— Wife of Edwin Bryant Crocker —The donation of her late husband's art collection to the city in 1885 gave Sacramento the first and finest art gallery west of the Mississippi. Other philanthropic gestures during her lifetime, which included generous support of the Protestant Orphan Asylum, founding of the Marguerite Home for Aged and Homeless Women (1884), Women's Aid Society and other numerous charities, earned her the title of "Lady Bountiful".
