Audrey Elaine (Holmes) DeWeber

June 08, 1928 ‒ April 15, 2015

Marion, Ohio

Audrey Elaine (Holmes) DeWeber, Marion, passed away quietly on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 at home in the company of her family, following a lengthy illness.

Audrey was born in Portland, Oregon on June 8, 1928. She was the fourth of six children to Claude and Martha (Kassebaum) Holmes. She attended Cascade College in Portland where she met and married Dick DeWeber in 1947. They celebrated sixty-three years of marriage June 7, 2010, just five days before he passed away on June 12.

Dick and Audrey raised their two children in Whittier, California and moved to Marion with their son and wife in 2009 where they were active members of Marion’s First Church of the Nazarene.

Audrey is survived by her son, Steve (Cindy) deWeber of Marion; and daughter, Rebecca (Don) Black of Lake Elsinore, CA. She had six grand-children, Penny Black, Flavia (Sam) Gibson and Candace (Dan) Toth, all of Madison, WI, Adam (Gretchen) deWeber of Raleigh, NC, Eric (Laura) deWeber of Boca Raton, FL and Amy deWeber of Nashville, TN. She is also survived by ten great-grand children, one sister, one brother and countless nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband and a granddaughter, Kristi deWeber.

Audrey lived to raise her family and live out her faith by serving God in the church. She was a good wife, mother, grandmother and friend, working her entire career in the steel industry in Los Angeles. She is dearly loved and will be greatly missed. Wednesday night she was “changed in the twinkling of an eye” and is now likely rehearsing with Heaven’s choir, in the soprano section.

The family expresses deep gratitude to Joyce’s Angels and Heartland Hospice.

A visitation will be held Monday, April 20, 2015 from 5:00-8:00pm at First Church of the Nazarene, 233 W Church St., Marion, Ohio with the funeral service on Tuesday, April 21, 2015 at 10:30 am at the church with Pastor Don Diehl officiating. Burial will follow in Marion Cemetery. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to First Church of the Nazarene. Gunder/Hall & Folk Funeral Directors, a division of Snyder Funeral Homes, is honored to have been chosen to serve the DeWeber Family.

  • Steve, Cindy & all of the DeWebers, Mama DeWeber was nothing short of being an awesome lady. She was a glowing example of a Christian which lives on today in the legacy of her family. Wish we could be there with you but you are in our thoughts and prayers. Miss and love you!!!

  • Steve and Cindy, my deepest condolences to you and your family. Your mother was a shining light with a bright smile and beautiful heart. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  • I am so saddened to learn of Audrey’s passing. Her kind spirit and warm heart will never be forgot. I will always cherish the countless times I got to spend at the deWeber household with her and the doggies 🙂 we all loved her dearly. She was a wonderful cook as well. I still talk about how good her chicken and pork chops taste! And, getting to see her smiling face at the YMCA was like a ray of sunshine. She was dedicated for sure! I am so blessed to have known her and the deWeber family. You are all an amazing family. Love and God bless!

  • So sorry to hear of your loss but happy for Audrey’s gain. This is such a hard time for those of use left behind. Won’t it be a glorious day when we all get together again! I know your Mom and my Dad will be anxiously waiting. We would have liked to have been with you last evening to give you a hug, but sickness kept us away. Our thoughts and prayers and love are with you.
