Merry Christine Stocks Marshall

merry3Merry Christine Stocks Marshall 61 was born December 24, 1952 in Seattle Washington. Merry passed away on April 1st 2014 at Saliems Adult Family Home in Kent Washington with both daughters by her side.

She is survived by her daughters Cara Marshall and Christine Hofschulte, her grandchildren Kaden Hofschulte and Caylee Hofschulte, father George Griffith Stockwell, brothers James Stocks, John Stockwell, George Stockwell, and Guy Stockwell, and sister Judith Chamberlain.

Merry had a stroke 7 years ago that limited her ability to help herself but ultimately she passed away peacefully in her sleep from natural causes.

Merry was an amazing person, mother, and Nanny. She was very talented in drawing,
merry4sculpting, and dancing. She always was there when you needed her and anyone who had the luxury to be part of her life never had to question her love for you. She loved so much that she always provided ever lasting memories when you were with her.
Merry had requested to not have a funeral service and she will be cremated. Part of her ashes will be scattered at Alki Beach
Merry2by her daughters.
Cara
Our mother was a loving and caring soul.
From her daughters…we both know we will always keep her in our hearts. The 3 musketeers shall never part. My mom had a lot of phrases she would say. This one I’m sharing and sending to everyone’s way.
“When I pass I want you all to be aware. When you say goodnight, remember sweet dreams when you get there.”
Christine
Mom you were my rock and my everything. I will always cherish our time together. I will never forget that no matter how sick you got that you were always able to say “I love you more”. I love you forever and will miss you deeply.

    Everyone knows in the back of their mind that death is inevitable, but it’s not something that we think about daily. Once in awhile we are blessed to have people in our lives that appear immortal to us. I believe they are angels disguised as humans, personally. Aunt Merry was, and is one of those angels. God called her home, and now she is in one of those most amazing places. Death is not the end of life, but the beginning of an eternal one. While we miss her because she’s gone, just remember, we will see her again one day, even though that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt. It just goes to show how precious life really is. Christine and Cara, you both are truly great people. I’m so sorry for everything you are going through, you guys are in my heart and my prayers. Love you.

  • Guy says:

    There are no words that can express the love I have for my sister. She was one of a kind. One of the most influential people in my life. I’m happy that she is no longer in pain and can now rest in a better place. My heart goes out to my niece Christine and her family most of all. I know how difficult these past few years have been. To Cara, My Dad, Judy, and the rest of my family. Love.

    Merry and I shared our teen years , carried babies, cried and laughed together. She was more than a sister in law, she was my sister. I love her dearly. Cara and Christine my heart is with you. How hard this must be for Merry was so young. If there is any way I can help in any way I am here for you. I love you and my prayers go to Merry’s family. May God be with all of you. Rest in peace dear Merry until we meet again.

    Cara and Christine, I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. You don’t know me but your mother stood up for me when I got married. She was such a friend and we had good times together.
    Cara I was there when you were just a little baby and sometimes took care of you so your mom could have a break.
    When I had my second child Christopher I couldn’t find the soft kind of binki that babies liked. Your mom found Cara’s in the toy box and boiled it so Chris could use it. When Christine was born I boiled it up and gave it back…lol It sounds funny but was very necessary. Lott’s of Love to you all.
