Marion Wilcox CaseMarion Wilcox Case, wife of Des Moines pioneer Rollin A. Case, Jr. and herself a pioneer of the Des Moines area, moved to Des Moines in 1918 and lived there until November 1993, when she passed away. She made the quilt square depicting the Shuey House, where she and her family lived for several years.
