Obituary of Virginia Marshall

Virginia Annello Marshall went to be with the Lord on November 2, 2017. Virginia was born on July 10, 1938 in Baltimore, Maryland.  She was raised in Washington DC by her mother and stepfather, Jean and Davis Patterson. In 1957 Virginia married the love of her life, Jerome (General)Marshall. They started a family right away with three beautiful boys, Bill, Steve and Jerry Marshall.


Being a wife and a mother, Virginia was content to raise her three boys. Once they had grown up she entered the workplace in fashion merchandising with JC Penney’s and eventually became a fashion buyer with Montgomery Wards. She had a passion for fashion, she was always dressed to the hilt with hair done and make up perfect.


Ocean City was her favorite place to go to, which is where she and General, her nickname for Jerry, retired to and lived for 14 years. She loved the Boardwalk, Thrashers French fries, Fisher’s Popcorn and just watching people. A beautiful summers day would find Virginia sitting in her beach chair on the edge of the water. Her other passion was for dogs. There was always a house full of them. She loved to rescue them and supported organizations that helped in their rescue.


Virginia is survived by her husband, Jerome Marshall, her sons Bill Marshall and his wife Vanessa, Jerry and his wife Chrissy, two grandchildren Billy Marshall and his wife Laura, Candace Marshall, and 4 great grand children. Virginia’s son, Steven preceded her in death.
