Mary Marshall (Sarjeant) 1950 – 2018

by Sarah Deakin

Dear Friends

It is with a heavy heart that I share the sad news that Mary Marshall (Sarjeant) passed away peacefully in St Luke’s Hospice on Thursday 19th July following a short illness. She was 67.

Many of you will know Mary from her involvement in the campaigns to save Sheffield’s street trees (STAG and Save Crookes/Western Road/Walkley Trees), to restore local democracy (It’s Our City), and from STARTS (Street Tree Art Sheffield) sessions, which she loved to attend.

“Mary SarjeantMary was a staunch supporter of these and many other causes, and she worked tirelessly, often quietly behind the scenes. Her contributions cannot be underestimated and she will be sorely missed by many.

On a personal note, I met Mary under a threatened tree in Burngreave in early 2017 and we became firm friends. I’ll always remember her as the ‘no nonsense’ voice of reason, who absolutely lived life to the full, and was a huge force for good. I will miss her terribly, but have no doubt that she’s already on to her next adventure…

Rest in Peace, dear Mary
1950 – 2018.
