Marie Helen Dewolfe Hawthorne
Birth: Apr. 24, 1918
Queens County
New York, USA
Death: Jan. 14, 2007
Mount Vernon
Westchester County
New York, USA

Marie Helen deWolfe Hawthorne, age 88, passed away quietly early in the morning on January 14, 2007. Always the lady, she gallantly battled her quick illness that started in September, 2006.

Born in Astoria, Queens, NY, Marie then grew up in the Bronx & attended the College of New Rochelle(NY) & earned a degree in English Lit. in 1939. She appeared in several radio soap operas in the 40's & 50's. She also taught at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City for over 35 years, focusing on makeup & costuming. Her real love & joy though, was writing plays & musicals for children & many of them were performed at Hoffman Camp & the Hoffman School in Riverdale, NY. Marie also enjoyed writing poetry, short stories, knitting & crocheting. Always so elegant was she, dressing beautifully & with perfect makeup. Her face & skin did not belie her age.

Predeceased by her beloved husband of about 64 years, Francis R. Hawthorne & her younger sister, Grace Elaine deWolfe Muthig. Survived by 2 daughters, Mary Louise & Shirin; 4 grandchildren, Elizabeth, Heather, Jennifer & Timothy; 1 great-granddaughter, Grace; & 1 brother, Jack.

Marie (or "Mimi" as her grandchildren & great-granddaughter called her), touched many lives & will be missed by all.

"Tally-ho & keep on dancing!"
