Eleanor Mary Marshall
On November 7, 2019, with peace in her heart and an eternal inheritance awaiting her, Eleanor Mary Marshall slipped into the presence of her Savior, Jesus Christ, and her heavenly home.
Eleanor was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was 95, born in Perth on March 11, 1924. She taught practical Bible release time classes in Fulton and Montgomery counties and was devoted to child evangelism. Mrs. Marshall was committed to a lifetime of missions in West Africa.
She is survived by her children, Robert Marshall and his wife Candice of Perth, NY, Bonnie Jessee and her husband Nic of Grand Rapids, Mich., Richard Marshall and his wife Anna of Bamako, Mali, Donald Marshall and his wife Sue of Chalons en Champagne, France and Peter Marshall and his wife Melody of Dubuque, Iowa; 27 grandchildren and 61 great-grandchildren.
She was preceded to heaven by her sweetheart of almost 64 years, the Rev. Frank Howard Marshall, who passed on May 13, 2015.
Eleanor is blessed to leave a “mission legacy” behind on three different continents. Eleanor and her late husband, the Rev. Frank Howard Marshall have influenced so many for Christ, including their own growing family which has grown to 107-plus currently. It’s amazing what happens when two people fall in love and decide to serve their Savior.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made to Sacandaga Bible Conference, children camping scholarship fund.
Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, November 11, 2019, at the Perth Bible Church, 1863 County Highway 107, Amsterdam, New York 12010.
Viewing for family and friends will be prior to the funeral service on Monday, November 11, 2019, at the church from 9 to 10 a.m. Her service will immediately follow at 10:30 a.m.
Private interment will be in Perth Cemetery, Perth.
