Mrs. Marshall was my son’s math teacher. He said she was one of his favorite teachers as he learned so much from her. After she retired I had the pleasure of working with her when she subbed in my school. She subbed for me multiple times as well. Always loved having her sub for me because she followed my plans. Had the pleasure of playing cards with her at Mt. Zion too. She was always a delight to talk and visit with. Rest In Peace Betty. You will be missed.

Mrs. Marshall was one of my favorite teachers and a wonderful, caring lady. I credit her for changing my ideas about education and how learning is a life-time endeavor. She was supportive and encouraging and also stern and tough as events warranted. She was always inquisitive and friendly when I saw her in later years. She was an amazing woman and will be missed.

I had Mrs. Marshall for 6th grade Math and always enjoyed having her at least for one class. She was always very kind to me, always asked how my day was going.. I could keep going. She was always one of my favorites. Rest in peace Mrs. Marshall. I'll bet she'd be tickled by seeing what a positive effect she had on all of her students and the people around her.
