Carolyn Marshall Carolyn (Callee) Marshall, age 91, passed away peacefully on April 17, 2014 in Austin, Texas, surrounded by family and friends.
She was an accomplished artist who focused on sailing and marine scenes as well as large abstracts now known as Mid-Century art. She made notable pen and ink drawings of sailboats, African figures, animals, and Texas scenes. Later printmaking and etching held her principal interest.
Born on October 17, 1922 in New Orleans, Callee spent her youth in Bay St. Louis and then Gulfport, Mississippi when her family moved there to be closer to her father Carl Marshall Sr.’s law practice. Her grandfather Charles Marshall was a prominent figure in the Gulf Coast as the Superintendent of the L&N Railroad from Mobile to New Orleans, and he settled the family in Bay St. Louis in the early 1900’s. Her mother Lillian Chapman Marshall was the oldest daughter of ten children by William and Caroline Chapman of Bay St. Louis.
Callee was an avid sailor from an early age and enjoyed the thrill of racing. She went to high school in New Orleans, and then during World War II she attended Newcomb College (now part of Tulane University) where she received a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts. After the war, she moved to New York and continued her art studies at the Art Student’s League and Columbia University.
As a flight attendant for Pan Am based in New York for years, Callee flew all over the world, including long trips to Europe, South Africa and India. During her time off, she continued to work on her art. She became a travel consultant for American Express in New York, and when the company offered her a position as manager of a new travel office in Houston, she accepted the opportunity and delighted in setting up custom tours for her clients in exotic locations.
Later, Callee moved to Austin to pursue and receive a Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Texas. In Austin she renewed her childhood love of sailing by moving close to Lake Travis and joining the Austin Yacht Club. She had a lovely home overlooking the lake with living quarters on the top floor and a lower floor devoted to her artwork and workshop. The Yacht Club was the focus of her entertainment, and she owned an Irwin keel boat that she loved to race and sail with friends on evening cocktail cruises. She was an Irwin dealer so she enjoyed mixing business with pleasure. Callee was also a writer for the Austin America-Statesman newspaper.
Callee was preceded in death by her parents Carl and Lillian Chapman Marshall, her brother Chapman (Tack) Marshall and his wife Mag, and her nephew Philip Marshall and his two children Alex and Macaila. Callee is survived by her brother Carl Marshall, Jr.; his children Bob Marshall (Julie), their two children Rob and Valerie, and Virginia (Marshall) Morgan (Dave) and their two children Jack and Carly; and by Tack’s daughters, Margaret Marshall, Leslie Marshall M.D., and Carolyn Marshall Dawnay and her three sons, Lewis, Nick and Tom.
A memorial service is being held at the Bay Waveland Yacht Club in Bay St. Louis on April 3, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. for friends and family.
