Her parents were Fred Eggert and Clarice Tronquet Mar- ler. Her father immigrated from Germany in his teens and her ‘ mother from France while a child. In 1917 the family moved to Colfax, Washington, where Marler and Brass owned a meat mar- ket, her father owned buildings and at one time, the Chrysler- Plymouth car dealership, and served as water superintendent for the city. ' Maria graduated from 'St. Johns Academy and Colfax High ,School, class of 1930. While a student at WSC, her father wouldn’t allow her to travel to the Rose Bowl game in California, claiming that she was too young. She complained that by the time the Cougs went again, she was too old! She graduated from Alpha, national music honorary. 1W0 favorite profeSsors were Dr. and Mrs. Kimbrough, for whom the music building is named atWSU. She taught five years in Troy, Idaho and one year in The Dalles, Oregon, before moving to Granite Falls, where she completed her teaching career in 1978. She earned post-baccalaureate credits at a number of schools, including the University of Idaho and University of Washington. ’:She wrote the elementary music ,curriculum adopted by the state of Washington in 1952. When the Granite Falls School District levy failed in 1971 and music was cut from the curriculum, she retrained to teach Title I read- ing, a program which teaches struggling readers. She married Henry Burrill in 1945, and he died in 1996. During her teaching career, she wrote twelve operettas and cantatas, plus many songs, as monevaas scarce for copyrighted materi- als. She helped establish the Granite Falls Alumni Association and raised funds for scholarships, including Aendowing a-schol- arship herself. Her philosophy was “No child should be de- prived of the joys of listening to and participating in the music experience." - Her memberships included the Lady lions, the Library Board, and Granite Falls Historical Society. She was a familiar figure in Granite Falls out for her daily walks, and she served as grand marshal of the town’s Railroad and Reunion Days Parade twice.
