(Christopher Dendler) Wood of Mogadore, Ohio; 6 grandchildren, Erica Best of Dennison, Jacquelyn and Kelsey Mosher of Canton, Kendall and Kyler Wood of Mogadore, and Catherine “Katie” Carlisle of Wainwright; 8 great-grandchildren; a sister, Betty J. Telle of Shelby, Ohio; and a sister-in-law, Eunice Smith of Tuscarawas.
