MARGARET M. MARSHALL - COLCHESTER - Margaret M. Marshall, 78, a longtime resident of Colchester, died peacefully at home with family by her side on Thursday, May 29, 2014. As she spent her life in devotion to Our Lord Jesus, it was only fitting that she went to be with Him on Ascension Thursday. Margaret was born in Glasgow, Scotland, on Dec. 7, 1935, the daughter of Ronald and Bridget Mary (Molloy) McAllister. On Aug. 20, 1960, she was married at St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church in Riverside, Conn., to Albert Edgar Marshall who predeceased her on Feb. 13, 2004. Margaret was known for her jovial personality, her beautiful smile and her lilting Scottish accent. She was a parishioner for many years at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church and at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Colchester. Prior to living in Vermont, Margaret was a resident of Fairfield, Conn., and was a parishioner at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church. She was a member of the Stamford, Conn., Highland Kiltie Band, and judged several regional highland dancing competitions as a member of the Scottish Official Board of Highland Dancing. Margaret is survived by three children, Margaret "Peggy" A. Marshall and Steven Petriella of Madison, Conn., Julie C. Marshall and Bill Wetherbee of Colchester, and John C. Marshall of Colchester; one grandson, Joseph Albert Petriella of Madison, Conn.; her sister, Veronica Regan of Derby, Conn.; her brother, Patrick McAllister and his wife, Anita of Norwalk, Conn.; in-laws, Jean McAllister and Walter Merritt; and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her sisters, Marjorie and Mary Catherine McAllister; and her brothers, Peter and John McAllister. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, June 3, 2014, at 11 a.m. at Holy Cross Catholic Church on Church Road in Colchester. Arrangements are with the LaVigne Funeral Home and Cremation Service, 132 Main St., in Winooski. Online condolences can be shared with the family at www.lavignefuneralhome.com.
