Obituary for Novella Thelma Crosell

On Tuesday, June 5, 2018, Novella Crosell of New Brunswick, NJ departed this life suddenly.

Novella was born April 14, 1927 to the union of James and Edna Green. From the marriage of her mother and father ten children were born: Dorothy, Deloris, Annabelle, Thomas, Walter, Earl, Paul, Dennis, Marco and Novella. All of Novella’s siblings preceded her in her passing.

Novella was born in Salisbury, Maryland, where she was educated in the Salisbury, Maryland school system. She went to work on her family’s farm raising chickens, vegetables and things that not only provided for her family but for the people of town as well. She also worked as a Nurse’s Aide to the sick, and she did housekeeping on the side.

Some years later, Novella married Edward Charles Crosell. Out of their union four children, Robert, Thelma, Mary and Charles, were born.

Later in life, Novella relocated in 1967 to Newark, NJ where she joined O.E.S. the Masonic Order of Eastern Stars. She was active in this organization until the day she passed away. She always paid her dues.

Novella leaves to mourn: two children, Robert and Thelma; thirty grandchildren, fifty-seven great grandchildren and sixty-eight great-great grandchildren; her best friend, Helen; and a whole host of nieces, nephews and friends.
