Florence J. (Lame) Marshall, age 92 of Acushnet, passed away peacefully at Alden Court on Saturday, June 6, 2020. She was the wife of the late Ralph Marshall.

Born in Acushnet, the daughter of the late Charles and Bertha (Plaud) Lame, she was a graduate of New Bedford High School and resided most of her life in Acushnet.

Mrs. Marshall was employed as a Records Clerk for several years in the late 1940’s at St. Luke’s Hospital before her family began to blossom and worked at the Kennedy-Donovan Center in New Bedford later in her life. She was also a member of the Acushnet Historical Society. She took classes in cake decorating, stain glass making and decorative painting. As a homemaker for a family of 10 with limited resources at times she made do with what she had but always managed to make it special.

I am so sorry to learn of Florence's passing. I was fortunate enough to work with her at the Kennedy-Donovan Center so many years ago.
I also worked with her Daughter In Law, Karen at Mediplex. The connection of these wonderful people became clear many years later.
To the family of Florence please accept my sincere condolences. The passing of the matriarch leaves an open hole. My heart is sad to learn of this.
May fond memories always bring joy and love.
Marilyn East
