     Obituary from The Detroit Free Press (Detroit, Michigan), 28 March 2000:
Delores O. Maylen: Former teacher and Avid Traveler

Delores 0. Maylen, a former teacher who was as passionate about cooking and traveling as she was for her students, died March 16 of a brain hemorrhage at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. Mrs. Maylen was 68.

A Lathrup Village resident, the former Delores Bezanson was born in Pontiac and attended Baldwin High School in Birmingham.

The 1953 Michigan State University graduate taught in El Paso, Texas, the Birmingham school system and the Walled Lake district. She later worked as a secretary-treasurer for the Douglas Stamping Co. The company makes metal stampings for the automotive inustry and was founded by her father and later run by her husband, David Maylen Jr. She worked for the company for 39 years.

As a member of the air travel club called Nomads, Mrs. Maylen logged 179 trips with the group and was a million-mile plus traveler. Her favorite trips included photo shoots in Africa and New Orleans, where she and her husband of 46 years honeymooned.

"The music and seafood kept drawing her back to New Orleans," said her youngest son, Matthew Maylen.

She also was a member of the Circumnavigators Club and a 30-year member of the Lathrup Village Women's Club. She was co-chairperson of her high school's 10th, 25th, 40th and 50th class reunions.

"She was very friendly and loved to read and play card and board games," Matthew Maylen said. "She was an avid cook, too." "Today, it would be hard to imag-ine families sitting down for a meal, but we sat down to break-fast and dinner every day. Thanks to her, I do all the cooking in the house now."

Besides her husband and youngest son, other survivors include sons David Maylen III and Nicholas Maylen; a sister, and four grandchildren. A memorial service will be April 8 at 9:30 a.m. at the First Presbyterian Church of Birmingham, 16669 W. Maple.4
