Obituary for Amy Marshall Hardin

November 20, 1961 - January 8, 2019
Austin, Texas | Age 57


Amy Marshall Hardin, of Austin, passed away on January 8, 2019, after a most courageous 80-day fight with complications of heart surgery.

Amy was born in Houston on November 20, 1961, to Neal and Amy Jo Marshall. The majority of her formative years were spent in Odessa, where she graduated from Permian High School. She then went to Baylor University, where she received her Bachelors degree in Business Administration.

Amy was an inspiration to her family, friends, and colleagues. These included deep and lasting friendships with the Queen Bs from Baylor, the Lit Chics of her Lakeway book club, and the Women's Leadership Summit. Amy also enjoyed close relationships with many clients of SELLect Sales Development, the company she founded that had meaningful impact on hundreds of people, as well as her peers in Vistage. She loved to travel, be it to the beaches of Port Royal with family and friends every summer, to her many trips abroad. She also enjoyed dining out, live music, playing games, modern art, watching Manchester United with the Austin Reds, Oktoberfest's, and Chevy Chase's Christmas Vacation – a must view with her family every year.

While her accomplishments were many, as a loving and devoted mother, Amy was most proud of her three wonderful children - Wright, Marshall, and Haley, from her first marriage to Hal Hawthorne. Amy is survived by her children Wright Hawthorne, Marshall Hawthorne, Haley Trenschel and husband Matthew Trenschel, her mother Amy Jo "AJ" Marshall, her sister Cathy Marshall Mason and husband Rick, her nephews Grant and Blake Mason, and her "sweetheart" of several years, Carey Balzer. She was preceded in death by her father, Neal "Poppa" Marshall.

The family would like to thank all of the medical team at Seton Medical Center and St. David's for their compassionate care of Amy and the friendships they made with us.

A memorial service celebrating her life will be held at 2:00 pm on Friday, January 18 at Lakeway Church on 2203 Lakeway Blvd.
