McALESTER — Nancy Marshall, 91, a longtime resident of the McAlester area, died Tuesday, Jan. 1. 2013, at her home.

After a short stint in modeling, she went to work for the United States Army during World War II, performing various administrative services, including dictation for her future husband, John Albert Marshall.

She and her husband eventually moved to the McAlester area in the 1970s, where she took on a role as an administrator for the McAlester Country Club.

She loved watching movies, especially of her late brother, and would occasionally attempt her hand at a game of bridge or the slot machines at the local casino.

Survivors include her son, John Marshall, Huntsville, Texas; her grandsons, Benn Marshall and wife, Melissa, and stepdaughter Kelsey Bloch, Plano, Texas, and Andy Marshall, Austin, Texas; her great-grandson, Beckham Marshall, Plano; her stepdaughter, Jackie Marshall, Lafayette, Calif., and her halfbrothers, Hal Buck, Yacolt, Wash., and Don Buck, Stockton, Calif.
