Obituary of Marion L. Desotelle
Please share a memory of Marion to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Marion L. (Brelia) Desotelle, passed January 5, 2023 after a lengthy illness. She was preceded in death by her husband, George, Sr., her siblings, Martha, Barbara, Howard and her parents, Adolphus and Blanche Brelia. Survived by her children, Joe, Steve, Paul, Ann, John, 2 Step children, George, Jr. and Mary, her brother, John, 6 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. She loved her family, her loyal friends to the end, and her Church. Her hands were never idle especially proving her talents with her exceptional baking, sewing and knitting projects. Her kindness was evident with knitting and donating pediatric caps for all the newborns. Although her primary job was at home, she later in life could be found at Northern Orchards, Trebor Manufacturing, CVPH as a nurses’ aide, and House of Sewing. Her love of travel took her on many memorable cruises to Mexico, and other places like Germany, Florida, Hawaii, Buffalo and Pennsylvania, visiting her children whenever she could. The family extends a special heartfelt “thank you” to her caring aides who were so much more to her, who helped this independent woman gracefully navigate the last few years of her life. A celebration of “Marion/Mom/Grandma/Great Grandma/Momma Bear” will take place in the spring, with details to be announced. Arrangements are in the care of the Hamilton Funeral Home, 294 Mannix Road, Peru, 643-9055.
