Until his health began to fail, Marshall was a faithful member of Zion Baptist Church, Chillicothe. He was always ready to lend a helping hand to everyone because he enjoyed working and keeping busy. Marshall took great pride in his planting and maintaining flowers in front of his apartment. He also thought he was a “master mechanic,” and would tinker with every automobile he got, only to make the problem worse!
A funeral service will be held at the old Zion Baptist Church, 536 Mill Street, the corner of Mill Street and Locust Street, Chillicothe on Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at 1p.m. with Rev. Dr. J. Troy Gray and Bishop Melvin Maughmer officiating. Burial will follow in Greenlawn Cemetery, Chillicothe. Friends will be received at the church from noon until the time of the service. Those attending will need to wear face masks and observe social distancing. The EBRIGHT FUNERAL HOME, Frankfort is serving the family.
