Mary O. Crooks
Mary O. Crooks was born near Port Andrew, Richland Co., Wisconsin on August 30, 1874. She was married to Geo. John Medenia in 1907 in Cherry County. Due to her deep study to gain a higher education, poor eyesight and broken down health, it was necessary for her to be taken to the State Hospital at Norfolk about two years after her marriage, remaining there until the final summons came Dec. 17, 1920. Interment was made in the Hutchins burying ground. Excerpts from Meadow Grove News, Friday December 24, 1920 on page 1.
