Maggie Wright

DOD: 08 March 1885

Miss Maggie Wright, who was a teacher in our schools till compelled to resign a few months ago on account of ill health, died at the residence of her father, J. M. Wright, in Greene township, on Sabbath morning last, aged about 30 years. Miss Wright was an excellent young lady and a popular and efficient teacher.  She had been a consistent member of the Lutheran church for several years prior to her death. A delegation of thirteen of the teachers of our schools attended the funeral on Tuesday, and carried with them a beautiful floral offering in the shape of a pillow, with the inscription, "Our Teacher," upon it, which was provided by children in our schools who have been Miss Wright's pupils for a few years past. Rev. H. W. Roth, D. D., assisted by rev. Dr. Kunkleman conducted the funeral services. The remains were taken to Rocky Glen Cemetery, near Adamsville, for burial. .
