Obituary of Dorothy Marshall

Dorothy Joan Marshall (Greenwood)

Dorothy Marshall of Duhamel formerly of the Rosalind District, passed away Wednesday June 15, 2022, in Camrose. The eldest daughter of Adrian Greenwood and Joan Greenwood, Dorothy lived most of her life in the greater Camrose area.  Dorothy will be remembered as Mum, Grandma, Sister, Aunty, Cousin, and Friend to many.

 Dorothy lived her faith daily, firmly believing our lives should show God's love.  For Dorothy, faith in Community took many guises over the years, and many roles, some of which were as a leader; participating in discussions with School Boards, advocating as a parent for the value of rural school education, and being a founding board member for the Camrose Women's' Shelter.  Dorothy was an educator; sharing her knowledge, as a guest speaker at many Ag. Society sponsored events, and local "Fall Focus", with her often humorous tales of life on the farm, and speaking to Students on Organic Farming and being strong stewards of the land.  As a servant, for decades being that anonymous person who rolled your coins as the treasurer of the "Camrose Merry Christmas Fund".

Dorothy was a long-term member of St. Andrew's Anglican Church in Camrose, contributing to the Parish in the same manner, with various roles in the Vestry, teaching Sunday School for over 50 years, and serving as Church treasurer for many years.  More recently Dorothy represented the Diocese of Edmonton serving on the Social Justice Committee, and as the Diocese Representative for the Primate's Fund, roles that provided wonderful opportunities for her to continue to live out her faith.

Celebrating her life are her family, Colby (Myra)Marshall, Lyric, and Gabriel; Robyn (Jon) Thompson, Betsy, Laura, Faith, and Rose; Craig (Abby) Marshall, Beatrice, and Josephine; Alyson (Jordan) Laverne, Payton, Asher, and Rory; and Leah Marshall.  Joining with them in celebration are her siblings, Leonard Greenwood (Terumi Sekihara) Sheila (Ron) Hamilton, Irene (Brian) Green, and David (Benita) Greenwood and her dear friends Betty and Al Dyck, along with numerous Nieces, Nephews, Cousins, and Friends.

A service of Thanksgiving will be held Sunday June 26 at 3 p.m. at St. Andrew's Anglican Church - 4713 50 St, Camrose, AB T4V 1P2
