From Obituaries in The Inquirer: Mary Augusta "Dusty" Biddle daughter of Henry Canby Biddle and Margaret Seton Fleming. She married Philadelphia lawyer William Henry Snyder Jr who died in 1951 at age 41, leaving her a widow with three young children. In 1952, she married Gordon Stouffer, chairman of Stouffer Foods, who adopted her children. The family lived in Cleveland.
Stouffer died in 1956, soon after the couple returned home from an African animal-capture safari for the Cleveland Zoo. In 1960, she returned to the Philadelphia area, where she married architect William Cramp Scheetz Jr. He died in 1996.
