This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Following is the obituary of the artist, published in The Daily Spectrum of St. George, Utah and submitted by Linda Flowers, daughter of the artist.

Beverly Canty-Marshall was born in Middle River, Minnesota on January 10, 1932 the only daughter of Oliver and Clara Canty. Her mother’s family homesteaded from Norway to the Red River Valley in northwestern Minnesota-her father’s family were of French Canadian-Spanish bask descent. She passed away at the age of 76 on April 13, 2008.

Beverly Canty was president of her high school class and captain of the girls basketball team in Middle River, MN. In college she majored in art at the University of Denver and The University of Colorado, Boulder. She was working on her teaching certificate when she met and married her husband of 54 years Jack Stanton Marshall. Together they had seven children and lived in several US states, including Colorado, Michigan, South Carolina, Maryland, Illinois, and spent the last 25 years in St. George and Ivins Utah- minus one year when they moved briefly to Ontario, Canada.

Beverly always enjoyed joining local art guilds and taking art classes wherever they lived. When they moved to St. George Utah in 1981 she was able to devote herself to her art passions-drawing, painting, and even sculpting occasionally. During the years from 1981 to 2007 she became a prolific artist. This was after her seven children were raised. Beverly then spent most of her time figure drawing, painting portraits in watercolor, and doing small watercolor landscapes depicting her travels in the desert southwest and western United States.

She was fond of all the fine arts, poetry, people, and nature and enjoyed reading, hiking, camping, and exploring throughout her life. She liked art that showed a fine combination of feeling and intellect, whether it be representational or abstract. Beverly was part of the southern Utah local art community after moving there from Chicago in 1981. She enjoyed several years as a member and president of the Artist’s Co-op in Ancestor Square, in St. George Utah. She was a past president of the Southwestern Utah Arts Council, a member of the former Artist's Gallery in Washington City, and was a Citizen of  the Year for Washington City.

She exhibited and sold her art at many outdoor festivals in the area including Washington, St. George and Kayenta Utah. She was instrumental in advancing art in the elementary schools in Washington County, Utah and donated many hours to this cause. She had an active role in Art in the Park at Worthen Park in St. George Utah every year. She was a member of the Visual Arts Committee, a branch of the St. George Arts Commission. She participated in the Art Committee Exhibit and the Regional Art Exhibit at the St. George Art Museum. Her work was also included in the "Christmas in Dixie" exhibit at Zions Bank Staircase Gallery and the "The Women in Art" at Dixie College.

Her work was part the American Association of University Women's Statewide Traveling Exhibition. She had a one-woman show at the Las Vegas Art Museum. In 2005 in St. George she also had a one-woman show of her work at the DSC Sears Art Museum Gallery in the Eccles grand foyer. Her work Mountain Woman Desert Fox, is part of the permanent collection of Dixie State College’s Sears Museum Gallery in St. George, Utah.

Beverly was preceded in death by her parents, Oliver and Clara Canty. She was survived by her husband Jack S. Marshall, Ivins, UT, children-Linda (Craig) Flowers, Ivins, Robert (Nancy) Marshall, Illinois, William Marshall, Ivins, Cherlyn Boyce, CO, Steven Marshall, Suzanne (Todd) Snow Jensen,Washington, Barbara (Ahmed) Nabhani, Oman, three brothers Del (Lylah) Canty, CO, Larry (Joyce) Canty, ID., Oliver (Joan) Canty, MN., 18 Grandchildren, and 8 Great Grandchildren.

A memorial service was held at Metcalf Mortuary, 300 W. St. George Blvd. Saturday, April 19, 2008, at 1:00 pm. Beverly struggled bravely in her last 5 years with a devastating disorder called Primary Progressive Aphasia, she gradually lost the ability to speak. Donations can be made in her name to the National Aphasia Association 350 Seventh Avenue-Suite 902, New York, NY, 10001.
