In Rehoboth Beach, Delaware with her daughter at her side, Marie Arthur went to join her beloved dearly departed loved ones and her final resting place with the Lord on Monday, November 23, 2009. Marie had fought a strong battle against ovarian cancer lasting less than a year.

A 1947 graduate of Wilmington High School and a former employee of the Wilmington News Journal, Marie had retired from the Dupont Co., Newport Pigments Department.

Ryan Kelley of Bristol CT, Casey Scott Wiedmann of Lewes, DE, Heather Marie Mitchell (Daryll) of Wilmington, DE, Holly Gouge of New Castle, DE and William Scott Gouge of New Castle, DE; her great-grandchildren, Andrew, Evan, Nathan, Adian, Bridget and Owen Hughes; Erica, Lindsey, David and Ryan Hutchinson, Amber Marie Cooper, Destiny McIntosh, Joanna Marie Henly and Mason Wiedmann. She was blessed with many loving nieces and nephews and friends who called her "mommom". She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 57 years, Allen Scott Arthur in 2006 and her son, Allen Scott Arthur II in 1972. Also preceding her were her parents, Clarence and Margaret (Graham) Jester and her brother, Jack.
