Sister Marcella Schrant, 95, an Ursuline Sister of Mount Saint Joseph, died Sept. 25, 2021, at Mount Saint Joseph, in her 76th year of religious life. She was a native of Walker, Kan.

All of her ministry was in Kansas until retiring to Maple Mount in 2014. She was a teacher for 43 years, superior of her community (1990-94), a college campus receptionist and a parish minister. She volunteered in the Mission Advancement office at Maple Mount (2015-20).

Survivors include the members of her religious community and her sister, Virginia Schrant, Garnett, Kan. She was preceded in death by her parents, Henry and Katherine Schrant; and her siblings Ralph Schrant, Louis Schrant, Herman Schrant, Norbert Schrant, and Marie Truan.

The funeral Mass is at 10:30 a.m. Friday at Mount Saint Joseph, where visitation begins Thursday at 4 p.m. A wake service follows at 6:30 p.m. All safety protocols will be in place. Both services will be live streamed.
