Lisa Marshall, former Western Albemarle English and philosophy teacher, gardener, watercolorist, book club member, pianist, wife, mother, grandmother, and Crozetian, suffered a very bad stroke April 6, 2016.

This campaign is to help the Marshall family with the sudden costs of making their home handicap accessible, as well as Lisa's intensive rehabilitation therapy schedule, home-care, medications, and anything else that can make her more comfortable in this challenging time.

Thank you so much for your support and generosity.

Hi Everyone! I'm sorry it's been so long since we've updated. Your donations have made my mom's transition to her new normal so much better than it could have been and we are so grateful. After almost a year of therapy she finished her formal rehab a few months ago (she did about two month's of inpatient and the rest with home health and then eventually outpatient) she is able to use her left arm a small amount and regained use of her left leg enough to walk short distances (think from one room to another) with a four-pronged cane, and can even handle one or two stairs.

We have a lovely aide who comes to be with her most weekday afternoons, but my dad is her primary caregiver and has done an amazing job with this exhausting new role. Her vision impairment and physical limitations still keep her from a lot of her old pastimes but she listens to a lot of audiobooks and is lucky enough to have many friends that will take her on excursions, lunches and other fun activities.

I'm attaching a photo of her this weekend with her youngest granddaughter, Lottie, who loves riding on her lap in the wheelchair, as they waited for the Crozet fireworks show at the park.

Thank you again for all you did for us and for your continued thoughts and prayers.
Lisa & her smallest grandchild this 4th

The total is even higher since I took this photo of my mom and dad at the top of our new ramp yesterday. Sincere thanks to each of you who has given so generously to support Lisa's long road of rehabilitation. It means so much to her and us all. #gfmcheck #thankateacher

Wow. Just wow. We are stunned at the generosity of you all. I hardly even know what to say. THANK YOU! We are in tears reading these donations and comments and Facebook shares--just so grateful for the amazing community our mother has built for us. I had hoped for a few friends to chip in to help us build a ramp and get a few threshold covers. This is going to help us make mom SO much more comfortable. Thank you, all! I will continue posting updates on her CaringBridge site https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/lisamarshall7.

One of my all time favorite teachers. 9th grade and 12th grade English. What an an amazing person. She sparked my love for travel and Italian art early on. Will never forget her love for Fabio and Michaelangelo's "David". Praying for Ms. Marshall's recovery and for the Marshall family.

The things you randomly find browsing on Gofundme! I will definitely never forget you, Mrs. Marshall! For you not turning me in when I brought my best friend to WAHS (and your class) after failing to get permission from the principal to you giving me grief EVERYDAY because you never believed that I smelled like cigarettes because both my parents smoked constantly. I hope you have a full and speedy recovery and I'm happy to see so many people have donated. By the way... I did always smell like cigarettes because of my parents! I wouldn't have lied to you! :)

Prayers for you Mrs. Marshall and your family. Mrs. Marshall is one of those teachers that you never forget. She inspired her students to want more and her contribution to who I have become is invaluable.

Mrs. Marshall is one of the most beautiful generous of spirit teachers of kindness I ever knew. I can recall her comfort and counsel, and wish for miraculous healing of white light and true serenity for Lisa. May she regain 100% of her ability and joy by the Grace and Love of merciful Creator. Bless all of you for care and support of eachother. I love you and keep your health in my prayers. Amen
