Nettie Marshall

July 2, 1929 — December 26, 2023

Nettie Mae Overstreet Marshall, 94, of Gainestown died December 26, 2023 at Grove Hill Memorial Hospital. Nettie Mae was born July 2, 1929 to Bonnie and Allie Overstreet in Alma. She was a loving, Christian woman who enjoyed reading her bible and attending church at Jones Chapel Methodist Protestant Church where she was a founding member. Nettie Mae was also a member of Jones Chapel Trio where she shared her love of singing gospel music along with singers, Yvonne Bryan and Louise Overstreet and musicians Doug Palmer and Paulette Autry.

Nettie Mae found peace in sitting outside watching the hummingbirds flit around. She enjoyed tending to her flowers and produce in her garden as well as cooking a delicious meal for her loved ones. She was an excellent baker as well - her plum cake will be dearly missed by her family. Nettie Mae was also a talented seamstress, having worked at Vanity Fair as well as enjoying quilting and cross-stitching in her free time; she has left behind many handmade treasures that will be cherished by her loved ones for generations to come.
