Etta L. Fowler Marshall

The Payette Independent
Thursday, January 10, 1929


It was with feelings of sadness that the people of Payette received the news of the death of Mrs. R. C. Marshall, who passed away at her home in this city Saturday evening, after an illness from influenza, complicated with blood poisoning which started from a slight infection. Few realized the seriousness of her condition and her death was a great shock to all of her friends.

Etta L. Fowler was born at Weepingwater, Nebraska, November 16, 1882, and passed from this life on January 5, 1929, at the age of 46 years, 1 month and 19 days. She was united in marriage to Roy C. Marshall on Christmas day in 1901. In 1902 they moved to Washington and 1908 they came to Payette where they have since resided.

She is survived by her husband, Roy C. Marshall, and five children, Mrs. Ruth I. King, of Los Angeles, California, Keith M.; Jack A., Max J. and Doris L. Also by her mother, Mrs. Laura Fowler, of Weepingwater, and three sisters and two brothers.

At an early age Mrs. Marshall united with the Methodist church and was affiliated with it until her death. She was loved by all who knew her, and was one of those sweet, kindly Christian women who spread sunshine and happiness wherever they go. Her devotedness as a wife and mother was one of her most tender and womanly characteristics.

Funeral services were held at the Methodist church Monday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, and a very touching and appropriate sermon was delivered by Rev. A. B. Parrett, her pastor. She was laid to rest in Riverside cemetery.
