Barbara Wayton
Barbara Wayton, age 95 of Colleyville, TX and formerly Toledo left this earth peacefully on September 20, 2021 surrounded by her family. She was born and raised in Salem, Connecticut to Marianne and Andrew Rambush on June 11, 1926 and was second youngest of 12. After a brief 2 years in Boston, she moved to Toledo and was married for 24 years, and raised her 5 children and eventually moved to Colleyville, TX to help with her grandchildren in Texas.
She had 11 siblings, 1 husband, 5 children, 17 grandchildren and 8 great. She loved her son and daughter in laws and their families.
In many ways she was cut from the same cloth as Martha Stewart. With her deepfaith as her guide she was determined, capable, hardworking, playful, curious, organized, empathetic and ran a beautiful household. She gave her children many opportunities including music, art, sports, or whatever they chose. Because she prioritized family, education, and travel we all attended college and "have car will travel" experienced both coasts and all in between including Disneyland, National Parks, the White House, picnics on the Potomac, Connecticut and Flordia at a young age. Most importantly her elegance belied her humility. Having a strong work ethic, she held various retail jobs. Never did she think and job was beneath her and if necessary would turn it into an art form. Especially notable from a young age was her kindness toward the marginalized and the elderly and she respected all walks of life.
Left to cherish her memory are her children, June (Erwin) Effler, Rebecca (Lauren) Huddleston, Jeffrey (Kim) Wayton, Sean Wayton, Erik (Kim) Wayton; 16 grandchildren, Taylor (deceased); and 8 great grandchildren and the many many lives that she touched. She was especially loved by many of her grandchildren's friends whose stories are non ending with love and humor.
Special thank you to Sarah and Grace, her loving and devoted caretakers and all of her doctors and nurses. A celebration of life will take place in Texas on October 3rd. The family asks that any tributes made be to the charity of the donors choice.

Elizabeth "Beth" Zajac Liskai age 65, of Gibsonburg and formerly of Woodville passed away at Firelands Regional Medical Center in Sandusky, on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. She was born November 24, 1955 in Sylvania, OH to Glenn and Evelyn (Mericle) Maddy. Beth graduated from Gibsonburg High School in 1974 and earned an Associate's Degree from Bowling Green State University. On October 3, 1981 she married Gary Zajac in Gibsonburg. Beth and Gary raised 3 children and enjoyed nearly 30 years of marriage before Gary's death in May of 2011. Beth would find love again and on March 16, 2013 she married David Liskai at Solomon Lutheran Church in Woodville. Beth and David have blended their families and celebrated over 8 years of marriage together.

Beth loved all things Christmas – the food, the music, Santa Claus, her North Pole Village, and most especially, spoiling her children and grandchildren. Nevertheless, her greatest joy was spending time with her family.
While we will miss her immensely, we take solace in the fact that she has been reunited with Dad (Gary). We are also grateful for the second chance at love she was given with David. She was a blessed woman indeed, but we were ultimately the blessed ones, being able to call her 'Mom'.

