Elynor Wilcox Depue, 89, of East Homer-Baltimore Rd., Homer, passed away on December 16, 2017.
She began her earthly journey on August 30, 1928, in Montrose, PA, as the daughter of George and Ethel Wilcox. She graduated from the Montrose High School in 1946, where she excelled academically, played clarinet in the marching band, and met a tall handsome farm boy named Paul Depue.
Elynor was an elementary music teacher in the Cortland School district; and served as choir director and piano/organ accompanist in local churches in Cortland, Liverpool, Tully, and Morrisville, NY. She retired from public school teaching in 1986.
Over the years, Elynor and Paul have opened their hearts and home to numbers of folks, helping equip new generations with skills in godliness and music.
So many are left missing her wit and wisdom, and the constancy of her loving ways, including her husband of 66 years, Paul; their 4 children, James (Anne) of Newfield, NY, Karna (Randy) Hoffman of Dillsburg, PA, Timothy (Valarie) of Lafayette, IN, and Gary (Linda) of Preble, NY. Add to these her brother, William (Priscilla) Wilcox of Montrose, PA; 20 grandchildren, and 10 great grandchildren.
The family invites you to join them from 11:00am – Noon on Friday at the Cortland Bible Baptist Church, 15 West Rd., Cortland, for a time of visiting.
Memorial services will immediately follow at noon.
