Myrle E. Daubert


Myrle E. Daubert, widow of a retired Baltimore Sun printer and mother of another, died Thursday in Harrisburg, Pa., of congestive heart failure. She was 87.

"There isn't anything she hasn't read," said her son-in-law Francis X. Duggan. Mrs. Daubert was still beating people at Scrabble last week, he said.

Mrs. Daubert was born in Lebanon, Pa., on April 10, 1907. She was a homemaker all her adult life.

She belonged to the St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Harrisburg, its senior citizens group, the Over 50 Club and the Legion of Mary.

The former Myrle Light lived on Calvert Street in Baltimore for about 15 years, Mr. Duggan said. Her late husband, George A. Daubert, was a Sun printer, as was their son, Louis A. Daubert of Baltimore.

In addition to her son, Mrs. Daubert is survived by three daughters Barbara C. Duggan of Middletown, Pa., Bernadette Bowers of Etters, Pa., and Theresa A. Garber of Englewood, Fla.; two brothers Joseph Light and Ray Light, both of Denver, Pa.; 23 grandchildren; 38 great-grandchildren; and five great-great-grandchildren.

A Mass of Christian burial was to be offered at 11 a.m. today at the St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Harrisburg. Burial will be in the Resurrection Cemetery in Harrisburg.

Contributions may be made to St. Francis of Assisi Church, 1439 Market St., Harrisburg, Pa. 17102.
