She leaves three daughters: Mrs. Linda (David) McCamon of Salineville, Mrs. Susan (James) Danko of Leetonia, and Mrs. Diane (Joseph) Corvino of Gold Canyon, Arizona; three sons, Robert (LeAnn) Schaeffer of Aurora, Edward (Patricia) Schaeffer of Leetonia, and William (Lisa) Arkwright Jr. of Lisbon; 18 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
Following her wishes, there are no calling hours or funeral services. Seederly-Mong and Beck Funeral Home was entrusted with her arrangements. The family expresses its appreciation to the staff at Coventry apartments and nursing home.
