He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away.” We are eternally grateful to God for giving us Mom for 91 years. We had the best mom you could have ever asked. She was always there for us, a great mom and friend. And definitely the best cook ever!  We will never forget Mom’s delicious food and especially her great kifli, kolach and many Christmas cookies, her stuffed cabbage and fried chicken and gravy. She made homemade buttermilk biscuits from scratch every night for Dad. And her cream pies; scrumptious! Her heart was broken when her oldest son, John, died when he was only 18 years old from cancer. We know there was an incredible reunion on Good Friday.

Arlene Margaret Kern (nee Mueller)

Arlene Margaret Kern (nee Mueller) died April 19, with her loving family by her side. She was born on August 28, 1923, in Menasha, Wis. and was a resident of Norton for 57 years. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Lawrence, to whom she enjoyed 65 years of marriage; parents, John F. and Mabel V. Mueller; brothers, Ralph (Dorothy) Mueller, John Mueller and sister, Patricia (William) Pagel. She leaves behind her daughter, Terri Pouliot (Mark); and son, Keith Kern.   A huge void will be felt by her grandchildren she leaves behind. Tracy Sheppard (Sean), Bettie Jo Christie, Jamie Madigan (Tina) and Jason Kern (Teresa). Arlene also leaves behind 15 great-grandchildren who adored her. She was very close to each of them and loved being involved in their lives and spending time with them.  She also had the rare privilege of having one great-great-grandchild. Arlene was a World War II Veteran and proud member of Coast Guard SPARS. She was an active member of the North Coast WAVES. She was also a lifetime member of the VFW in Norton. Arlene counted it a privilege to serve her country in its time of need. Arlene was devoted to her family and found so much joy in spending time with each of them. She especially loved preparing huge family meals at holiday times or family celebrations. She always insisted on hosting such family gatherings, even as her family grew. She loved cooking and baking and enjoyed time in the kitchen trying out that new recipe. Arlene was very active in her church, The Columbia Church of Christ, in Barberton and was an original member of the Dorcas Class.  Her giving and unselfish spirit was evident in the volunteer work she did with the area’s soup kitchens as well as serving church dinners when the need arose. She gave of her time freely and asked nothing in return. Arlene was truly a member of "The Greatest Generation" and her spirit and energy was paralleled to none. She was a dedicated wife and mother as well as grandmother. There was nothing she would not do to make the lives of others easier. She was a loyal friend to so many and always looking for ways to lend a helping hand.  She often visited nursing homes to take small gifts or flowers to brighten the day of a friend or someone less fortunate. Arlene loved dancing when her husband was alive and was a lifetime member of the Country Music Association. Together they knew how to attract attention as they were always admired for the way they danced together. She also enjoyed cruises and traveling on the ocean. Arlene remained active up until her last days; enjoying early mornings spent at the Barberton YMCA, where she enjoyed swimming, the treadmill, stepper or rowing machine. She was admired by everyone for her pep and stamina. She quickly made a group of friends there, who referred to her as "The Youngster", because she was so fit and active. She also stayed active in the Wadsworth Alzheimer’s Support group long after her husband’s long suffering from the disease. She made friends wherever she went and she loved being around people. She leaves behind many of those friends who will especially feel her absence.  Arlene was a joy-filled Christian woman in every sense of the word. She was considered the family "peace-keeper" and unconditionally loved everyone, never judging anyone. She always chose to see the good side of everyone and everything.  Arlene’s earthly presence will be greatly missed. She was a remarkable woman with so many interesting stories to tell. She lived an amazing life, creating so much love and joy in the lives she touched. She never met a stranger and was an inspiration to everyone who knew her. An empty space in our hearts has been created that will never be filled by another. We will wrap ourselves in the warmth of beautiful memories she created that will be treasured forever. Funeral service is Friday, April 25, 9:15 a.m., at Cox Funeral Home, 222 Norton Ave, Barberton. Rev. John M. Henniger officiating. Family will receive friends from 8:15 a.m. until time of service.

Judith A. Saxon (Judy)

Dear family and friends; the sun rose on Nov. 19, 1941 and set on April 7 for me. The interim of 72 years was a marvelous adventure. God afforded me numerous opportunities and gifted me with many talents. That combination allowed me to acquire an extensive education that enhanced my teaching career. A special thanks to all the students I have had over a 50 year teaching career. Every student added a thread or two to the fabric of me. (Some even added a few grey hairs!) To Bob and Vilma (my brother and his wife) and to Joyce (my sister), I so appreciated your love and support as I, the radical midget, went off on another adventure. To my numerous nieces and nephews, thanks for letting me be a part of your life. To Mary Anne and Joan, it was a privilege to be your aunt but a greater honor to call you my friend. To the general populous, if I helped you in any way, praise God. If I offended you, I ask your forgiveness. If I ignored you, I apologize. As I transition into a new realm of existence, know that God holds you in the palm of his hand. Peace, Judy. Cremation has taken place.
