Gertrude “Gertie” Marshall, 76, of Warrenton, our dearly beloved mother and grandmother, was called home on Tuesday, October 19, 2021.
Gertrude was born on March 27, 1945, in Warrenton, Virginia to the late Albert Champ and Margaret Davis.
Gertrude attended Fauquier County Public Schools and in her early years she was employed by the Town of Warrenton as a school crossing guard, then by ITC Solar and the Warrenton Training Center.
Gertrude married Douglas Marshall Jr. on August 6, 1960, and from that union four children were born: Brenda, Evelyn, Douglas III, and Dale.
She leaves behind her husband of 60 years, Douglas, to mourn her. Gertrude is survived by three daughters, Brenda and Evelyn of Warrenton and Dale of District Heights, Maryland; a son, Douglas III (Anne) of Marshall; her sister, Pamela Davis of Brandy Station; her brother-in-law, Lenard Marshall of Orange; nine grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren who were her pride and joy.
In addition to her parents, Gertrude was preceded in death by her brother, Robert Starks.
Gertie was a loving person. She looked forward to holidays, when she would prepare large meals and spend time with family and friends.
God has touched her, and she is at rest, no more pain, no more worries, just in peace now.
The family will receive friends at 11 a.m. Saturday, October 23, at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton. A service will follow at noon at the funeral home with Reverend James Brown presiding, followed by interment at Bright View Cemetery near Warrenton. A repass will not follow afterwards because of COVID-19.
