IRON MOUNTAIN — Marie H. DeMuri, known by everyone near and dear to her as Nona, 94, of Iron Mountain, passed away on Sunday, Aug. 26, 2018, at Maryhill Manor in Niagara, Wis.
She was born May 9, 1924, in Iron Mountain, daughter of the late Ignatz and Lena (Schwenner) Warmuth. Marie graduated from Felch High School in 1942 and went on to attend St. Mary’s School of Nursing in Milwaukee where she earned her degree as a Registered Nurse.
She married Guido DeMuri on June 25, 1949, at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Iron Mountain. He preceded her in death on May 7, 2012. They enjoyed 62 years of marriage. To celebrate their 50th anniversary, they enjoyed an Alaskan Cruise with family.
Marie was employed at Dickinson County Memorial Hospital as a Registered Nurse for nearly 20 years, retiring in 1987. She was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.

Marie enjoyed playing Canasta with friends and relatives, reading, and watching sports, especially football. She loved spending time with family and going to her grandchildren’s sporting events and activities over the years. Marie loved to cook and took great pride in feeding others. No one ever left her house hungry. Marie always welcomed neighborhood children at her home, where they would enjoy help with their homework and ice cream floats. She frequently served as the neighborhood nurse.
While at Maryhill Manor she enjoyed the activities they provided, some of which included bonfires, singing, and musical entertainment brought in by Maryhill. She enjoyed playing Crazy Eights with family and other Maryhill residents who became like family to her.
