(Mrs. Phoebe Fuller Marchbank)

Phoebe Fuller was an early graduate from the Vancouver
School of Decorative and Applied Arts, receiving her diploma in 1930,
a member of the school's second graduating class.
She married Frank Chapman Marchbank in Vancouver on September 10, 1932,
according to BC Vital Statistics on-line.

In 1936 the Spring 1936 edition of The
Smock Pocket, the Vancouver School of Art
Graduates' Association newsletter, noted a new arrival: "Philip
Marchbank, the year old son of PHOEBE FULLER Marchbank, '30. He was
born on April 22nd. 1935."
A Phoebe Mary Marchbank is listed as passing away in Vernon
on November 30, 1980 at the age of 72. Although the name is not an
exact match, this is likely the artist, as Frank Chapman Marchbank
also died in Vernon, on April 27, 1985 at the age of 71.
