DAVENPORT - Funeral services for Margaret E. "Marti" Horn, Davenport, will be 11 a.m. Saturday at Cunnick-Collins Mortuary Chapel in Davenport. Friends may gather for visitation from 9:30 a.m. until service time at the mortuary. Burial will follow at Davenport Memorial Park. Marti died Wednesday, March 19, 2003, at Bettendorf Health Care Center. Margaret Elizabeth Horn was born June 26, 1927, to Arthur and Irene (LaFrentz) Horn in Clinton, Iowa. She contracted polio at the age of 13 and is considered to be the first known polio case diagnosed in Scott County. She was cared for by her very loving parents at home and became a very successful and well-known artist in the Quad-City area even though confined to a wheel chair since youth. She served on various Beaux Arts committees and showed her artwork yearly at the Beaux Arts Fair. She was very proud of winning the E.P. Adler Portrait Award at the Quad-City Artists Exhibition at the Davenport Municipal Art Gallery, now the Davenport Museum of Art, for her portrait of dance teacher Eleanor Pucci Miller. She loved to travel and had visited extensively throughout the United States. Survivors include several cousins and her very many close friends. She was preceded in death by her parents and a very special and longtime friend, Chuck Thompson.
