November 22, 1940 – June 18, 2022 (age 81)
On Saturday, June 18, 2022, Edythe Hoben-deLaehne, 81, was led home by angels. Daughter of the late John Millard Hoben and Genevieve Alice Lake, she was born November 22, 1940, in Newburgh. She is predeceased by her loving husband, Thomas deLaehne and the two were married June 8, 1984, in Staten Island.
Edythe loved genealogy and writing and so started her avid love of research of her family’s history dating back to the Mayflower and the Revolutionary War. Edythe was an active member of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) and belonged to multiple chapters. Her current membership is with the Quassaick Chapter in Newburgh and the Bytown Chapter in Ontario, Canada. She was a past member and Treasurer of the Abigail Bartholomew Chapter in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Edythe was a past member of the Red Hat Ladies in Daytona Beach, Florida and past member of the Winona Lake Firehouse Ladies Auxiliary, Newburgh. She had no fear of trying new things, whether pursing her love of cooking and catering large events to finishing Pharmacy Technician Training school.
