Marie Frye Gage, 99, died Wednesday, January 14, 2004 at Calvin Community, where she resided. Memorial graveside services will be 11 a.m. Friday, January 16 at Masonic Cemetery.

Marie was born in Hamilton, Iowa and had lived in Des Moines since 1924. Employed by Tri-States Theatre Corporation in 1932, Mrs. Gage rose from a secretarial position to director of merchandising operations. She resigned from Tri-States in 1954 to pursue personal interests. After eight years she returned to the business world as office manager of the Des Moines Golf and Country Club. She was named administrative assistant of the club when it moved to its present location in West Des Moines and served in that capacity until retiring in 1975; however, she continued to work for the club on special projects throughout her retirement. She also enjoyed playing bridge.

Marie is survived by her stepson, Rodney A. Gage of Palmdale, CA, and numerous friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Elmer Earl Frye and Alma Maude (White) Frye and her husband, Everett Clyde Gage.

Memorials may be made to the Des Moines Golf and Country Club Educational Foundation, Calvin Community or Hospice of Central Iowa.
