Gwin, Marion #2 (14 MAR 1865 - 5 MAR 1943)

Miss Marion Gwin, 77, Curtiss, 1942, at the home of her sister, Mrs. Daisy Marcott, 7 miles north of the Village of Curtiss (Clark Co., Wis.) in Taylor Co., were conducted at the Marcott home Monday afternoon.

The Rev. Raymond H. Browe, pastor of Salem Evangelical Church at Dorchester had charge of the services, and burial was made in Pine Hill Cemetery. Pallbearers were Otto Favel, Emmet Hawks, Allen Hawks, Vernon Praag, Rose Carley, and Leslie Saxe.

Miss Gwin, who was born March 14, 1865, in St. Lawrence Co., N.Y., taught school in Clark County and other parts of Wisconsin for 29 years before retiring 30 years ago. Her home was in the Village of Curtiss, but she spent winters with Mrs. Marcott.

The father of Miss Gwin lost his life in the Civil War, and she and her mother and step-father, Mr. and Mrs. Packard, came to Taylor County to settle on the homestead where the Marcotts not live.

A member of the Order of Eastern Star in New York, Miss Gwin is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Daisy Marcott, Curtiss, and Mrs. J.R. (Eleanor) Folmer, Seattle, Wash. A sister, Mrs. Allie Davis, and a brother, Earl Packard, preceded her in death.
