Who is Marjorie L. Muttersbach Anyway

I'm sure you've seen this beautiful tree. It's between Nob Hill and the auto dealer, Los Gatos Chevrolet.

But it's only when you're walking that you see there's a marker that says it was dedicated in memory of Marjorie L. Muttersbach on July 24, 1991.

I don't even remember where I was that year. I was working at Silicon Graphics, I think I had my Harley by then. I was renting a house in Mountain View.

I don't remember anything about her. I'm curious...who was she? What did she contribute to the history of Los Gatos? And where can we find out these things?

And why can't I add a second image using Blogger?
Oh well, I'll have to do a second post.

Margie was the first woman to ever serve on the Los Gatos town council in the late 60's. Margie also served on the parks commission for 14 years. She worked hard and loved that town.
