Marie Amarante Guibée, married Despagne, was born August 10, 1822 in Chartres and died April 30, 1892 in Versailles.

Mme Despagne, in her will of November 6, 1890, followed by numerous codicils, expressed herself thus:
"I ask the hospital administration to give my house the destination that my husband wanted it to have, that is to say an annex of the Hospital, an asylum for the elderly or children, well, what The Hospital will need it most, and this house will be named after my husband. I appoint as executors ... 33rd. - The sum which of my succession will remain vacant, I intend that it will be used entirely to arrange my house to place old men or children there, as my husband wanted, and I ask the Administrators of the City that remembrance of my husband's kindness to the poor, they keep this house for the unfortunate.
