MARIAN HANNAN MIDDENDORF of Bethany Beach, Delaware, 93, died on Tuesday, August 14, 2018. Her husband of 68 years preceded her in death in January 2012.
Marian was a beloved mother of 12 children, all surviving: M. Sue, Barbara Prince (Fred), William B. (Bill) Jr. (Ellen), Michael, Margaret Mary (Peg) Libecap, Joan, Mary Patricia (Pattie), Nancy Erhart (Paul), Anne Bologna, Timothy (Nancy Robinson), Julie and John (Lisa). Other survivors include 18 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
Marian was beloved by all who knew her. She and Bill raised their children in Friendship Heights, DC. Just after their youngest child graduated from college, they moved to Bethany Beach Delaware and enjoyed many years of retirement before each died in their home as they had wished.
Any one who says that stay- at -home mothers don't work hard is sadly mistaken. Marian assisted Bill with his business from their home, answering telephones, scheduling, making deliveries, and even unloading stock into the garage until she was 62 years old! And of course, feeding, caring for, and loving her large family, as well as volunteering for many charities. She also sewed, made and mended the children's clothes, played bridge, helped the schools and parishes, and entertained members of the clergy and relatives who came to visit DC, many who were form foreign lands.
Marian will be sorely missed by her family and friends all over the country. She had looked forward for so long to be welcomed by God and reunited with the love her life, Bill.
