Obituary

Margie Ann DeHart, age 94, of Elwood, passed away on Thursday, June 9, 2022 at her residence following a long and well-lived life. She was born in Scottsville, KY on May 27,1928, to the late Wesley  and Lillie (Tinsley) Weaver. On June 3, 1944, Margie married Charles Lee DeHart and they shared 71 years of marriage together before his death in 2015.

Margie was a homemaker and absolutely loved caring for her family and home. She was the former owner of the This & That Shop, and also worked during the busy canning seasons at Ray Brothers Canning factory and Pioneer Seed Co. Margie was a member of the Cornerstone Assembly of God for 66 years and was the last surviving Charter member of the church. 

Margie was a wonderful cook and loved hosting cookouts and Sunday dinners for her family, and never turned anyone away from her table. She was known for her specialty dishes of fried chicken, potato salad, and freezer corn. She was an excellent pie baker and coconut cream, lemon and fried apple pies were the favorites of all who were lucky enough to eat them. She was also a faithful contributor of her special peanut brittle for her church's fundraising efforts. Margie prepared Christmas dinner for her entire family until two years ago.

A very compassionate person, Margie's kindness extended well beyond family and friends and even to the stray cats in her neighborhood that she fed. Two of them, Blackie and Little Tike, found their forever homes with her. She enjoyed working with her flowers, gardening, attending flea markets and auctions, and watching the Indianapolis Colts and NASCAR races. More than anything, Margie loved her family and she will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

Margie is survived by her daughters, Anna (husband Don) Stephens and Nancy (husband Stan) Durham; sons, Robert Lee (wife Barbara) DeHart and Charles "Rob" DeHart; 10 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and 16 great-great-grandchildren; brothers, James "Boss" Weaver; Eugene (wife Jan) Weaver; and Dewy (wife Glenda) Weaver; sisters, Betty (husband W.E.) Grimes and Sue( husband Leslie) Cook; and several nieces and nephews.

Margie was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Charles L. DeHart; 1 grandson; 2 great-grandchildren; and 6 great-great grandchildren; and siblings, John Weaver, Joe Weaver, and Maedene Lee.
