Elaine Grether

CUYAHOGA FALLS - Elaine (Schiesser) Grether, 95, went home to be with her Lord on July 12th, 2020. Born in Syracuse, New York, she spent most of her adult life in the Northampton area.

Her family and her faith were the two most important parts of her life. Through her faith, she led by example and shared her faith by witnessing to others. She was a prayer warrior, a choir member, a member of the praise team, a part of various women’s organizations, and she served her church in many other capacities throughout her life. Whenever Elaine was asked about the secret to her longevity, she always responded by saying, “Jesus lives in me.”

Preceded in death by husband of 53 years, Harvey; parents Ernest and Florence Schiesser, brother Kenneth, sister Peggy Vukan. She is survived by daughters Sandee Grether Mick, Jayne (Dave) Growley; grandchildren, Chris (Kristen) Mick, Audrey (Chris) Cunert; great-grandsons, Blaine Mick and Nico Cunert; sister Shirley Fahrny; many nieces and nephews.

Cremation has taken place. Pastors Keith Johnson and Andy Alberts will conduct a Celebration of Life on Tuesday, July 21 at Tallmadge Lutheran Church, 759 East Ave, Tallmadge, OH 44278 at 6:30 PM.
