Tripp, Marian (2 DEC 1832 - 25 AUG 1919)

A telegram received here Monday by Mrs. S. M. Marsh announced the death of her aunt, Miss Marian Tripp, at Colorado Springs, Colo. Deceased was a sister of the late O. G. Trip and made her home here (Neillsville, Clark County, Wis.) for many years, and will be remembered by many of our older people.

(Follow up in 9/4/1919 R & P)

Born at Schroon Lake, N. Y. Dec. 2, 1832; died at Colorado Springs, Colo., Aug. 23, 1919.

The father, A. S. Tripp, was a teacher and Miss Marian followed her father's profession.

Coming west in early womanhood, she soon was given a position in the city schools of Davenport, Iowa, where she continued to teach for 21 years, enjoying the friendship of the Ed Crossett and Ed Lindsay families, so well known in Neillsville. Giving up her work in 1880 on account of failing health, Miss Tripp came to Clark County, Wis. to share the home of her brother, Mr. O. G. Trip, and for many years, except for intervals with friends, she lived with Mr. and Mrs. Tripp in Neillsville and Tavares, Florida, going with Mrs. Tripp to San Diego, Cal., in 1914. The last three years of her life have been spent with a cousin, Mrs. Myrtle Mitchell in Colorado Springs. Her keen mind was little dimmed by age and almost to the last each letter had its witticism.

The illness resulting from a cold was brief and the last hours were peacefully slept away.
