Breed, Margaret (9 APR 1883 - 2 JAN 1927)

Miss Margaret Breed passed away at St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield Sunday evening, Jan. 2, 1927. She came here for the holiday vacation, but was not feeling well, and went to the hospital for examination. An operations was performed Friday, but owing to a weak condition of the heart, she failed to rally and she continued to sink until death came.

Margaret Breed, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Breed, was born in Neillsville, Clark County, Wis., April 9, 1883. She grew to womanhood here and was educated in the Neillsville schools, and began teaching in country schools, later securing positions in graded schools. She was thorough and conscientious in her work, and was well liked wherever she was engaged as a teacher. She taught two years in the west some years ago, then returned to Wisconsin where she remained. This was her third year in the schools at Packwaukee, and her death will come as a sad blow to her pupils and patrons in that village. Her summers were generally spent with her brother Robert and family at Duluth, or in attending summer school for teachers at some of the State Normals. Miss Breed was a lady of quiet manner, but faithful and sympathetic in her work and was ever ready to be of service to her associates in the community. She leaves to mourn her death one brother, Robert, who is a railroad man, and is now stationed at Gary, Indiana, and one sister, Miss Mamie Breed, principal of schools at Blaine, Wash. R. B. French of Levis is a cousin, and deceased often made vacation visits at his home.

The funeral was held this Wednesday afternoon at the Congregational Church, Rev. G. W. Longenecker officiating.

Mr. and Mrs. Robert Breed and child are here to attend the funeral.
