December 26, 1952 - January 2, 2022
Marshalle Ann Eik, 69, of Johnson City, passed away Sunday, January 2, 2022 following a heroic battle with cancer. She was surrounded by her loving husband and children as her soul grew stronger than her body. Marshalle was born December 26, 1952 in Sioux City, Iowa. She married her Central High School sweetheart, Randy R. Eik in 1971. Graduating from Western Iowa Tech, she began a dedicated nursing career at St. Luke’s Medical Center. After 11 years of marriage, the couple moved to Johnson City, TN to continue their journey building a family. Marshalle devoted many years at Northside Hospital and would later serve Mountain States Health Alliance in several positions. Later in her career, she pursued a Masters in Nurse Management at King University and spent some time at Indian Path Hospital. She finished her career as the Interim Chief Nursing Officer of Franklin Woods Hospital and retired in 2016 with 35 years dedicated to her calling. Marshalle’s passion was family – a true matriarch.
