Two local chefs, both at crossroads in their lives, are among the 18 contestants in the 10th season of the Fox cooking series Hell's Kitchen, premiering at 8 p.m. Monday. Barbie Marshall, who will submit to the tender ministrations of Gordon Ramsay, was a Johnson & Wales University-trained chef and mother living in Southwest Philadelphia, juggling home life and work at such restaurants as 1225 Raw Sushi, Rx, and Philadelphia Fish & Co. One day five years ago, she couldn't reach her estranged husband, who she knew had been visiting his mother's house in the city's Fern Rock section with their two young children.

John Marshall, 91, of Devon, a retired communications director and a senior member and facilitator of a prostate-cancer support group, died of sepsis on Thursday, Dec. 15, at Paoli Memorial Hospital. His wife of 58 years had died two months ago, and although the official cause of Mr. Marshall's death was complications from an infection, he died of a broken heart, their son William said. Mr. Marshall graduated in 1938 from West Philadelphia High School. He was student body president, starred in several Shakespeare productions, and was voted "peppiest" member of his class, his son said.

John Marshall used to squirt his wife with Silly String when she came home from work, an ambush of sticky green gook just to make sure she laughed a little every day. Marshall held multiple degrees and was working toward his doctorate in bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania. He was an athlete - a soccer player and a rock climber. The AIDS complications that ravaged his body for years finally killed him in 1995. Doctors suspect that Marshall, a mild hemophiliac, contracted the HIV virus from a contaminated blood factor when he was in high school and had surgery to repair a soccer injury.

On the day Marcus O'Sullivan began his ticklish new job, he gathered his charges and explained things. He told Villanova's men's and women's track athletes that he knew it had to be a shock to lose their coach, John Marshall, to what Marshall intimated was a forced resignation June 9. O'Sullivan pointed out that he also suddenly lost his coach, Jumbo Elliott, who died in March 1981 when O'Sullivan was a Villanova freshman. After agreeing to a three-year contract yesterday, O'Sullivan encouraged the runners to enjoy their summer break and to return refreshed for the fall cross country season, with Marshall's messy departure behind them.

On Tuesday, Villanova announced that Marshall, its coach since 1994, would not return as coach next season in order to pursue other opportunities.

John Marshall remembers 1982, in an era when Villanova dominated the Penn Relays like no other school in the carnival's history, and coach Charlie Jenkins asked him to anchor two of the Wildcats' Championship of America teams. As a freshman. Now Marshall is the coach of Villanova's young Wildcats, both men and women. Now he gets his chance to put some freshmen squarely into the stress tank that is Franklin Field during Penn Relays week, which just happens to be next week. "You don't like to anchor freshmen, but sometimes you have to do that, have that baptism immediately," Marshall said yesterday at the kickoff news conference for the 102d carnival.

Villanova yesterday named assistant coach John Marshall to succeed Marty Stern as the school's head track coach. The 30-year-old Marshall, an Olympian and former Wildcat whose coaching experience consists of two seasons as an assistant on Stern's staff, will coach both the men's and women's track and cross-country programs. If that seems a big jump in responsibility, neither Marshall nor Villanova athletic director Gene DeFilippo seemed concerned. "I think every coach in America who applied for this job had something against him," Marshall said, "so I didn't worry about it. I concentrated on the positives I had for this job. I never really worried about my lack of experience or lack of tenure because I feel I had a lot to offer.
