Eunice was born Oct. 19, 1937, to the late Amos Alexander O’Dell and Minnie Annie O’Dell in Hiwassee, Va. Eunice was a faithful and godly wife, mother, and grandmother who most cherished the special times spent with her beloved family. She loved to walk in her neighborhood and was passionate about visiting and ministering to people. Over the years Eunice has been a faithful church member serving as Awana leader, Deacon’s wife, Sunday School teacher, and choir member. At the time of her death, Eunice attended Gethsemane Baptist Church where she enjoyed worshiping weekly with her family in Christ.
Along with her parents, Eunice was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Robert Daniel Marshall; her brother, Otis Alexander O’Dell and wife Lois O’Dell; her brother, Junior Ray O’Dell (her twin); and her sister, Annie Zelma Jonas.
She is survived by her sister Francis Orin Thompson; her brother, Elbert Norris O’Dell; her two daughters, Debby Marshall Hodges and husband Dean Hodges, and Penny Renee Marshall; and her son, Daniel Keith Marshall and wife Lisa Marshall. She is also survived by her four grandchildren, Hunter Cole Marshall and wife Molly Marshall, Madeline Marshall Denny and husband William Denny, Susanna Marshall Thompson and husband Andrew Thompson, and Justice Isaac Marshall; and her four great-grandchildren, Charlotte Marshall, Evelyn Thompson, Caroline Marshall, and Walker Marshall.
