Grandma Marsh is Randy Marsh's mother, as well as Stan and Shelley Marsh's paternal grandmother. She only made one on-screen appearance which was in "You Have 0 Friends", although she has been mentioned in dialog in other episodes.


When Stan's friends Cartman, Kyle and Kenny create a Facebook for him against his will, Stan begins to become assaulted by Facebook-type requests from everyone around him, including his grandmother. Apparently suffering from some sort of illness and hospitalized, Grandma Marsh spends much of her time on Facebook to keep in-contact with her family and friends. However, when Stan does not immediately "friend" her, she contacts her son Randy who then demands that he pay attention to his grandma's Facebook status.

Later when Stan is literally "sucked into" Facebook, a digital avatar of his grandmother is seen interacting with all of his other Facebook friends, at a digital party created by his now sentient Facebook profile. Once Stan defeats his Facebook profile in a game of Yahtzee, she and everyone else on Stan's friends list are transferred to Kip Drordy.

It's likely she and Marvin are divorced since they don't live at Shady Acres together and she's hardly mentioned by Marvin and Randy.


Despite her failing health and the suggested age of Grandma Marsh, she appears to remain relatively younger than Marvin. She has grayish white hair and glasses. However, due the fact that Grandma Marsh has only appeared as a digital avatar character in the techno-world of Facebook, her appearance may not exactly be accurate to her current state. Also she is not seen wearing normal attire, but instead she is seen wearing a Tron-like costume of glowing technology.
