Mrs. Wanda Lynn Marshall, 86, of Tangier Island, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, July 2, 2020, from Peninsula Regional Medical Center.
Born on Tangier Dec. 27, 1933, she was a daughter of the late Charles Melvin and Virginia Brimer Wheatley. Her husband, Teddy R. Marshall, preceded her in death on February 12, 1968.
She was the owner and operator of Wanda’s Gift Shop on Tangier, which she started on her front porch in the early 1980s. It flourished into a labor of love that she poured her heart into for over 30 years.
She was a member of the New Testament Church on Tangier where she faithfully played the piano for many years and supported many pro-life missions. She was very creative and enjoyed crocheting and crafting during the winter months. She also enjoyed traveling with her children to the Holy Land and Japan, to name a few. Most of all, she cherished time spent with her family and friends.
She is survived by her children, Beverly Thorne and husband, John, of Crisfield, Md., Gina Crockett and husband, Robert, of Onancock, and Teddy Ross Marshall Jr. and wife, Jennifer, of Tangier; son-in-law, William Thomas Eskridge Jr., of Tangier; grandchildren, April Thornton/Chris, Jonathan Thorne/Sarah Boan, Tommy Eskridge/Claudine, Miriam Anderson/Andy, Kara Crockett/Kelvin Mcmillan, Megan Pinner/Luke, Morgan Arnold/Tyson, Travis Marshall, and Devin Marshall; 20 great-grandchildren; several nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends.
In addition to her parents and her husband, she was preceded in death by her daughter, Pamela Marshall Eskridge, on Nov. 28, 2015, and two sisters, Mary Jane Waldron and Zella Parks.
A memorial service will be held Sunday, July 12, 2020, at 1:30 p.m., at the New Testament Church on Tangier, where the family will receive friends from 1 to 1:30 p.m. Elder Duane Crockett will officiate and Glenn Pruitt will give the eulogy.
Flowers may be sent, or donations in her memory may be made to New Testament Church Missions Funds, P.O. Box 231, Tangier Island, VA 23440.
Arrangements are in the care of Bradshaw & Sons Funeral Home in Crisfield.
