Mella’s Story

Mary Louise (Mella) Udall Palmer used the power of music to lift and inspire. Her life was filled with service to others, and often that service was centered in music, whether at the organ, piano, or in a choral group. With grace she endured a long struggle with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. But the memory of her life and character live on through this company.
