Viola Marshall of Snoqualmie, Wash., died peacefully in her sleep and is now with the Lord.
Viola was born in Seattle to Carl and Esther (Markgren) Ment, both immigrants—her father from Germany, her mother from Sweden. Vi’s parents had both died by the time she was twelve. After High School and business school she worked for Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. Through mutual friends she met George Frederick “Fred” Marshall. They married Thanksgiving Day, 1942 at the old Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Seattle. In 1944 they moved to Ernie’s Grove in Snoqualmie where they lived for most of their married lives.
Vi Marshall was a well-liked and respected teller at the Bank in Snoqualmie, later transferring to a bank in North Bend, Wash. where she worked for many years. Later she worked in an office for Weyerhaeuser Co. Viola was a life-long Lutheran and a devoted member of Mount Si Lutheran Church. She was an active member and was the Sunday School Treasurer for many years.
Viola was preceded in death by her husband of 70 years, Fred Marshall; her two sons, Frederick “Ricky” and John Marshall; her sister, Edna Lash and her daughter, Maureen. Viola is survived by her daughter, Marjorie Kinch and her husband, Michael, of Corvallis, Ore.; and her daughter-in-law, Julia Marshall of Edmonds. She has four grandchildren: Ginger Henry of Vancouver, Wash.; Lucinda Kinch of Buellton, Calif.; and Scott and Kate Marshall of Edmonds. Viola also leaves behind three great-grandsons; Zen and Owen Lyon, and Patrick Henry.
Viola Marshall is buried next to her husband and other family members in the Pacific Lutheran part of Washelli Cemetery in Seattle. A memorial service is being planned for both Viola and Fred Marshall at Mount Si Lutheran Church in North Bend, Wash. on Saturday, June 22, 2013 at 2:00 p.m.
