A picture of Marian Wing O'Neill

Marian J. Wing O’Neill ’42, November 26, 2012, in Auburn, California. Marian traveled widely as a child in England, Canada, and the western United States. She studied at Reed for three years before transferring to the University of California, Berkeley, where she earned a BA in psychology with a minor in art. She later took coursework at San Jose State, Sierra Junior College, and at other UC campuses, and was an occupational therapist at Newcastle School for Exceptional Children and a teacher. She also was an artist, whose watercolors and prints appeared in many exhibitions, and she was an active participant in the Sierra Foothills Unitarian Fellowship and the UC and Reed alumni associations. Marian and William Belcher ’42 married and had a son and four daughters. Survivors include her husband of 42 years, Robert J. O’Neill, and her children and five grandchildren. We thank Marian’s daughter Nina Belcher for providing the details for this memorial.
