Obituary for Mary Ann Marshall

Mary Ann Marshall, 89 years of age, passed on Wednesday Jan 13, 2022 at Medilodge Nursing Care facility.

Mary Ann was born on Oct 11, 1932 in Clifton Springs, New York to the late Stanleigh Cook and Adelaide Benson. She was the third of nine children, four preceded her in death. Mary Ann was educated in upstate New York.

Mary Ann was married three times with six children: all boys. Her third marriage to Robert Marshall lasted 53 years until the time of her passing. She raised her family having lived in Colorado, Kansas, New York, Florida, and Texas. In her professional life she was an assistant, or executive assistant with General Dynamics, the Navy, NCR, and Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Mary Ann was a fierce and passionate woman holding fast to her beliefs and defending those she loved. She loved to converse on many topics from religion to politics, and especially on the treatment of animals. Later in life she became a vocal advocate for PETA and participated in an animal rights march in Washington DC in 1989. Her commitment led to her decision to adopt a vegan diet and lifestyle. She enjoyed playing games, debating her passions, and telling everyone she wished she had a baby girl.

Mary Ann leaves behind her loving husband Robert, and children, David, Daniel, Stephen, Mark, Michael (passed away in June 2021), and Derek: 13 grandchildren, and a host of siblings, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. The family asks for all to join the Cook reunion in August 2022 to celebrate their love for Mary Ann.
