BIOGRAPHY

DeMuth was born as Marie Ann Dresden in Mineral Point, Wisconsin, as the eldest of eight children born to William and Catherine (Schill) Dresden. As a young adult, she was employed as a milliner in Milwaukee.

In 1926, DeMuth married her first husband, Carl H. King. They had one son, Carl Jr.

DeMuth was widowed in 1961. Three years later, she remarried to Vincent D. DeMuth. The marriage lasted 11 years before she was widowed a second time. Her lifelong hobby was collecting dolls.
