Marshall, Helen #2 (27 SEP 1838 - 27 DEC 1906)

Mrs. Helen Marshall died at her home in Plainfield last week Thursday, Dec. 27th, 1906, aged 68 years and 3 months, after an illness of but two days. The body was brought here Saturday for burial in the family lot, the funeral taking place Sunday afternoon at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Daniel Kennedy, Rev. Rice officiating. Her death had been wholly unexpected, and the dispatch announcing it came as a shock to the relatives and many friends here, by whom she was greatly beloved, as she was by all who knew her, for she was a woman of most amiable character, brightness of mind and cheerful disposition.

Born Helen Brown at Grafton, Vt., Sept. 27, 1838, she was married to J. H. Marshall at Woodstock, Ill., Sept. 27, 1856, moving to Black River Falls soon after, and to Neillsville (Clark Co., Wis.) in 1869. Her for many years he conducted a hardware store, winging a prominent position in the business circle, as the wife did in the social life of the place. Three children survive, Mrs. Eva Marshall, Mrs. Daniel Kennedy and E. William Marshall, one child, Helen, having died but a year old. Her husband died in 1875. After his death she spent most of her time with her children, and was with her parents at Augusta, a great comfort to them in their old age, some years. She and her son Will kept house on the north side for a few years some years ago. More recently she made her home at Plainfield, where Will has been in business and the daughter Eva lived.

Those from away who attended the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. B. F. Brown of Minneapolis; Mrs. A. S. Eaton of Superior; Mrs. C. F. Stone of Nabagman, Wis.; Ed Brown, Appleton; Mr. and Mrs. E.W. Marshal of Plainfield; Mrs. Eva Marshal of Plainfield; Mrs. Cora Cannon, Wausau.

The floral offerings were costly and beautiful, telling of the love felt all for the sweet and faithful woman who had so well fulfilled every duty before sinking into the long sleep.
