Begley, Marian (31 JUL 1887 - 17 AUG 1915)

Friends her of deceased were most unexpectedly shocked last week Thursday, when the news of the death of Miss Marian Begley reached them. Miss Begley was known to be ill at the home of her parents in Rib Lake, but was not thought to be serious, even by her parents, until the last few days when they became uneasy over her lingering condition. She has taken ill at Phillips last February and was forced to resign as teacher in the public school and returned home to regain her health. A few weeks ago she was taken to Rochester and examined and the opinion of the home physician was confirmed. The cause of death being mitral valve leision, complicated by dropsy, on Tuesday, Aug. 17, 1915, at 5:15 o’clock p.m.

The remains were brought here (Greenwood, Clark County, Wis.), Thursday evening and services held Friday at the Presbyterian Church, Rev. W.T. Hendren officiating. The body was interred in the Greenwood Cemetery.

Marian Begley was born in Greenwood, July 31, 1887. When ten years of age she moved with her parents to Rib Lake, where she had since made her home. She graduated from the Rib Lake High School and Stevens Point Normal, and had since taught in the Colby, Phillips and Greenwood Schools. She was a very intelligent, capable young lady, with a very pleasing temperament, and it is with much sorrow that friends learned of her early demise.

The floral tributes sent here were the most beautiful and of such an immense quantity that the grave for several feet around was covered with flowers and the white casket laid to rest with oceans of the most beautiful floral decorations.

Deceased leaves her parents, two sisters, Irene and Clella, and one brother Harold, who were here to the funeral. Others present were Mrs. Harold Begley, Mrs. Harriet Reeseman and son Ray, Louis Cowles and Mrs. Hazel Wallis of Alma Center, and Mr. and Mrs. K. Andrews and Mrs. Christofferson of Colby.

Stevens Point , Wisconsin Central State Teachers' College

In 1927 Stevens Point Normal School became Central State Teachers College and began offering four-year teaching degrees. When post-World War II enrollment became less centered on teacher training and more focused on liberal arts education, the Wisconsin State Legislature intervened, elevating the school to a Wisconsin State College with the authority to grant bachelor's degrees in liberal arts.
