Doris Theda (Hand) Marshall

Doris Theda (Hand) Marshall, 83, known to her family as Mema, of Reynoldsville, PA, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 3, 2018, as a patient of Penn Highlands DuBois Hospital.

Doris was born on June 13, 1934, in Detroit, MI, to the late Clarence and Frances (Corey) Hand.

On August 27, 1955, she married William C. Marshall. He preceded her in passing on November 11, 2008.

Doris was exceptionally dedicated to her work throughout her life. She held a position as cook at the Treasure Lake Country Club for over 25 years. She was also known for her delicious baked goods.

Doris was a long time member of the Eagles Club in Falls Creek. She loved to play Bingo there as well. Her favorite show to watch was Survivor and she also enjoyed the Olympics; her family and friends knew better than to call her during the hours that those programs were airing.

She was selfless, willing to do anything for anyone and she was always much more concerned about others before herself. Even in her final days, while being treated in the hospital, she would ask her granddaughter, who is a nurse, about all the other people she was caring for.

Doris had an extraordinary personality in which she loved her family so much as well as her schnauzer dogs, especially her dog Missy. She enjoyed gardening both flowers and vegetables, especially tomatoes. She could also keep houseplants living for decades.

When Doris and William were younger, he would travel for work and she loved being able to travel around with him. She loved playing games and especially cards, specifically 500 Rummy. When she was having trouble breathing, she managed to find the energy to play cards.

She loved hot dogs and ice cream, and her grandchildren have fond memories of riding in the golf cart through Treasure Lake eating those items with her.

Doris is survived by one son, Allen D. Marshall; five grandchildren, Allen “Tink” Marshall, Kelly (Anthony) Nissel, Tonya Marshall, Charles “C.J.” Marshall and Holly Marshall; and ten great-grandchildren, with two more on the way.

In addition to her husband and parents, she is preceded in death by three brothers, Joseph, Alvin, and Lovel; and seven sisters, Virginia, Leona, Elaine, Marion “Pearl”, Almina, Jeanette, and Helen.

As Doris requested, her funeral arrangements are remaining private and held at her family’s convenience.

Memorial contributions may be made in her name to American Red Cross.

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Snyder – d’Argy Funeral Home, 206 E. Main St., Reynoldsville, PA, 15851.
