Our much-loved mother, grandmother, sister and friend, Joyce Houston Marshall, 64, died unexpectedly on June 12, 2016, after a sudden illness. She was born February 6, 1952, in Panguitch, Utah, to "Mat" and Hazel Houston, the 3rd of 4 children. She graduated from Panguitch High School and attended Southern Utah University where she studied Sociology. Joyce married Tom Marshall on October 11, 1968, and they had 8 children. They later divorced. Joyce's children and grandchildren were the center of her world, her purpose and pride, but she was quick to give unconditional love to many others who considered her "Mom." Her house was also always full of animals that were much loved. While raising her kids, Joyce readily gave to her community--mostly in connection to her children's interests, activities and needs. She was a cub scout leader, soccer mom, dance mom, PTA parent and sports booster, to name just a few. For many years she donated her time, skills and baked goods to her community. She also served her church in many positions, from Primary to Young Women to Relief Society, but her favorite was always the Nursery. Joyce was also a talented artist, but only privately shared her work. Joyce was a fierce activist, particularly with issues related to her children: civil rights, children's rights and LGBT rights. She worked to raise awareness around issues of childhood sexual abuse, mental illness, addiction and suicide prevention. Her recent work with Survivors of Loved Ones to Suicide (SOLOS) and Mama Dragons touched many lives. Dozens of people have reached out to share that her love and support changed their lives and saved lives. She will be mourned by many, but especially her children and grandchildren. She is survived by her children, Carson Marshall, of Seattle; Susan (Richie) Livingston of Goodyear, Arizona; Clint Marshall of Cedar City; Tim (Natalie) Marshall of Panguitch; Sandy Brown of Cedar City; Mike (Mona) Marshall of Kanab; Chrissy (Jamie) Strand of Enoch; brother Randy (Nancy) Houston of Panguitch; sister Liz (Terry) Trujillo of Kearns; 21 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents; sister, Geneil; and daughter, Shelly. A private family memorial service was held June 16, 2016. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made on her behalf to one of these organizations she supported: The Human Rights Campaign, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), and Mission Dei in Salt Lake City, missiondeislc.com.
