Obituary

OBITUARY

To die: – To sleep:  no more; and by a sleep to say we end the heartache and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to., ’tis a consummation devoutly to be wished.

Loving, kind and understanding, are the words most appropriate to describe Mrs. Ella Louise Marshall. She was born to Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Chapple September 18, 1923 in Houston, Texas, and was reared in the fifth-ward section. She was a student of the Atherton Elementary and Phyllis Wheatley Schools. At an early age she united to the Canaan Baptist Church. She later united to the Mt. Horem Baptist Church where she remained for more than twenty years.

In 1942 she united in holy matrimony to Edward Marshall, and to this union were born three children: a daughter, Mrs. Betty Marshall Armstrong, Two sons: Ralph and Reginald Marshall.

While at Mt. Horem, Mrs. Marshall was a member of Naomi Circle and the Mission Chorus., not only was she active in the church, but in her community as well., her good works leave their impact on all who knew her and loved her.

She is survived by her husband: Mr. Edward Marshall, Mother: Mrs. Ethel Chapple; 2 sisters: Mrs. Carrie Taylor and Mrs. Altha Scott; 1 brother Mr. Joseph Chapple Jr., 1 daughter; 2 sons; 1 grandson; 4 Nieces; 10 Nephews; 1 Aunt; 1 Great Aunt; 1 Great Uncle; and a Host of Relatives and Friends.

She will be missed by all who loved her.
