Marian was born to Paul Los Kamp (d 1948) and Lois Los Kamp. She lived in Berkeley, Stockton and Colusa and Placer County California.

It looks as though Marian was a dedicated teacher and spent most of her life in Northern California. According to the 1934-1944 California Voter Registrations Miss Marian I Los Kamp lived on Princeton Street in Colusa County California and was a Republican and worked as a teacher. She also had a PO Box 254 on P Street in Placer County California.

A note from a younger cousin: When I knew Cousin Marian (she was a cousin of my mother's), I was a young adult in the 1970's. She was a lovely lady and was a dedicated Christian Scientist. I was rather horrified when she told me that as a tenet of her religion, she would have dental work without anesthesia. Ouch! When I married in 1972, she sent me an antique jam spoon (with documentation) purchased from Gumps - and upscale store in San Francisco. She lived in Alameda CA at that time. Reading the above is the first time that I found out that she lived anywhere else!

My Aunt Lois (my mother's half-sister) was named after Marian's mother, Lois. Their father was a younger brother of Marian's mother and Lois was his "favorite sister." (Or so I'm told). My mother's first name was Marian - after cousin Marian?

Any memories from others about when she was young. I only met her (she's a cousin) when she was older.

Marian Immogene Los Kamp passed away on March 29, 1988 at 80 years of age. She was born on January 7, 1908. There is no information about Marian's family.

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Marian's lifetime.

In 1908, in the year that Marian Immogene Los Kamp was born, a mysterious Siberian explosion leveled over 770 square miles of forest. There were no human casualties. Explanations of the explosion have included a comet, meteorite, natural atomic explosion, or a crashed UFO. Although it is called an impact event - the largest one in recorded earth history - there is no crater and it is widely thought that the explosion was caused by a meteor exploding 3 to 6 miles above the earth.

In 1918, by the time she was just 10 years old, on November 1, an elevated train on the Brooklyn line of the subway - driven by an inexperienced operator because of a strike - tried to navigate a turn at 30mph. The limit on the curve was 6 mph. The 2nd and 3rd cars of the 5 car wooden train were badly damaged and at least 93 people were killed, making it the deadliest crash in New York subway history.

In 1952, when she was 44 years old, on February 6th, George VI of England died from a coronary thrombosis and complications due to lung cancer. His eldest daughter, age 25, immediately ascended the throne as Elizabeth II and her coronation was on June 2 1953.

In 1975, at the age of 67 years old, Marian was alive when on September 5th, Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme tried to assassinate President Ford in Sacramento, California. She failed when her gun wouldn't fire. President Ford escaped a second assassination attempt 17 days later on September 22 when Sarah Jane Moore tried to shoot him in San Francisco. A bystander saw her raise her arm, grabbed it, and the shot went wild.

In 1988, in the year of Marian Immogene Los Kamp's passing, on December 21st, Pan Am Flight 103 exploded over Lockerbie Scotland. The explosion killed all 259 people on board and another 11 on the ground. The flight had left Heathrow Airport in London less than an hour before, on its way to New York. After an exhaustive (and long) investigation it came to be believed that two individuals from Libya had planted the bomb.
