Mary and I were friends for many years. We were colleagues at the East Mona. schools. I will always have good memories. Please let me know when the memorial service will be held. I would like to attend.

So sorry to hear of Mary's passing. I baby sat with Mary and her brothers years ago. She was a sweet girl, much like her Mother Helen, who I took piano lessons from, and who was also a very caring lady. Rest in peace.

I am so sorry for your loss. I did not realize she was back in Woodbine. She is gone too soon. Donna Barry

Ms. Deupree was my teacher and FCCLA adviser for a very short time at Malvern, but she made a tremendous impact. She inspired me and instilled within me a drive toward excellence in FCCLA. Even after she moved on to another school, she always made it a point to offer guidance. I can't thank her enough. Rest in peace, ma'am.

Mary Deupree taught at the Malvern High School when my daughter was in school. So enjoyed her friendship during her teaching career at Malvern. My sincere sympathy to her family. Mary will be missed by many who knew and loved her.

This is so sad. Mary was a beautiful little girl when I took music lessons from her Mother. Her Mother was a wonderful and grand lady.

She was a class act all the way around. She had nothing but kind words to say about her students. She treated them all the same, and pushed them beyond their limits. Besides being a great teacher and a huge motivator, she was an outstanding friend to the students and staff.

Her Kindness and Thoughtfullness will never be replaced.

Hold her close to your heart, Cherish her memories.

Remember Yesterday, Dream About Tomorrow, but Live for Today.

Blessings, my friends.

I was a student of Mrs. Dupree back in Missouri Valley High School. She was one of my favorite teachers she was the best cooking teacher that I've ever had. You will be greatly missed! Fly High Mrs. Deupree

I'm so sorry to hear of Miss Deupree's passing. She was my Home Economics and Art teacher in High school at the now dissolved East Monona school in Moorhead. I graduated in 1984, I don't recall her exact years of teaching there. She was a FUN teacher, and we learned a lot from her. As recently as 10-12 years ago, she and I reconnected and had lunch with another fellow teacher from that era, whom she was good friends with
