Mary Marlatt Dies At Home In Winchester
          Miss Mary Marlatt, retired educator and Winchester high school librarian, passed away at 12:30 a.m. today at her home 319 Brown street.
          "Aunt Mary," as she was lovingly called by all those who knew her, was the oldest of the eight children of Rev. A. N. and Annie Marie (Collins) Marlatt. She was born in Rushville, Ind., and came to Randolph county in 1919. She received a bachelor of science degree from DePauw university and taught in Dubuque, Iowa, and several high schools in Indiana.
          In the fall of 1919, Aunt Mary went to the Winchester high school to teach Latin. Shortly after she established the high school library and remained as its librarian until retirement approximately six years ago.
          She was a member of the Methodist church, the Fortnightly Book club and the Women's Society of Christian Service.
          Survivors include three sisters, Mrs. Ivan Brenner of Winchester, Mrs. Fred. V. Miller of Connersville, and Mrs. Pearl M. Willis of Indianapolis, and one brother, Dr. Earl Marlatt of Dallas, Texas.
          Funeral services will be conducted at 10:30 o'clock (CST) Wednesday morning at the Maynard and Walker mortuary with Rev. Paul Stephenson officiating and Rev. G. M. Payne assisting. Interment will be in Doddridge Chapel near Connersville. Friends may call at the funeral home after 2 p.m. Tuesday.
