsons, R. Mahlon Simmons of Waynesboro, PA and the Reverend James C. Simmons of Rochester, NY and numerous nieces and nephews.
