Eve M. Metelsky

She is preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, Andrew Metelsky in 2001; sister, Mary R. Marlowe and parents, Frank and Mary (nee Kalo) Vance of Akron, Ohio.

Aunt Eve was part of my life for many years. Her and Uncle Andy where always around and are part of me. There are many memories we have made through all those years, my favorite being the time I was on leave from the Air Force. I came over to their house and Uncle Andy was painting a bedroom. Well, I ended up helping him paint and after a few too many drinks, the room was not the same. Aunt Eve had to repaint it the next day. She was not happy about our escapades. To Frankie, Silvia , Georgie, Johnny, Vicki and Debbie - I wish you peace. You all have also been a big influence in my life. I remember crying to go back to Lorain, when Chrissy and I stayed in Akron. Love, Ed and Margaret.
