Sheila Lynn Marshall

1948 - 2021



Sheila Lynn Marshall was born December 7, 1948 in Muncie Indiana to Robert and Hopie Marshall. On March 4, 2021 Sheila took her Savior’s hand and departed her earthly body to go home and be with Our Lord.

Sheila, affectionately known as Suzie by her family and friends, attended Garfield Elementary School, Franklin Jr High and Southside High School. She also attended Business College. After graduating from Southside Suzie worked for Chevrolet and retired after 40 plus years.

She was a faithful and longtime member (since her childhood) of Calvary Baptist Church, serving on the Usher Board and recently stepping in as President of the Usher Board. Always working in the kitchen and overseeing the church picnic. According to the sisters at Calvary, Sheila was all over the place doing anything and everything where needed.

She spearheaded, along with her Mother, the Hill Family Reunion, which has grown into a regular bi-yearly family event. She summoned the Marshall family home for Thanksgiving which has now grown to over 35 family members returning home for a large gathering at Thanksgiving. Always giving so much to her family.

The love of her life were her children, Daughter LaTanya (Tannie) Son Sidney, Grandchildren and Great Grans. Travel had become a great enjoyment for her especially International Travel. She was a very strong independent single mother raising her two children. She was a great cook, the one to say “let’s get together” to her friends and go the lunch or something else. Always taking care of her children and grans, always giving to her family, church and friends.

Suzie loved to Shop!!! Did we tell you Sheila Loved to SHOP!!! She was known for her Fashion Sense!! When complimented she would respond “I can’t help it! I took after my Mother and Father”, with that beautiful smile of hers.

Suzie was preceded in death by her Parents, Brother Louis Marshall, Kent Rollo Marshall, Sisters Sandra Hill, Cheryl Gantt and niece Audia Nicole.

She leaves to cherish her memory, her Daughter LaTanya (Tannie) Marshall of Muncie, Son Sidney Marshall of Indianapolis, Grandchildren, Jasmine, Samone, Marquita, Dominique, Jaylin and Sydney Marshall.
