NEWPORT BEACH — Former Newport Beach Mayor Doreen Demond Marshall died of natural causes at her home Nov. 9.
The longtime Lido Isle resident, who served on the City Council for nearly a decade, was also known for her charitable contributions. She was 88.
Marshall was born Doreen Demond on Dec. 22, 1922, in Los Angeles to Earle Frank Demond and Lucile Long Demond. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from UCLA, where she was a member of the Pi Beta Phi sorority. Marshall also did post-graduate work at Columbia University.
After spending time in New York City, Marshall returned to Southern California and married Robert "Bob" J. Marshall, who also attended UCLA. The two married in Santa Ana shortly after Bob Marshall returned from serving in World War II.
The two lived for a time at Bob Marshall's Tustin home among orange groves, which he farmed. They later sold the land and moved to Lido Isle in Newport Harbor.
