Obituary for Mary Elizabeth DePuy

Mary (Betty) Elizabeth DePuy, 97 years young, a lifelong resident of Middletown, New York, died peacefully at home on July 28, 2014 surrounded by her family. She was born December 13, 1916 to Elizabeth (Allen) and James Finnegan. She was a wonderful mother and wife, and loving grandmother and great-grandmother with a care free attitude which made her fun in all aspects of life.

She was predeceased by her loving husband, Harrison (Hap) DePuy; her sisters, Doris Finnegan and Kathryn Osborne and her husband William; her son-in-law, M. Robert McCarey; and sister-in law, Madlyn Bethards. She was a member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church and a member of the Columbiettes. She was a homemaker for most of her life, but who can forget her waiting on you at the Mohegan Grocery and at Tompkins Dry Goods or being greeted by her at the Rag Shop; and how we remember the trips to Florida with her sister Kate!

Betty leaves behind to cherish her memories her daughter Patricia A. McCarey of Clear Lake, IA and Ft. Pierce, FL; her son James E. DePuy and his wife Susan of Middletown, NY; her daughter Mary M. DePuy of Middletown, NY; and her son Thomas M.

McCarey and his wife Julie and their children Katelyn and Harrison of Newton, IA; Brian P. McCarey and his wife Katherine and their children Andrew, Erin, Austin and Meghan of Byron, IL; Christopher A. DePuy and his former wife Catherine and their children Catherine, Rohan and Finnegan of Portola Valley, CA; Elizabeth A. Boyle and her husband Matthew and their children Luca and Wyatt of Goshen, NY; Gregory J. DePuy and his wife Catherine and their children Collins and Dempsey of Johnson, NY; Jonathan P. DePuy and his wife Rachel and their children Adeline and Maple of Hotchkiss, CO; Kevin M. DePuy and his wife Allison and their children Elizabeth and Clara of Missoula, MT; Sandra M. Friel and her husband Peter of Hillsdale, NJ and his children Laura and Ryan; her furry “grandchild” Ben; and her recent Sunday dinner partner, Gabrielle.
