Marshall, Jennie (21 NOV 1866 - 5 MAY 1919)

Mrs. E. W. Marshall passed away Monday, May 5, 1919, at the home of her sister, Mrs. James O'Neill, after a lingering illness of nearly a year, due to heart trouble. About three months ago she came here from her home at Spirit Lake, Idaho, thinking that the change and the care which her sisters could give her might be of benefit. Her ailment, however, continued to increase.

Mrs. Marshall, whose maiden name was Jennie Robinson, was born at Weston Rapids, Clark County, Wis., a short distance north of Neillsville, Nov. 21, 1866. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David Robinson, one of the first families to settle at Weston Rapids. Here she grew to womanhood. She was married to E. W. Marshall Sept. 10, 1891. They made their home in Neillsville for some time. Later they lived in Minneapolis, Minn. and Plainfield, Wis., moving to Spirit Lake, Idaho twelve years ago. Mrs. Marshall was a woman of fine type of mind, intelligent, sympathetic and responsive to the best things of the home and the community. She was a helpful worker in civic affairs, while in health, and was an active member of the Eastern Star. Those who knew her all her life, have for her only words of praise and the kindest memories. We quote from one who briefly summed up her character in these words: " She was a splendid woman."

She leaves her husband, two sons: James H. Marshall, of Salt Lake City, and Cyril, recently discharged from the Navy and at home at Spirit Lake; also two grandchildren, children of Mr. and Mrs. James H. Marshall; three sisters: Mrs. James O'Neill and Mrs. S. F. Hewett, of Neillsville, and Mrs. Charlotte Klopf, of Spirit Lake, survive her. Funeral services will be held today (Thursday) at 3 o'clock p.m. at the O'Neill residence.
