Mayme S. Dernoncourt, 81, of Charleston, died Feb. 12, 2004, at St. Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau.
Born Sept. 9, 1922, in Charleston, daughter of the late George U. and Waneta Martin Shelby Sr., she lived in Charleston most of her life. After living in Leawood, Kan., for 12 years and Maples, Fla., for seven years, she recently returned to Charleston. She was a member of the Church of the Nativity at Leawood.
On Dec. 14, 1956, she married Dr. John E. Dernoncourt who survives of the home.
Other survivors include: two daughters, Bonnie Story and Cathy Dernoncourt; two sisters, Frances Brewer and Nancy Thurmond; three grandsons and two granddaughters-in-law, Albert Loebe Story III, John Dernoncourt and Cindy Story, George Shelby and B.K. Story; one granddaughter and grandson-in-law, Abbie Lynn and Ben LeFevre; and six great-grandchildren, Ashley Drury, Dylan Drury, Court Story, George Story, Caroline LeFevre and Tucker LeFevre.
She was preceded in death by one brother, George U. Shelby Jr.; and one sister, Evelyn Lowery.
Visitation was held at McMikle Funeral Home in Charleston.
A funeral Mass was celebrated at St. Henry Catholic Church in Charleston with the Rev. Stephen Schneider officiating.
Burial followed in the IOOF Cemetery at Charleston.

Honorary pallbearers were: James Bogle, Warren E. Hearnes, Bart Weiss, Ed C. Marshall, Marion Waggener, George Simmons, Byron Moxley, Nelson Brewer, Roy Shelby, Sam Lowery Jr.
Mimi will be remembered as a fun-loving woman who enjoyed her crossword puzzles and playing boccie ball with her husband and friends. Her wonderful sense of humor and outer beauty was exceeded only by her inner strength and kindness.
Strongly devoted to her faith and family, Mimi will be deeply missed by all.
