Marion Dean DeMott

Marion Dean DeMott died peacefully in his sleep on January 11, 2021, during the COVID pandemic. Gatherings were not recommended during the pandemic, so the services held on August 18, 2023, included both his wife Sharylon Joan and Marion Dean DeMott.

Marion Dean DeMott, better known as Dean by everyone, was born on October 14, 1931, to Robert and Goldie (Johnson) DeMott in Rural Labette County, Kansas.  On May 18, 1951, he married Sharylon Joan O’Brien in Edna, Kansas.  Following their marriage Dean was employed by Nutrena Mills for about 7 years.  The family moved to ElPasso, Texas due to the health of their son where he worked for the U.S. Postal Service.  After 8 years the family moved to Denison, Texas where he was transferred by the Postal Service where they resided until the children left home.  In 1977 Dean and Sharylon returned to Kansas to be near family and settled in Cherryvale, Kansas.  Dean began working at the Parson’s Post Office in 1978 and retired in 1978.  Dean and Sharylon were married for 69 years.

Dean was a member of the First Christian Church in Cherryvale and the National Letter Carrier Association.  His favorite pastime after retiring involved traveling to nearby casinos hoping to win big, which he often did.

He was preceded in death by his parents Robert Theodore and Goldie Mae DeMott and all of his siblings: Robert DeMott Jr., Wayne DeMott, Dorothea (DeMott) Welch and Donna (DeMott) Garding.  His wife Sharylon was laid to rest next to him in Spring Hill Cemetery, north of Coffeyville, Kansas on August 18, 2023.  He is survived by his children: Ronald Dean DeMott and Diana Lynn DeMott; two grandchildren:  Joshua DeMott and Nancy (DeMott) Matsuzawa: two great grandchildren Allen and Shona Matsuzawa
