Enjoyed making holidays special for family

Jane H. Virden, 77, of Tallmadge, died March 30, 2014. She was born in Akron Jan. 10, 1937, to the late John and Henrietta Ciborek.

Mrs. Verdin always enjoyed making the holidays special -- from Easter eggs hunts to decorating the house for Christmas -- for her family, especially her grandchildren. She loved to cook and was an avid reader. Her greatest joy was spending time with Charlie and her grandchildren.

Mrs. Verdin is survived by her husband of 54 years, Kenneth; children, Jeff (Karen) and Debra (Nick) Giannakos; grandchildren, Katie and Lindsey Virden, Nicholas and Shawn Giannakos; friend, Charlie; sister, Barbara (Roger) Jardine; and numerous nieces and nephews.
