  • Notes 
    • This is my wife. I don't need any other documentation about her. - David W. Marshall, Sr.


    • Betsy was in Palmetto Richland Hospital when she died. She was in the hospital for two weeks as they diagnosed her condition. It was Metastatic Breast Cancer. She declined rapidly and on Monday morning, September 17, 2018 she took her last breath.

      I was by her bed, along with my daughter, Susan, and my son, David, when she died. At about 10:30 am she became agitated and struggled for breath. She coughed raggedly and struggled to get a breath. Then she settled down for a few minutes. At 11:00 am she was again agitated and struggled to breath. She coughed two or three times, raised her head up off the bed and lowered it back down. She stopped breathing. I felt for her heart and it was not beating. She was gone.

      She was a good woman and worked with hundreds of children at Lexington United Methodist Church over the years, guiding their faith journeys.

      I miss her greatly.

      She was cremated and interred in the Greenlawn Memorial Park Main Columbarium II 3 C
