BANGOR and ABBOT – Susan Ellen (Brown) Marshall, 72, slipped peacefully away July 23, 2012. She was born July 2, 1940, daughter of Bill and Ellen (Tompkins) Brown.
On April 25, 1959, she married Charlie Marshall, the only love of her life – except for her dad.
She is the mother of three children, Vicki Ellen, Tony and Peggy; and mother-in-law to Kevin Schmidt and Alice Marshall. She has nine grandchildren, Kathy Ellen Morano, Jenn Kocse, Cyndi LaFleur, Mandy and Erica Sue Marshall, Rebecca, Andrew, Jordan and Lydia Marshall; and eight great-grandchildren, Whitney Sue, Stella, Lilliana Ellen, Molly, Cailyn and Morgan, Brooklyn, and as yet unseen, Christopher. Susan has many sisters and brothers, Tim, Carolyn, Charlie, Marge, Judy, Dave, Gina, Becky, Rachel, Debbie and Lisa; many brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews, whom she loved greatly; and one best friend, Marion Brown. She told us frequently that she had lived a good life.
Graveside services will be held 2 p.m. Friday, July 27, at Abbot Village Cemetery with the Rev. Chad Poland, pastor of First Congregational Church of Dover-Foxcroft, officiating, with a reception afterward at Abbot Town Hall.
