Two children, Hazel and Fern, preceded her in death. She also leaves three grandchildren, and one sister, Mrs. Gusta Thorp of Sandpoint, Idaho. Mr. and Mrs. Marshall made their home for nearly forty years on the Marshall homestead near North Bend. In 1928 they purchased a home in Melrose where they lived for seven years and then they moved to Neillsville where they lived until she was taken away. Mrs. Marshall was deeply devoted to her husband, home, and children. She had belonged to the Presbyterian Church at North Bend for about 40 years. Also the Rebekah order and to the Ladies' Aid at North Bend. She was a kind, lovable woman and will be sadly missed in her home and among her friends and relatives. The sympathy of all goes to her husband and children.
