Margaret Wilma Dues

Margaret Wilma Dues, age 101, died at the Greenbriar Nursing Center, Eaton, Ohio on April 10, 2020. She was born on February 14, 1919, to J.F. and Mary Ann (Shaw) Lyons, West Lafayette Road, Coshocton, Ohio. On July 4, 1942, she married Wilfred P. Dues at St. Columba’s Church, Dothan, Alabama. Survivors include her daughter, Debbora Jane Jones, Columbia, Missouri, her son Wilfrid Gavin (Kristine Hierholzer) Dues, Eaton, Ohio, four grandchildren, Matthew (Vicki) Jones of Columbia, Missouri, Gavin (Julie) Dues of Troy, Ohio, Annina (Greg) Parini of Worthington, Ohio and Jonathon (Lindsey) Dues of Chicago, Illinois, eight great grandchildren, Addison Jones and Corey Sublett, Cooper and Adler Dues, Dominic, Luca and Vincent Parini, Jonny and Margaret “Mara” Dues.

She graduated from West Lafayette High School in West Lafayette, Ohio, and Office Training School, Columbus, Ohio. She worked at the USAF in Fairborn, Ohio and Dothan, Alabama, and as a legal secretary for many years before retiring from Huffy Corporation’s Purchasing Department in Celina, Ohio. Wilma had many hobbies which included being an accomplished seamstress, an excellent cook, an avid reader and a good golfer. However, nothing made her happier and prouder than her beloved family. Due to the Coronavirus, there will be a private graveside service at St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery in Celina, Ohio, with a Celebration of Life and a Memorial Mass to be held at a future date. Girton Schmidt & Boucher Gard Funeral Home, Eaton, OH is assisting with arrangements. Contributions can be made in her memory to Immaculate Conception School Endowment Fund, 229 W.

I have many warm memories of her. I always loved staying overnight because I knew she would have cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Will always remember her smile and her laugh. She was a unique lady. My condolences for her family.

' To Bill, Kris and family -I just wanted you to know how honored I was to get to know your dear mother while employed with the Greenbriar. She was such a joy and so fun to be around. Her West Lexington Place "buddies" loved her and they had so much fun together. I know you will find strength in the wonderful memories you have. May you feel His warm arms wrapped around you during this time. May God Bless - Kathy Posey

Great Aunt Wilma loved sharing family stories and photos in person and by mail. She loved life and certainly made the most of it during her 101 years! Her loving smile, her warm personality and her generous spirit will be greatly missed. Wishing the family peace and comfort, Carol Jo
