This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted October 2005, is from David Smith of Rancho Santa Fe, California.  He has set up a website for the artist:

Mary E. Marshall (MEM) was a distant Aunt of ours and is recognized as a significant American woman artist of her era (listed in Who's Who in American Art, 1937).  My sisters, myself and my Uncle now have a number of her paintings.  We are in the process of discovering more about her.

She was born in Plainfield, Pennsylvania in the 1860's, and resided in Philadelphia for most of her life.  She had an exhibit at the Woodmere Gallery in 1941 in conjunction with another woman artist, Ada Williamson, and we believe that she died in this decade.  Her last address was 2300 Pine Street, Philadelphia. 

She was both a student and taught at  the Pennsylvania  Museum & School of Industrial Art (now the University of Arts' College of Art and Design).  She was also a member of the Plastic Club. She headed an arts program for the Philadelphia public school system for a number of years, and we're not sure of exactly when this was, although I think it may have been around 1905.

Following is the obituary of the artist provided by Temple University's Paley
Library/Urban Archives.

Evening Bulletin [Philadelphia, PA], June 27, 1942

"Mrs. Mary Marshall, Artist, Dies at 74.
Retired Special Assistant to Schools Art Director.

Mrs. Mary E. Marshall, retired special assistant to the director of art for the Philadelphia public schools and noted for flower paintings, died yesterday afternoon at her apartment, 2300 Pine St., after a brief illness.  She was 74.

Funeral services will be held tomorrow at 3 P. M. at Oliver H. Bair's, 1820
Chestnut St., with private interment at Shippensburg Monday.  A native of
Mercersburg, Mrs. Marshall was the widow of Dr. James B. Marshall, a
Shippensburg physician, who died in 1895.

A graduate of Shippensburg State Teachers College and the Philadelphia School of Industrial Art, Mrs. Marshall was in charge of art education in the Phoenixville public  schools for three years before becoming head of the art department at the William Penn High School here in 1911.

She held this post until 1925, when she was made special assistant to the director of art education.  She retired in 1938.

She is survived by a son, Paul M. Marshall, of Evanston, Ill., and three brothers, W. H. Reisner, Hagerstown, Md.; Charles F. Reisner, Salisbury, N. C., and J. Edward Reisner, Shippensburg."
