Arlene V. Ammerman, 86, peacefully passed away with her family by her side at her residence in Ravenna on Wednesday, February 12, 2014.

Arlene was born in Webster Springs, W.Va. on March 22, 1927 to parents Morgan and Leo Gregory.

Also surviving are her grandchildren: Jennifer (Rich) Smith, Carrie (Caley) Dantone-Schwartz, Brian Cheuvront, Melissa (Bud) Keener and three great-grandchildren. She also leaves her brother Homer Gregory and her sister Orva Armentrout.

Arlene was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Arlie L. Ammerman and her four brothers and three sisters.

What a blessing it is to have known "MOM" (as she insisted time and time again, for me to refer to her as...) She welcomed my mother, me and my family with open arms since the day we met. Every memory I have of her is loving, humorous and peaceful.She was never judgmental and I know she loved me for me. The tears I shed for her are ones of joy that she is no longer in pain and that she is now resting peacefully.

I will continue to pray for the family in their time of mourning.
