Wages leave piano to MA
By SUE WATSON
Bill and Dianne Wage are thanked by headmaster Jane Hubbard for their gift of a small grand piano to Marshall Academy.
It is one of the last made in the Iver & Ponds piano plant in Boston approximately 80 years ago.
The Wages bought the piano for their daughter Laura to practice with when they lived on Peabody in Memphis.
Bill and Dianne are in the process of closing out their business in Holly Springs before moving to Jonesboro, Ark., to live near their children and grandchildren.
In accepting the gift on behalf of the school, Hubbard said, “We are so excited to get the piano, but we are not to see them go.”
A retired school teacher and then tutor at Marshall Academy, Dianne Wage looked at photos of rising seniors on display in a window at the office, pointing to each one she taught.
Bill Wage, an architect, and his wife moved to Holly Springs from Memphis and he established a practice in Marshall County contributing to the design of the Marshall County Industrial Development Building and the design of other buildings and several churches.
He will open an office in Jonesboro and the Wages will move into a new home.
