Egan, Michael F.
Michael F. Egan – Carbonate Chronicle – October 26, 1914 – Death of M. F. Egan – Michael F. Egan, at one time treasurer of Lake County, died yesterday in the Woodcraft sanatorium, for the insane at Pueblo. He was about 60 years old. Egan was adjudged insane in the county court here, September 11 last, after his mental condition had become so deranged that he was a menace to the other wards at the county hospital where he had been an inmate for several years. During the term of 1889 and 1890 Egan was county treasurer of Lake County and lived in a fine house in West Eighth Street. He followed mining in California gulch for a time also, and made several small stakes. During another period of his residence in Leadville he managed a blacksmith shop in East Third Street. After his days of prosperity, however, Egan lost all he had and finally came to be a county ward. Three sons who are believed to survive him have not been heard of for some time. Word of Egan's death was sent by the Woodcroft authorities to the county commissioners here yesterday.

She grew up east of Trinidad near Model, where she met and eventually married Edward R. Egley on her birthday in 1946. After living and working in northern New Mexico and raising a daughter, Sharon L. Ozzello, who preceded Mrs. Egley in death in late 2000, the couple returned to Trinidad in the mid-1950s. After giving birth to two sons, Ray E. Egley of Monument and David W. Egley of Halstead, Kan., Mrs. Egley dedicated all of her spare time to supporting their activities. She spent time as a Cub Scout Den Mother, a member of the PTA and later served on the board of directors of the local youth baseball Old Timers organization. After her children left home, she concentrated on numerous other interests. Having never completed high school, she spent evenings working toward and eventually completing the necessary work for her GED. During the last couple of decades she became immersed in her homemade crafts and eventually took up oil painting. From miniature winter and fall scenes painted on wooden spools to the larger canvas renditions of barns, country roads and nature, she won dozens of awards in local, state and regional art shows. Many of her paintings were purchased by and still hang at Trinidad State Junior College. Mrs. Egley also had a long tenure serving as an election judge during all local, state and national elections. An avid reader, she might be reading as many as four or five books at the same time. She was also known to her friends as the first one to respond in their moment of need. She helped cancer victims, children with severe muscular disorders and neighbors and relatives who needed comforting. Mrs. Egley is survived by her husband of 55 years, Edward R. Egley of Trinidad, her two sons, her two daughters-in-law, Leslie Smartt of Colorado Springs and Annette Egley of Halstead, Kan.
