HELEN DECOURCEY MARSHALL
1912 - 2001
Helen DeCourcey Marshall was a caring woman who earned and deserved the respect of those who knew her. She was a kind person who modeled acceptance for all and freely gave of herself. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren found her a perceptive source of wisdom and steadiness. No one lacked for a place in her home or her heart.
Born in Nez Pearce, Idaho, on October 24, 1912, Helen lived her life in northern Wyoming. The daughter of Thomas DeCourcey and Magdalena DeCourcey Gilbertz, she was raised in her mother=s extended family of German immigrants on a ranch near Savageton, Wyoming. Her early years were spent in the country. Helen boarded in Nebraska for the first three years of high school, but graduated from Campbell County High School in Gillette in 1929. She then completed her normal training in order to teach. Helen=s first one room school position was near Savageton and she would sometimes reminisce, telling of stoking wood stoves, riding some distance to school on horseback and escaping occasionally to a country dance. Although she enjoyed the comforts of home and family in her later life, she felt herself to have been quite independent and adventuresome as a young woman.
Helen married Nolan Wilmot Marshall on April 7, 1934, in Hot Springs, South Dakota. From that 63 year union there were four children, Marilyn Kirkman, Colorado Springs, Colorado; Sandra Olsson, San Antonio, Texas; Linda Robbins, Sheridan, Wyoming; and Patrick Marshall, Spring Branch, Texas. Helen occupied herself with things of the home, she sewed for years, tended her lawn, flowers, and other people=s children. She remembered every family birthday and cared for her pets. She was a religious woman who prayed daily. She did not work outside the home, but assisted her husband, Nolan, with the Big Horn Music Service, a coin-operated jukebox/game enterprise serving Sheridan, Gillette, Buffalo and other small communities.
Helen joins her husband; her parents; her older brother, Cornelius; and younger sisters, Margaret Boyle and Leona Koers in eternal life. Her children survive her, as do her brother, Lawrence Gilbertz, her sister-in-law, Verna Ann Gilbertz, her brother-in-law, John Boyle, and her dear friends, Bob and Shirley Generaux. She has eleven grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren.
Please join the family in celebrating her life. Memorial services will be held at Holy Name Church, Sheridan, Wyoming, at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, June 22, 2001, with Monsignor Eugene Sullivan officiating. Burial will be at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 23, 2001, at the Marshall family plot in the Mt. Pisgah Cemetery in Gillette with Father Karl Millis officiating. Kane Funeral Home is handling the arrangements. Memorials may be given to a charity assisting the poor and needy.
