OBITUARY - MARY K. HUMBERT

Mary Humbert.jpg Mary K. HUMBERT was born May 26th, 1920 in Delphos Iowa to Hugh Keenan SEATON and Nettie Mae OMER. She departed this life on April 10th, 2008 in Mount Ayr, Iowa after a short illness.

Mary attended school in Delphos and graduated at the age of 16. She went on to attend State Teachers college in Maryville, Missouri where she obtained her teaching certificate. She started teaching school at the age of 18 at a rural country school in Tingley, Iowa.

On June 8th, 1945 Mary was united in marriage to Harold HUMBERT and moved to a farm outside of Delphos. They later purchased and moved to her current home place where she lived the remainder of her life. It was fitting that Mary never wanted to leave the place she has called home for so many years and was fortunate enough to be able to spend her entire life there.

After marriage, Mary continued with her education, eventually receiving her Master's Degree from Maryville. She continued to teach for a total of 45 years, teaching in Delphos, Maloy, Tingley, and Mount Ayr. Although Mary never had any children of her own, she considered all the children she taught in school as her kids.

Mary was always pleased when she would meet one of her former students and they would mention the fact that she had been their teacher. Most of the students and faculty members remember Mary as the teacher with the red hair, who wore the bright colored clothes, the dangling ear rings, and lots of jewelry. A trait she remained true to until her death.

Mary was a member of the Delphos Baptist Church where she enjoyed playing the piano for Sunday services. After services were discontinued at Delphos, Mary enjoyed attending the Redding United Methodist Church with her friends.

Mary loved to play the piano and would spend hours playing for her own enjoyment. She also like to exercise and take walks. When the weather was nice it wasn't unusual to see Mary with her trusty umbrella and her dog walking along one of the country roads by her house. For those times when she wasn't able to walk outside, Mary insisted on having a treadmill so she could still take her walks.

Preceding Mary in death was her parents, Hugh and Nettie SEATON, her husband Harold, her sister Mildred LINK, and her brother Joseph SEATON.

Survivors include a close nephew Keenan GLENN and wife Pam of Kansas City, Mo., a sister-in-law Virginia STEPHENSON and husband Harold of Delphos, Iowa and other nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.
