Mary E. (Butler) Fleming

January 1, 1929 ~ July 14, 2017 (age 88)

It is with great sadness the family of Mary E. Fleming shares the passing of their beloved mother on Friday, July 14, 2017 at Community Health Professionals Inpatient Hospice Center.  She was born on New Years Day 1929 in Pioneer, Ohio a daughter of Winfred and Grace (Farling) Butler, both of whom are deceased.  On April 22, 1946 she married the love of her life, James L. Fleming, who preceded her in death.

Mary is survived by her children, a son, Phillip J. (Kathy) Fleming, 2 daughters, Pamela S. (Jim) Morris and Pauline K. Fleming.  Also surviving are her grandchildren: Kelly, Tiffany, Derek, Ryan, Jamie, and Zach and 12 great grandchildren.  Also surviving is her sister, Mildred Dick.

She was preceded in death by 2 brothers, Paul Robert and Carl Butler, 2 sisters, Nellie Crow and Ruth Fulmer. 

Mary started her working career at the Overall factory on Main Street.  She then joined the workforce at Aeroquip Corporation in their first week of operations and continued working there for 35 years until she retired. 

Our mother loved nature and the outdoors.  She especially liked mowing her lawn which she continued to do up to 2 months before her death.

She was a longtime member of St. Paul's Reformed Church and she was especially proud of raising three Christian children. 

Per our mother's wish there will be no visitation or services.  Burial of the cremated remains will be at a later date in Van Wert Woodland Cemetery.

Preferred Memorials may be made to Community Health Professionals Inpatient Hospice Center and St. Paul's Reformed Church.
