Patricia Marshburn, age 91, died on May 17 following a short illness. She was born to Howard and Emma Dowd of Manchester CT on February 27, 1926. She was preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, Joseph H. Marshburn, Jr., her son Joseph H. Marshburn, III and her sister, Dorothy Prentice of Lakeland, Fl. Pat’s husband was an executive with the Coca Cola Co. This resulted in several moves throughout the course of his career. They settled in Atlanta in 1968. She was devoted to her family and her church, Saint Martin in the Fields. She was a long time member of Rivermont Country Club. She will be dearly missed by those who had the pleasure of knowing her. It can truthfully be said that she “never met a stranger.” She is survived by her daughter, Chris Ford of Pittsburgh, PA, her son and daughter-in-law, John and Delynna Marshburn of Dunwoody, GA and her daughter-in-law Phyllis Marshburn of Sandy Springs GA. Also surviving are eight grandchildren. The family would also like to thank the staff at Dogwood Forest of Dunwoody for their kind and compassionate care. There will be a service celebrating her life at Saint Martin in the Fields Church located at 3110 Ashford Dunwoody Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30319 on Sunday, May 21 at 1:00 P.M. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Saint Martin in the Fields Church or Athens Canine Rescue.
