Fairy Marcella Hackerd

Fairy Marcella Hackerd, 84, of Camden, Ind., ran into our Savior’s arms on September 8, 2023.  She was born on March 4, 1939 in Frankfort to Claude “Tom” Steward and Grace L. (Edmonds) King.  She married Robert E. Hackerd in 1957 and they later divorced.

Fairy graduated in 1957 with honors from Frankfort Senior High School.  She worked for National Homes for 14 years and Frito Lay for 15 years, retiring on March 18, 1996.  Fairy was known around Carroll County as the “Mum Lady”, selling chrysanthemums and produce for a dozen years.  She was a member of Woodside Christian Church and then Delphi Christian Church where she was active in the church choir.  Her love of her church family and teaching the youth led her to serve her churches by teaching Sunday School, leading youth group, and participating as a church camp counselor.  An avid reader herself, Fairy will soon be a published Christian book author.  She was a Cub Scout Den Mother and enjoyed cooking, gardening, and being outdoors, but above all her love of her faith and family stood strongest.

Surviving are her Son: Martin (Lorina) Hackerd of Frankfort and Daughter: Dawn (Michael) Davis of Camden.  She was preceded in death by her parents, sister: Melba Miller, and brothers: James and Harold Rimmer.
