Lottie May (Edwards) Deuble Obituary
Lottie May Edwards Deuble, of Dover, passed away peacefully, Tuesday, April 11, 2017, at the Country Rest Home in Greenwood. She was 94.

Lottie was born July 2, 1922, in Franklinton, N.C., daughter of the late Lizzie Oakley and Kenneth Kenzie Edwards. At seven years of age she moved to Virginia and lived in McKenney, and then Colonial Heights, Va. During World War II she worked for C&P Telephone Company at which time she met and married First Lt. Harold W. Deuble while he was serving in the U.S. Army. After the war they settled in Dover. They were married over 60 years, until he passed away in 2003.

She was a member of First Baptist Church and held many positions of service. In 1976 Lottie and Harold moved to the Crow Indian Reservation in Prior, Mont., serving for two years as ABC missionaries among the Crow Native American Indians. After returning home to Dover in 1978, she wrote a book about their time on the reservation entitled "The Pierced Heart." She traveled seven times to the Holy Lands and enjoyed speaking in churches, schools and clubs about her trips to the Middle East. She enjoyed being a member of Dover Camera Club, Girl Scouts, Century Club and The Daughters of the American Revolution. She loved art, writing, reading and photography, and she lived a full life.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband; three sisters and three brothers; and a son-in-law, Joseph Scherry.

She is survived by three daughters and one son-in-law: Maria and Henry "Sandy" Pries of Magnolia, Harolyn "Lyn" Scherry of Wilmington and Janet Larry of Fairfax, Va.; a granddaughter and grandson-in-law, Kristi Pries and Gene Pleasanton of Dover; four grandsons, Chad Pries of Felton, Richard Griffith, III of Wilmington, and Nicholas Larry and Lucas Larry both of Cincinnati, Ohio; many nieces and nephews; and many loving friends.

The family would like to thank her friend and caregiver, Betty Bennett, of Dover, and the Country Rest Home in Greenwood for their loving, compassionate and professional care.

Services will be at noon, Thursday, April 20 in First Baptist Church in Dover, where friends and family may call one hour earlier. The Rev. Daniel Taylor, pastor, will officiate. Burial will be in Sharon Hills Memorial Park, Dover.

The family suggests memorial contributions to the First Baptist Church Foundation, 301 Walker Road, Dover, DE 19904.
