Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.

Memorial Trees

Circle of Life

In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

She resided most of her life in Painesville, Ohio. She moved to Arizona and resided there for 11 years before returning back to Ohio 5 years ago.

She was the kind of person who always thought first of the best interest of her husband, children and grandchildren. She was an amazing woman who loved life and all who were part of it. She always put others before herself. She was an exceptional woman.

She enjoyed spending time with her feline companions Alley, Katie and Ziggy. She loved baseball and her favorite ice cream. She loved to redecorate her home and had a knack of brightening up a room as she entered, as she always brought a smile to her beautiful face. She is truly an inspiration to all who knew her.

Great grandchildren Aubrey and Arianna. Sisters Loretta Wolf of Painesville and Kimberly (Michael) Pierce of Madison.

She was preceded in death by her parents Eugene and Mary Ellen Wolf and brother Garland (Laddie) Wolf.
