Marsha Louise Alston

February 1, 1952 ~ January 30, 2022 (age 69)


Mrs. Marsha Louise Alston, 69, of Charleston, WV, received her heavenly wing, January 30, 2022, at CAMC Memorial CPUICU. She was born February 1, 1952, to the late Charles and Louise Craig Jones. 

Marsha graduated from Charleston High School and OIC Training Academy. She retired in 2008 from FedEx after 23 years of remarkable service following 11 years at Halls Trucking.  

On April 4, 1976, Marsha joined George W. Alston in a marriage partnership. If you said one name you also said the other, George and Marsha, Marsha and George, with a smile on your face. Within this partnership were many adventures, great accomplishments, and an abundance of family fun. 

Marsha was an avid flower gardener, crafter, and decorator. Her home and gifts to family and friends reflected her joy of sharing. Marsha was not only creative, but wise, compassionate, positive, thoughtful, and generous, especially with her love to anyone in need of a helping hand. Her contagious laugh, words of wisdom, shared moments and loving touch will be missed by everyone that called her Marsha Jones from childhood to Marsha Alston the past 46 years. Marsha will always be known as loving.  

Marsha is preceded in death by her parents, brothers, Donald Jones and Virgil Jones, sister, Linda Jones, daughter, Georgeann Alston Youngblood, son, William Leon Alston, and brothers-in-law, Ellis Bell and Ronald Dean. 

Remaining to cherish all the wonderful memories of her life are her husband, George Alston, sister, Delores Jean Bell of Ohio, grandchildren, Jessica Ekhomu of Massachusetts, and Alena Sharp and Jonathan Youngblood of Georgia, great-grandsons, Christian and Zen of Georgia, sisters and brothers in-law, a host of nieces, nephews, and a plethora of other relatives and friends. 

The family requests all attendees to follow COVID protocols, including wearing a mask at visitation and during the service. 

The Celebration of Life will be held at Abundant Life Ministries, 1534 Washington St., E., Charleston, WV, with visitation from to Noon to 1 p.m. and service immediately following. Interment will be at Spring Hill Cemetery.
