Marguerite Day, 59, of Eagle-Vail since 1989, passed away in Eagle-Vail on March 30. She was born on Feb. 21, 1956, to Everett and Charlotte DuPen in Seattle.

Marguerite graduated from Bishop Blanchet High School in Seattle. A talented ballerina, she studied with the Seattle Joffrey Ballet and the San Francisco Ballet. Marguerite was the owner of Stiicky Green and the Frazzled Framer of Edwards. She was extremely artistic and lived life to the fullest.
