Martha Louise Marshall

Martha Louise Marshall left her family who loved her on Oct. 30 (her birthday), after a lengthy hospital stay. She was a life-long resident of Bainbridge, until 1996, when she came to live with her daughter, Susan, in Roswell, Ga.
She is survived by her two daughters, Susan Marshall of Roswell, and Nancy Simmons of Pensacola, Fla.; her son, David Marshall of Marietta, Ga.; grandchildren: Pamela Roat, Donna Marshall, Dave Marshall, Jamie Marshall, and Danny Marshall; and great-grandchildren: Kayla, Autumn, Jeremy, and Michael; and the dog that she adored, Jasmine.
She was preceded in death by her son, Robert J. Marshall and her brother, Carl Jefferson Shirah Jr., of Bainbridge; sisters, Hilda Grace Holt, of Tampa, Fla., and Sybil Joan Shirah; and her parents, Carl J. Shirah Sr. and Ruth Naomi Yates Shirah of Bainbridge.
Cremation was handled by SouthCare in Alpharetta, Ga. A private memorial service will be held at a later date. Expressions of sympathy may be sent to 1195 Primrose Drive, Roswell, GA 30076.
“If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.”
We will continue to love you and miss you every day of our lives. We were fortunate to have such a wonderful mother, and our hearts are heavy with grief. You have left a hole in our hearts that cannot be mended, but we know that you have found peace and love that you so richly deserve with our Heavenly Father. We love you.
Your children, Susan, Nancy and David
