Marshall, Margaret Allen Mrs. – Obituary

Margaret Marshall, 93, affectionately called “Grandma Margaret,” died Aug. 17, 2003, at her daughter’s home in Richland.

A celebration of her life and family gathering will be scheduled later.

Margaret Nora Marshall was born on Sept. 11, 1909, to Edward and Nora Heath Allen at Bethel, Wis. She was raised most of her life at Park Falls, Wis.

Margaret moved to Oregon in 1970. She spent her first four years at Estacada and then moved to Richland. During her life she worked as a caregiver and did so even into her 80s, helping others to be able to stay in their own homes.

Her favorite flower was the iris. She enjoyed gardening, the mountains and oil painting. In 1993 when Margaret was 83, she moved in with her daughter Lucille Burk. It was Margaret’s wish to be able to be at home when she died. Her family surrounded her with love and her wish was honored.

Survivors include three children, Mary Emrich, Lucille Burk and Robert Palen; 15 grandchildren, 45 great-grandchildren, and 25 great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents and three grandchildren.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Eagle Valley Ambulance Service through Tami’s Pine Valley Funeral Home, P.O. Box 543 Halfway, OR 97834.
