Obituary

  Florence Rita Sheroian, age 98 of Toledo, Ohio passed away at the Rosary Care Center in Sylvania, Ohio on Monday, February 3, 2020 and was surrounded by her loving family. 

  Florence touched many lives throughout the community and her family. As the Matriarch of a large family she was blessed with eight children, 22 grandchildren, and 14 great grandchildren. Her life inspired many with her beautiful typed letters and cards until very recently. Photo taking, reading daily papers and TV local/national news were important to her. Being a poll worker for over 40 years at the 4th Precinct on Lagrange St. in Toledo gave her a chance to help her local community. Girl Scouts were her interest that spanned more than 20 years. She served as an adult leader from Brownies to Seniors. Also, Senior Advisor, Service Unit Director, Writer of Scout news and delegate to the National Meeting in 1969. Her greatest honor was receiving the Thanks Badge in 1972 for outstanding leadership and service. She did all of this while raising 8 children too.

  Florence was a 1939 graduate of Central Catholic High School and active with their reunions. She was a parishioner of the former St. Hedwig Catholic Church for many years and recently

Regina Coeli Catholic Church. Her devotion to the Catholic Church was evident in all she did.

Angels and crosses were always proudly displayed throughout her rooms everywhere.

  Florence was preceded in death by her loving husband, John and son Jack.

She is survived by sister, Margaret Welcheck; sons, Robert (Gaytha) and Donald (Paula); and daughters, Marilyn (Bruce Steidel), Shirley, Florence (Robert Warnke), Elaine (Scott Henderson), and Theresa (Gary Lyp).

  Family and friends may call on Sunday, February 9 from 3-8 p.m. at Sujkowski Funeral Home Northpointe, 114 E.
