Deborah Sue Marshall

November 21, 1963 ‒ January 31, 2017

Mansfield, Ohio

Deborah “Debbie” Sue Marshall passed away Tuesday, January 31, 2017 in Lexington Court Care Center surrounded by her family. She was 53.

She was born November 21, 1963 to parents Richard & Barbara (Mehl) Beer in Mansfield, and later went on to graduate from Madison High School with the class of 1981. Debbie worked at Bank One for 20 years and with Rinehart-Walter-Danner Insurance for over 13 years as an Insurance Representative until she was no longer able to work.

In spare time, she took pleasure in sewing, cooking, baking, and working in the yard.  Debbie was a very outgoing people person, and could not stand to be sitting still. Her selflessness personality and the way she cared for others will never be forgotten. But above all, Debbie cherished her children and her pride and joy, her dog Bella.

She is survived by her children Ricky Marshall and Whitney (Mitch) Derr; mother Barbara Beer; her dog and pride and joy Bella; grand-puppies Murray and Tillie; and sister Kim (Tom) Hegarty.

In addition to her father, she was preceded in death by her father-in-law Richard Marshall.

Her family will receive friends on Thursday, February 2, 2017 from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Marion Avenue Snyder Funeral Home Finefrock Chapel. A private graveside service will be held in Mansfield Catholic Cemetery at a later date.
