WOOSTER Marceile Frances (Martin) Dundon died suddenly on Tuesday, February 7, 2012 from a ruptured aortic aneurysm. She was born in Wooster June 1, 1930, to Ruth Frances (Mougin) and Herschel Jerome Martin.
Marceile graduated from St. Mary Grade School and from Wooster High School in 1948. She married George Edward Dundon in 1951 and moved to Akron, later living in Rittman, Independence and Medina.

During her working years, her favorite pastime was sewing for herself, her daughter and her home. After retirement, she did sewing and alterations for others.
