DEATH REVEALS CAMPUS ROMANCE
The campus romance of two Waynesburg College students was revealed following the death of Mrs. Marie Whyte McVicker, aged 21, of Rogersville, one of Greene county's most talented young singers, who died at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 14, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Charles McVicker, of Canonsburg, parents of her husband, Henry McVicker, Waynesburg College student, to whom she was married December 1, 1932. The marriage, unknown to all but a few of the couple's most intimate friends, did not become generally known until after the young bride's death.
The happy young bride, whose death came as a severe shock to her family and many friends, underwent an operation for appendicitis some weeks ago in the Greene County Memorial hospital and had returned to her home in Rogersville, where she was apparently convalescing satisfactorily.

She was popular among the younger set and was recognized as one of the county's most talented young musicians, having won a number of musical contests that early brought her to the attention of the music loving public. She was a member of the Rogersville Christian church.
Besides her parents and husband she leaves two sisters, Mrs. Walter Crouse, of Rogersville, and Mrs. Blanche Morris, of Holbrook.
