On 23 Sep 2023, a deadly car accident took the life of a beloved and cherished Katie Marshall, leaving her family, friends, and the Barrie, Ontario community in deep sorrow and devastation.
Katie Marshall and her husband, Brody Marshall, were involved in the car crash, but sadly, Katie passed away as she sustained serious injuries while her husband, Brody, was in the intensive care unit. We pray for Brody’s complete recovery and to bring comfort to all of Katie’s family and friends.
Her death was announced through a social media publication by Ann Marie Douglas that states:
“There are not too many people at RVH that Katie hasn’t touched in some way. She was truly a beautiful soul. Friendly, fierce and fair. She was an original protector, and despite her youthful, innocent look, she was always a force to be had. Honestly, that was the best part of Katie; people would underestimate her size, and she would set them straight real quick! Nothing work could throw at her if she could command and control a full-grown horse. Some of our funniest conversations were remembering these times.
I have been so proud of Katie and her strength since we met in the locker room many years ago while working in EVS.”
To determine the potential causes of the accident that led to this catastrophic accident, law enforcement agencies are currently investigating the facts behind this tragic automobile accident.
Details regarding the funeral and obituary will be announced soon by the family so her loved ones become part of her final rituals.
About Katie Marshall:
Katie was a resident of Barrie, Ontario. For those who don’t know, Brody is the farrier. Katie would often accompany Brody when he was out trimming the horses and even test road a few of our horses to test their capabilities. She brought so much joy to the farm every time she visited. They loved each other a lot and always accompanied each other.
Katie meant to everyone she knew the horse community as a whole. Katie was the light; she was always everyone’s biggest supporter and was always there to lend a helping hand. She will be missed tremendously.

“I am at a loss for words. I just heard of the tragedy. Katie Marshall and Brody Marshall are two incredible human beings I have ever met. They have been there for me whenever I needed them. Katie would always join Brody when he was out trimming our horses. She even tested a few of them for us.
I am so sorry, Brody. I hope you push through this hard time.
Please help support them and buy a shirt. All proceeds are going to Brody.

“So devastating. Katie Marshall was an amazing person who was taken too soon. She has touched so many, and now that she looks down on us, know you have the whole community to love and protect Brody and your family. R.I.P Katie, we love you forever and will miss you severely.”
