Delphine Overmyer Howe

September 24, 1937 — March 1, 2022


Delphine Howe was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend.  She passed away surrounded by family on March 1st at the age of 84. Delphine was the daughter of Carlyle and Florence (Fulkert) Overmyer. She graduated from Harris-Elmore High School and married Preston Howe, of Sarasota, FL, in 1956.  Delphine was the matriarch of the Howe family and was always planning the next family gathering with an abundance of food and lots of love. As an avid Buckeye fan, Ohio State games and marching band half-time shows were the highlight of her fall Saturday afternoons.
