Poetic Obituaries: [Marion Fields Wyllie's] first book

was published in 1974 and she would go on to have another nine books published, including an autobiography, My Nine Lives, by The Ginger Press for her 100th birthday. Multiple poems by Mrs. Wyllie have also been published.

Maryann Thomas, owner of The Ginger Press, said Mrs. Wyllie's writings are very much historical pieces on the area; a look back at 100 years of community.

Mrs. Wyllie had a precise use of words, Thomas said, "and her recall was fabulous, right down to every detail."
