Charlene “Char” Horne Muro Marshall, 72 of Hoopa, passed away to be with our Lord and Savior on December 12, 2021 at 12:45 a.m. She was surrounded by her loved ones singing and reading scripture to her.

Char was born on August 28, 1949 to Rev. Frank Horne Sr. and Pauline White Horne in Hoopa at the old hospital on Loop Road. Char was the oldest of six children — along with Char there are Caroline Horne, Frank “Badge” Horne Jr, Jonathan Horne (deceased), Raelene Cobb and Gerard Horne (deceased). She was a tomboy. When she was a teenager she would wrestle her boyfriends down when they asked her out. She also taught herself how to do hair cutting, perming, dyeing, etc.

In November of 1964 she lost her mother, brother, grandmother and cousin in a tragic car accident and took on the role of helping her father raise her siblings when her dad was out preaching the word of God. She helped with caring for her siblings, she became the mother figure to them and they looked up to her.

Char married a preacher named Leland Muro in the year of 1969 in Reno. She had six beautiful children with him – Charlena (deceased), Linnie, Leland “Brody”, Tani, Tamera and Raina Muro. After Char and Leland got divorced she moved to Hoopa and remarried Russell Marshall and had her last child in 1987, her baby, Russell “RJ” Marshall Jr. In November of 1997 she took on another role as mother for her grandchildren Danielle and Angel after they and their mother got in a bad car accident and her daughter-in-law didn’t survive, she raised Danielle and Angel as though they were her own. She loved them and taught them about the Lord.

She loved to travel to see her children in Santa Rosa, then to Point Arena to see her Aunt Bim and Cousin Oshie along with other family members who reside there. She also loved to traveled for her religion. She would go to all kind of church meetings, whether it be in Covelo or over to Nevada. She was a true woman of God – she put all her faith in him and trusted him with all her heart. All she wanted in life was for her children to know God. Char had a smile that we will never forget or the voice of angel when she would speak or sing.
