Obituary for Marian M. DePue

Marian M. DePue of Dover passed away, Monday, November 4, 2019 at home. She was 91.
Mrs. DePue was born November 7, 1927 in Akron, Ohio to the late John E. Mason and Blanche Savage Mason.
She received her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Akron in 1949 and was a member of Alpha Delta Pi. She met her future husband Lewis and they were married in June, 1950. The family moved to Dover in 1967 where Lewis worked at ILC working on the space suits for the Apollo space mission. Mrs. DePue started her teaching career in 1970 teaching as a substitute for a few years and in 1972 started at Dover High School teaching typing and shorthand, until she retired in 1991. She loved running into former students over the years. Her hobbies included reading, watching college football, and baking; she was known for her homemade pie crusts. A highlight each year was watching the Kentucky Derby. Mrs. DePue was a lifelong Democrat and loved politics, but her biggest enjoyment in life was spending time and keeping in touch with her grandchildren. She was a member of the People’s Church of Dover, United Church of Christ, where she met many cherished friends.
In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, Lewis E. DePue and her 3 three sisters; Betty Turner, Ruth Greeley and Jeanette Hull.
