Emma Marshall

Emma Caroline Marshall, 94, New Palestine, passed away on Saturday, April 2, 2016. Born Emma Logel on May 31, 1921, in Mt. Vernon.

She married James Marshall on August 28, 1945. Emma was a sweet woman who always watched out for and worried over the ones she loved. She was the mother of three daughters, grandmother of six, and great-grandmother of two. She was a great cook and everything tasted better because she used home grown veggies and bacon grease. She made the best potato salad, fried fish and jars of jelly without recipes. She was a strong woman which made her husband a better man.

She and Jim tended a large garden, canned vegetables, built houses, push mowed acres of grass, and she didn’t quit until she cleaned up. Emma enjoyed fishing in the Gulf of Mexico and playing pinochle.

Emma is survived by her daughters, Janis Lundwall (Dan) and Karen Sipe and their families including grandchildren, Nick Young (Kelly), Nathan Young, Scott Lundwall and Todd Lundwall; and great-grandchildren, Bailey Young and Sean Young.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Jim; daughter, Kathy Kent; and grandchildren, Sean and Kyle Kent.

Following her wishes there will be no services.