Janet "Jan" Ann Heiman
Janet "Jan" Ann Heiman, 91 of Sylvania, Ohio passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 23, 2021, after a period of gradual, declining health. She was born on September 18, 1930, in Tontogany, Ohio to Glen and Anna (Davis) Wade. Jan married Robert Rex Heiman in 1957 in Fostoria, Ohio and together they raised a son and daughter. After graduation from Weston High School in 1948, Janet studied elementary education at BGSU. She worked as a waitress making $.19 cents an hour plus tips to help pay for her education. She declined an offer to design Hallmark cards to pursue her teaching dream. Jan graduated Summa Cum Laude in 1952 with a Bachelor of Elementary Education degree. Her first teaching job was in Fostoria, OH. Some of her proudest moments were receiving letters and compliments, years later from former student's parents thanking Jan for her dedication to teaching and helping those students to succeed in life. Janet was a long-time member of the Sylvania First United Methodist Church which she faithfully attended and also taught Sunday School and sang in the church choir. Jan and Bob spent over 30 years during the winter months in Bradenton, FL first in "wheel town" and then later in their "coach". They enjoyed the Gulf beaches, "early bird" dinners, bowling, shuffleboard, and playing Skip-Bo cards with their numerous FL friends. They also enjoyed trips to Hawaii, Alaska and Branson, MO. In their earlier years, summers were always spent taking family vacations while pulling a travel trailer all around the country. They especially made many trips to Myrtle Beach, S.C. She also loved fishing, quilting, sewing hundreds of creative outfits, sweatshirts, and pajamas as gifts for all family members. She was known within her FL neighborhood and Oakleaf as the "lady with the beautiful quilted jackets." Her stash of fabrics, sewing supplies and equipment was unequalled. Her greatest joy was hearing her grandchildren's achievements and attending their sporting events and activities in all kinds of weather and watching from their folding chairs. Bob and Jan were the greatest fans and supporters. She also found time for reading, walking, and watching college sports games with Bob on TV. Jan was a very loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother.
She is survived by her son, Robert "Rob" (Tami); daughter, Jennifer "Jenny" (David) Rowlson; grandchildren, Lucas "Luke" (Melinda), Blake (Caitlyn), and Ross Heiman, Kylee (Hussein) Awada; and great-granddaughter, Isla Heiman.

9/25/2021 Joann M Schwind - Obituaries

Joann M Schwind
Joann Schwind passed to eternal life at ProMedica Ebeid Hospice Residence on September 22, 2021. Born May 20, 1947, Joann graduated from Rogers High School. She met the love of her life James "Jimmy" Schwind (1944 -2006), when she was a young girl while he was working on a neighboring farm. They married on January 7, 1967, and this happy union produced four children. Joann worked for the First National Bank (currently Fifth Third Bank) until she took her most important and appreciated role as being a stay-at-home mom, field trip chaperone, chef, and traffic/schedule cop to four kids born in 5 years! She eventually returned to Fifth Third where she retired in 2010.
Joann traveled extensively throughout the United States to support and enjoy polka music with Jim and the many friends that they met through this passion. Joann also had great enthusiasm for her Green Bay Packers, Nascar, puzzling, and, most importantly, her family. The thing that she enjoyed most in life were her grandkids. Joann and Jim told us often to always stay close to our siblings as they would be the ones that get us through the trials of life. She left an amazing legacy.
If you know of anything of what Joann went through in the last 14 years, you know what a warrior she was. She had some major hurdles and amazingly left them in her rear-view mirror.
Left to cherish her memory are her children, son, James Jr.; daughters, Christine Welsh (Dave), Sandra Rodriguez (Michael) and Jennifer Engler (John); six grandchildren, Nicholas Fox-Schwind, Hannah Engler, Graesyn Engler, Gabriel Pawlak, Gabrielle Welsh, and Dominic Welsh; brothers, Eugene, Roy and Louie; and sister, Marilyn. She is preceded in death by her husband Jim; parents, Aloysius and Helen Gedert; brothers, Gerald, Leonard and Daniel.
Friends may visit on Monday from 3-8:00 p.m. at the W.K. Sujkowski and Son Funeral Home, 3838 Airport Hwy. A Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, September 28, at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church at 10:00 a.m. where friends may visit after 9:00 a.m. Interment will follow at Resurrection Cemetery. The family suggests donations to the St. Vincent DePaul Society.
The family would like to express a special thank you to her sister-in-law, Barb Schwind, who provided Joann with much love and helped us through this very difficult time.
With the utmost love, respect, and admiration we say goodbye. With profound sadness, we reluctantly return Joann to the Lord. We will miss you Joann, Jo, Mom, Mommy, and Busi!
"Love as powerful as your mother's for you leaves its own mark.
To have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever."
