Linda Lee Marshall, 62, died on Thursday, March 28. A breast cancer survivor, she lost her battle to ovarian cancer.
She was born on Jan. 2, 1951, to John S. Marshall and Gladys Bashline.
Linda spent most of her youth in Escalon, where she graduated from Escalon High School in 1969. She was active in numerous school clubs, sports, and volunteered at the local hospital as a candy striper. After various jobs, she was hired by Regional Transit in Sacramento, CA, as a Customer Service Rep. Her dedication, people skills, and many Quality Service Awards, led to her eventual promotion as the Customer Service Supervisor for her department. With 26-plus years of faithful service, she was able to retire and relocate to Meridian, Idaho, where she resided until her passing.
She was, by nature, a compassionate and happy person, enjoying life, people, and animals. It was her kindness and fun-loving spirit which drew people in, giving her lasting friendships everywhere she went. Utilizing a natural creative talent, she spent many satisfying hours in painting, sculpting, and creating art out of almost anything. She had a love of the outdoors and a passion for fishing. She was a champion for animals and last volunteered at the Pet Adoption League in Emmett, Idaho.
Survivors include her mother, Gladys Bashline; and her younger sister, Maggie Collett, both of Grand View, Idaho.
She was preceded in death by her father, John S. Marshall; her two brothers, John S. Marshall Jr. and Anthony L. Marshall, III.
Graveside service will be held at Burwood Cemetery in Escalon, on Saturday, April 27, at 12 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Pet Adoption League, 1526 N. Washington, Emmett, ID 83617.
