Mark E. Bruce, 81, one of Portage county's most widely known citizens, a veteran hotel and theatre man and a member of the Stevens Point water commission since its organization, died Sunday morning at 3:50 o'clock at St. Michael's hospital. Mr. Bruce had been active in his various interests until he entered the hospital on August 17 when his condition was regarded as serious. His condition was critical the last few days. Mr. Bruce was born at South Colton, New York, on November 20, 1857, a son of Nathaniel P and Rhoda Bourne Bruce. His mother died when he was only two years old and four years later, in June 1863, his father came west to Dodge county. His six children followed him in November of that year and the family located at Atwater. Mark Bruce attended rural school until he was 13 years old after which he worked on farms in Dodge county and later in Trempealeau county. Worked in Woods After a few years as a farm hand, Mr. Bruce went to northern Wisconsin and worked in the woods. It was during his residence at Merrill, on April 22, 1885, that his marriage to Marguerite LaMieux took place. The couple were married in Stevens Point at the Methodist parsonage by Rev. R. W. Bosworth. They resided at Merrill and three years later came to Portage county and settled on a farm in what was then the town of Eau Pleine but is now the town of Dewey. After living there seven years the family moved to Stevens Point, in January, 1895. They took over the management of the Bruce hotel on South Third street in December, 1898, and Br. Bruce, who acquird the property, continued to operate the hotel until 1920. At that time he leased it and moved his family to a home which he built two doors from the hotel. Pioneer Theatre Man A pioneer in the theatre business in Stevens Point, Mr. Bruce opened what was known as the Gem theatre in the Odd Fellows building on North Third street in December, 1912. A year later he built a building to house the theatre at the present location of the G. A. Gullikson garage. He continued operating under the name of the Gem until he remodeled the building and changed the name to the Strand. In the meantime he leased the Opera House, the present Fog theatre, which he opened in November, 1920. He continued to operate the Strand until 1921 and the Opera House until 1925. He closed his theatre career at that time, selling his theatre interests to John Adler of Marshfield. Mr. and Mrs. Bruce re-entered the hotel business in 1933 and continued to operate the Bruce hotel until the death of Mrs. Bruce on March 23, 1937. Mr Bruce then leased the hotel to Mrs. Vernon Soule, who has since operated it. Commission President A member of the board of water commissioners since it was formed in 1922, Mr. Bruce served as its vice president for a time and in 1934 became its president, which office he held until his death. He was an active member of the commission and took a prominent part in planning construction of the water department's new office building. Mr. Bruce formerly held membership in various lodges and organizations, but in later years confined his activities to the Odd Fellow and Masonic orders. He held the various offices in the Odd Fellows lodge, Stevens Point Lodge No. 92; and conducted the organization's funeral rites for many years. Of the Masonic bodies he held membership in Evergreen lodge, Forest chapter and Crusade commandery. In Many Activities An active member of the old Settlers association which was organized in September, 1892, Mr. Bruce was elected as its secretary and treasurer in 1915, later serving as its president. He was a member and treasurer of the board of education for several years, served as secretary of the former Stevens Point Fair association for a year and was an active member of the fair board during the years of its existance. He served Portage county as its humane officer for many years and was Red Cross chairman during the World war.

Friend of Young, Old Mr. Bruce often remarked that he kept young by associating with young people. He took pleasure in their activities and maintained a keen interest in local athletic contests, which he attended. He was usually in the bleachers at baseball and softball games. Children of his neighborhood found a true friend in Mr. Bruce, who enjoyed taking them during the summer bathing seasons to Iverson park, which was created under supervision of the water commission of which he was so long an active member. Mr. Bruce enjoyed a wide acquaintance among the older residents of the city and county. He like to relate stories of the hardships and adventures of the pinery days. He had been looking forward to participating in the Stevens Point centennial celebration this month. [Source: The Stevens Point Daily Journal , Monday, October 2, 1939]
Eulogy for Mark E. Bruce

Genial, kindly Mark E. Bruce, one of central Wisconsin's sturdy pioneers, has passed on. Mr. Bruce lived to the ripe age of 81, but even more to the point is the fact that he enjoyed every minute of his alloted span. Mr. Bruce was a man who never seemed to grow old. He liked to associate with young people, but, more than that, he retained the spirit of youth down to the last. Looking back through the years, wo do not remember a time when Mark Bruce wasn't filled with enthusiasm, good nature and a will to serve. He was an active participant in so many civic affairs that it would be impossible to recount more than a small portion of them. In his declining years Mr. Bruce, one of the few surviving rivermen of the Pinery days, was often called upon to relate experiences of that backwoods era. He had a speaking style all his own, one of simple informality, and his talks were always interesting and enjoyable. With Mr. Bruce's passing Stevens Point loses one of its most public spirited citizens. [Source: Stevens Point Daily Journal, Wednesday, Oct 4, 1939]

Prominent Local Lady Dies After Long Illness
Mrs. Dee Jay Kelsey, prominent for many years in church and temperance work in Stevens Point and a lady of wide acquaintance through-out the city, died at the family home, 402 Water street, at 12:07 o'clock this afternoon. Enlargement of the liver was the cause of death. Mrs. Kelsey became ill last Thanksgiving day but up to a short time before Christmas seemed to improve and at times was able to sit up. However, a relapse took place and her decline was gradual but steady. Eleven days ago all hopes for her recovery were abandoned and the end, since that time, was almost momentarily expected. Miss Cora I. Sowle was born at Tomah, Wisconsin, June 27, 1861, and was married there to Mr. Kelsey April 12, 1882. The following spring Mr. and Mrs. Kelsey came to this city and here they have ever since made their home. Besides her husband she is survived by three children, Jay V., Mildred and Karl. She also leaves a sister, Mrs. H. V. Litchfield of Salona, Minn. and a half brother, Harvey Sowle, of Tomah. Mrs. Litchfield and Mrs. Orlando Sowle, the latter a sister-in-law of Mrs. Kelsey, from Dickinson, North Dakota, have been in the city for the last two weeks. Mrs. Kelsey was a woman who, without neglecting the affairs of her home, to which she was greatly devoted, lent her influence for good to many worthy causes. She was a member of St. Paul's M. E. church and of its official board for several years. She served several terms as president of the Ladies Aid society and held numerous offices in the Woman's Foreign Missionary society. As a member of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union she was particularly active. She was county president of that organization for three terms, also served as local president, and two years ago she was a delegate to the National W.C.T.U. convention held at Milwaukee. She was also secretary of the Women's club for three terms. Mrs. Kelsey has the distinction of being the first person to camp on what is now Maple Beach, a few miles up the river, and also gave that popular resort its name. While in ill health twenty-one years ago she established a camp there and each summer thereafter for seventeen years spent a part of her time at the Beach. Mrs. Kelsey will be greatly missed by friends not alone in Stevens Point but elsewhere. Ever working for the right as she saw it and taking a kindly interest in those about her she was held in affection by every acquaintance. The funeral will be held Saturday afternoon. Services will be conducted at St. Paul's M. E. church at 2 o'clock by Rev. C. R. Montague, preceding which there will be a prayer at the residence.

She was kind and amiable to all, but a woman of strength of character, and great will force, and retained her faculties to a remarkable degree up to about five weeks prior to her death, in September, 1882, she had a severe illness, since which time she had been treading very closely upon the borders of the hereafter. During this period she had not been able to rise from her chair or walk without assistance, but at all times her declining years have been made as cheerful as possible by her children residing in this county. The most of her time for the past fifteen years or so had been spent with Mrs. Curran, with occasional visits among her other children. [Source: Stevens Point Daily Journal (Stevens Point, Wis.)
