Margaret Corinne Marshall was born June 11, 1922, in rural
Humboldt County, Tennessee, near Memphis, the youngest of five
brothers and sisters, and passed away on March 22, 2020, at the age
of 97. She was the daughter of Samuel and Margaret Morrison. At
the age of two, she moved with her family to Los Angeles, settling in
the Wilmington-Gardena area. She graduated from Compton High
School and began study at Compton Junior College, where she met
Albert Louis Marshall. After he completed his A.A. and a BA at Santa Barbara State College, they
married in 1941. Their daughter April Lynne was born in 1942, and their son Donald Glenn in
1943. Albert served in the Navy as a Commanding Officer of a Patrol Torpedo boat and served
in the Asian Theatre. After WWII, he went to work in the print shop at Douglas Aircraft and in
1948, he and Margaret opened Suburban Printers in South Gate. Margaret worked side by
side with him, and they raised their family in South Gate. Following Albert’s passing in 1971,
Margaret moved to Downey and resided there until 2015, when she entered assisted living
in La Mirada and then Murrieta, where her daughter and granddaughter live. To support
herself after her husband passed, she started a small business filing their patients’ insurance
claims for several doctors. The business became quite successful, and both supported her and
provided training for a number of women she employed over the years. Raised in the Baptist
Church, Margaret became an Episcopalian in the early 1950s and was a stalwart member and
supporter of St. Margaret’s Church, South Gate, and a member of the Choir and Vestry for many
years. She was a dedicated supporter of the Downey Symphony for many years. Her home was
always a welcoming center for her son and daughter’s friends, who had great affection for her
and found in her a listening and accepting ear. She was an intelligent and insightful student
of psychology and always strove to understand sympathetically why people acted as they
did. She loved her family and stood by them whatever the challenge they faced. She always
enjoyed reading and was a stickler for correct grammar and clear and correct pronunciation.
She had a lively curiosity and loved learning from everyone she met. She also loved California,
and after a short time in Miami when Albert was receiving naval training there, she never
left California and never wished to do so. She is survived by her daughter April, son Donald,
grandchildren January King, Stephanie Marshall, and Zachary Marshall, step-granddaughter
Bonnie Ingle, great-grandchildren Skyler King, J.B. Sierra, Travis Ingle, and Heather Ross, and
four great-great grandchildren. Her Christian faith was her consolation and her hope. She will
be laid to rest in a private graveside service.
