E. Jeanette Marshall

E. Jeanette Marshall, age 81, of Hudson, passed away at her daughter's home in Prior Lake, MN, holding her children's hands, after a 7-year battle with Parkinson's disease, on January 30, 2019.

Jeanette was born to Nels U. and Edna Nelson in Kenmare, ND, a small town she wrote a book about in retirement. Jeanette taught regular and special education for many years. She was wedded to John for over 60 years. Jeanette raised her children and grandchildren with the belief that "Perfect was good"!

Jeanette's favorite vacation was one where she could experience the awesomeness of God's creations, with a cup of coffee in her hand. At the end of Jeanette's life, she shared: "We're not crying for the one who died, for she is in God's loving arms. We cry for ourselves, because we are sad and we will miss her."

Proceeded by father, Nels U. (Alice) Nelson: mother, Edna Nelson: sisters, Marion, Lorraine: step-sister, Carol; nephew, James and niece, Mary. Survived by husband, John: children, Michael (Debby) Marshall, Debra Marshall; grandchildren, Emma Marshall, Stephanie (Ryan) Krieger, Richard Marshall, Kyrsten (Craig) Fisher; 4 great-grandchildren; other family and friends.
