Sellers; children Christy (Jason Harston), Richard (Lisa Miller); grandchildren Page (Matthew Haskell), Rachel (Jason Geminert), and Alexander; brother Roger Page (Karen).

Nancy grew up in Rocky River and earned a Bachelor of Education from Kent State University, where she met and married her beloved husband.  When Martin began active-duty service in the U.S. Army they were stationed together in Bremerhaven, Germany where they took advantage of many opportunities to travel throughout Europe.  Nancy was a faithful and supportive wife to Martin when he served an overseas tour of duty in Vietnam, and so grateful when they were finally reunited.

She was a passionate educator and beloved by her many sixth-grade students at St. Anthony of Padua School; her particular interest in Roman, Greek, and Egyptian history was evident in her memorable lessons, and creative projects.  An avid and skilled bridge player, Nancy was a sought-after partner and loved hosting her bridge group.  She was known for her bright wit, beautiful smile, joyful laugh, and her legendary baking skills; her friends and family were grateful recipients of her famous cheesecake and brownies.  As a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for over four decades, she served as a dedicated Sunday School and Primary teacher for many of those years.

A memorial service and celebration of her life will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 25000 Westwood Rd, Westlake, on Monday, November 29, 2021, from 7:00-8:00 p.m., with refreshments to follow.  Livestream of the memorial service will be available via Zoom.

Sutter, James

James “Jim” Sutter, beloved husband, father and grandfather, passed away from this world and entered into eternal peace with his Lord and Savior on November 4, 2021.

Jim was born on May 27, 1945 in Cleveland and resided in Brunswick.  He was a graduate of the General Motors Institute, earning degrees in both mechanical and electrical engineering.  He retired from GM after a highly successful 39-year career. He was also a very proud veteran, serving in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War.

Jim was a golf and car enthusiast, enjoyed watching the Browns and spending time in his workshop. He loved to travel and see the world, always getting the best deals and taking countless pictures. Most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family and at his church, St. Ambrose Parish.

Jim is remembered by his family and friends for his devotion, wisdom and generosity.  He loved projects of all kinds, and was extremely generous in sharing his time and talents.  When something wasn’t working and needed to be fixed, everyone knew they could ask Jim/Dad/Grandpa and he would know how to fix it. He loved to help people, especially the people he loved.

Jim is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Norma (nee Bertone), who he continued to date by going out to dinners, movies, and events to the end, his daughters Amanda (Eric) Osborn and Marissa (Tim) Clausing, and his grandchildren Brayden, Alysia, Adrielle and soon to be born Timothy James. He will be missed greatly and always remembered fondly in their hearts, and the hearts of so many others.

The family will receive friends at St. Ambrose Parish on Wednesday, December 1 from 10:00 am – 11:00, with a Mass at 11:00, and a luncheon to follow.

Frame, Athel V.

Athel V. Frame, 89, passed away Friday, March 27, 2020, at Brookdale Camelot, Medina, OH.  Born July 19, 1930 to the late Troy and Rosa Workman.

Athel was a tremendously strong woman who married young and earned the honor of becoming mother to eight, grandmother to seventeen, great-grandmother and great-great grandmother to many.  Tenacious by nature, she set standards and goals and did whatever it took to attain those goals. The lyrics to “My Way” could have been her anthem:  …”Yes, there were times, I’m sure you know, When I bit off more than I could chew, But through it all when there was doubt, I ate it up and spit it out, I faced it all and stood up tall, AND DID IT MY WAY”.

In the early 1960’s, while raising a large family, she earned her Welding Certification from The University of Akron and began a 30-year welding career.  Her nickname “Short Arc Lady” resulted from the respect of her peers; she did the Wendy the Welder Club proud.  She welded hospital equipment for both Invacare and Hausted, retiring in 1992.  She was a welder by day but remained a diva by night – dressed to the nines, polished nails and kicking it in 3-inch-high heels.

She belonged to the Grand Order of the Eastern Stars, serving in all capacities including Worthy Grand Matron.   Athel was an avid outdoor woman who enjoyed working in her flower beds, her yard and her garden.  She enjoyed fellowship with friends at Wellington Freewill Baptist Church.  In more recent years, she enjoyed spending time and traveling with her long-time life companion, Harry Bickerton.  She will be missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by her children, Lois (Ben) Bowers, Luray VA, Vic (Kay) Frame, Centreville VA, Ruth Frame, Las Vegas, Bethel Kurp, Mead WA and Sandy (Lenny) Neuman, Medina OH; three sisters, Viola Elkins, Josephine Huffman and Betty Fredersdorff.  She was preceded in death by her husband, Norris Frame, son Delmas Frame, daughter Halene Bowers Napier, infant daughter Jacqueline, grandsons David Frame and Matthew Frame; and companion Harry Bickerton.

Family graveside services to honor and celebrate a life well-lived will be held at a later date once we are free to assemble after the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The family wishes to thank Brookdale Camelot staff and Brookdale Hospice for the loving kind care they provided, and to Bollinger Funeral Services for assisting with final arrangements in this trying time.

Memorial contributions to honor Athel may be made to Feeding Medina County, 650 W. Smith Rd., C-8, Medina, OH 44256  (www.feedingmedinacounty.org).
