Althea DeCastor Marshall Dies in New York City

Althea DeCastor Marshall

Althea DeCastor Marshall was born Dec. 24, 1928, on the beautiful Island of St. Croix, United States Virgin Islands.  Althea was the daughter of Mary Elizabeth Samuel John and Joseph Decastor Marshall, both deceased.  She worked at several jobs before retiring from government on St. Croix.

Althea had strong family values.  She was a vibrant and feisty woman who was dedicated to her family and friends.  Althea was known and seen in and around Kennedy.  Many of her neighbors would see her on the porch and yell “Althe” and stop and talk to her when they were on their way to Pueblo.  She always made you laugh and many times you laughed so hard it would hurt.  She was known for cooking and loving boil fish and funji, red pea soup and Kalaloo.

Today we will forever remember Althea DeCastro Marshall for the laughs and beautiful smile she left upon us.  She died July 4th at Fieldston Lodge Nursing Home in the Bronx, N.Y.
