Family-Placed Death Notice

MARSHALL, Angie Angie Fitts Marshall Mrs. Angie Fitts Marshall passed away Wednesday, July 3, 2013 in Americus, Georgia. She was born August 8, 1921 in Dawson, Georgia to Maribel and James Walker Fitts and soon moved to Americus. She was a graduate of the University of Georgia where she was a member of the Phi Mu Sorority. She married Tom Marshall, a young lawyer with whom she had grown up, in 1946 and traveled to New Orleans on her honeymoon to watch the Georgia Bulldogs play in the Sugar Bowl! She devoted herself to raising three daughters, keeping up with a busy husband and participating in community projects. In 1974 Angie and Tom moved to Atlanta where he served on the Georgia Court of Appeals and later the Georgia Supreme Court. While in Atlanta she became a devoted volunteer at the Shepherd Center, putting in many hours at the Center's gift shop. Always blessed with an eye for beauty, she loved to paint and became quite an accomplished artist, taking lessons and painting constantly. Although she was tiny in stature, barely five feet tall, she had a presence about her that commanded respect. Maybe it was the high heels that she never left home without. Blessed with a fun-loving personality, she loved to dance - especially with her 5 grandsons. She was a member of St. John's Anglican Church of Americus and also the Colonial Dames, DAR, Ocean Forest Golf Club, the Capital City Club and the Piedmont Driving Club. Preceded in death by her husband of 57 years Justice Thomas Oliver Marshall, Jr., she is survived by her three daughters: Mary Marshall, Anne Peagler (George), and Ellen Beard (Duncan).
