Mrs. Marshall was employed at Electric Wheel as a young woman and secretary to my father, Harold Arnold. Later, she was my teacher at Gem City Business College in Secretarial Science. My father was so pleased I got to learn from the best as he so appreciated her skills. Freida and i spoke many times of the days when she worked at Electric Wheel and all the people we knew in common. I send my deepest sympathy to Mr. Marshall and the family at your loss.

Dr. Marshall and Janice so sorry to hear of your lost. I remember the kind smile and quiet manner of Mrs Marshall when I worked at Gem City. I am sure she will be missed by all.
