Frances Jean Stopar, 93, of Barberton, OH, passed away peacefully on March 29th, 2019.
Frances was born on August 19, 1925 to Joseph and Jennie Hete of Barberton, OH where she was a lifelong resident.
Preceding her in death was the love of her life and husband of 50 years, Joseph Stopar and all eight siblings: Sr. Celine, Ann, Matilda, Jennie, Frank, Charles, Joseph and Mary.
Frances is survived by daughters, Diane Stevenson (John) and Charlene Martin (David); grandchildren, Jennifer DeVore (Rusty), Jason Martin (Melanie), Joshua Martin (Mary), and John Stevenson; great-grandchildren, Sydney Stevenson, Brynn Martin, Brandt Martin, Race DeVore, Daniel Martin; and many nieces and nephews.
Frances, or “Francie” to many, lived her life in service to God, her family, her church, and her neighbors and friends. She was hardworking, kindhearted, and an amazing cook and baker. One never forgot a meal prepared by Francie.
