She is survived by her husband, George; daughter, Laura (Robert) Mease; son, George (Cheryl) Carrick; and grandchildren, Chase, Collin, Conner Carrick and Dylan and Kaitlyn (her “Kate”) Mease; and stepbrother, Kenneth (Joan) Capello of Sidney, Ohio.
The family wishes to thank the nursing staff at Mercy Medical Center 9th floor for their compassion and service in her final days, the entire staff at Tri-County Hematology and Oncology for their efforts over the past two year to improve her physical health and to Father Matthew of St. Paul’s for his compassion and help in brightening her spiritual life.
She will be extremely missed by her family and those who knew her. As per her request, no calling hours will be held. Funeral Mass will be held at St. Paul’s North Canton in the future. Rest in peace and until we are all together again, Love you always.
