It is with overwhelming sadness that I announce the death of my beautiful husband, Robert Clayton Marshall (born 9/10/1946, died 4/19/2024); father to Steven (Valerie) and David (Marissa); beloved Baba to Miles and Cooper; son, brother, uncle, cousin, neighbor, and loyal friend. To all of you who visited, called, messaged, nourished our bodies and souls, I will be forever indebted for the love you showed and shared with Robert. Many times, those seemingly small acts renewed his courage and spirit. It is with so much gratitude that I thank Robert’s medical team: At Texas Oncology in 2022, Dr J Landon Smith and RN Isabella Beuken Berry; and at UCLA (2022-2024), Dr Alexandra Drakaki, NP Lidia Lopez, Dr Sid Padia, Dr Amar Kishan, Dr Anjani Mattai, Dr Daniel Puneky, and most especially Robert’s palliative care physician, Dr Teresa Khoo. To all of you, I send a heartfelt “thank you” for your care and compassion during Robert’s treatments. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to either UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center ( or the Legacy Fund at Sigma Nu Educational Foundation ( Rest well, my darling, light of my life, love of my life. I’ll see you in my dreams. XOXO


Leave the earth with beauty

Earth specializes in soil transformation, an environmentally-friendly alternative to burial and cremation. Over a 45-day process, we gently transform a body into nutrient-rich soil. We then send this soil to our local conservation land where it’s used for restoration projects such as reforestation and nourishing challenged ecosystems.
