wvrons Posted February 15, 2008 Report Share Posted February 15, 2008 A friend Mary Hazelbaker passed away last week. She worked for Alley straight out of high school at the Pennsboro location,and lived in sight of the old marble plant all her life,watching it fall down. Just got news that another good friend Mary Jane Wilson former owner of Playrite passed away yesterday. She had been in the hospital in ICU for a few days. Both helped with the recent American Machine Made marble book and was 100% supporters of the WVMCC since its start. Both wanted people to have the information out to any collector anywhere. The list keeps growing of people now gone who was a big part of that book. Not many left. Another sad day in WV marble history. I will miss them both.
