Northern Kentucky Fund Honors Clyde and Mary Middleton

Clyde Middleton and his late wife Mary are being honored for philanthropy in Northern Kentucky.
Cincinnati, OH - August 22, 2012 - The Northern Kentucky Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation honored Clyde and the late Mary Middleton with the Devou Cup at the Northern Kentucky Chamber Annual Dinner on September 6, 2012.

The Devou Cup was created in 2004 to honor the generosity of a donor who has made a profound difference in the quality of community life in Northern Kentucky, today and tomorrow. The award was named in honor of the generosity exemplified by William Devou, a 19th century philanthropist.   

When Mary passed away in 2011, countless people expressed that they had lost a friend, advocate, a leader, and devoted Northern Kentuckian.  Some knew Mary as a Salvation Army red kettle bell ringer, others as a kind soul who drove patients to chemotherapy appointments, or the neighbor who left a card welcoming them to the neighborhood. She was also known as someone not afraid to face a challenge. Mary was the first Northern Kentucky Republican woman to run for office. She was the first president of the Kenton County Republican Women’s Club, the Booth Hospital Women’s Auxiliary and the Northern Kentucky Heritage League.

Mary also taught in the Cincinnati Public Schools at McMillan Center. In 1981, The Cincinnati Enquirer named Mary one of its “Women of the Year.”

Clyde has also been active in the Northern Kentucky community through politics, work and volunteering. He served in the State Senate from 1967 until 1986 serving part of Kenton County and all of Boone County.  He also co-chaired the successful petition drive for the Kenton County Library. 

Clyde and Mary were both active in their church, Gloria Dei Lutheran in Crestview Hills, Kentucky, and Clyde volunteers every Tuesday in the Parish kitchen.

Mike Hammons, Director of Advocacy at Children, Inc., shared his thoughts about the Middletons. 

“No one ever gave more of themselves to their community than Mary and Clyde Middleton,” he said. “Philanthropy and community service were part of their DNA. They supported many, many worthwhile causes and organizations that helped to make Northern Kentucky a special place to live. They supported the arts, education, civic engagement, good government, justice and fairness, the poor, interfaith relations and many others. They gave money and they gave their time and they did so to an extraordinary degree. You would see them behind nearly every important cause – participating in and often planning fundraisers, public meetings and events in support of these causes. They loved their community and they showed that in the loving way they went about their work to support it. They had a fierce pride for Northern Kentucky and instilled that pride in all of us who knew them. I’m pleased to see them honored with the Devou Cup and only wish that Mary had lived to receive it in person.”
