Beverly Ransom-Oswalt

October 11, 1936 ‒ January 23, 2020

Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD: Beverly Ransom-Oswalt entered her eternal home on Thursday, January 23, 2020 after a very long and brave battle with Parkison’s  Disease since her diagnosis in 1991.

She was born October 11, 1936, to Carl and Mary Daugherty.

Beverly was a graduate of  Madison High School Class of 1954 and a graduate of Mansfield Beauty College.

She was a self-employed beautician for over   40  years (Tiny Beauty Shop and Bev’s Beauty Bar), where she enjoyed the friendship of many faithful customers, before retiring 13 years ago.

Beverly was a member of the First                     Alliance  Christian and   Missionary  Church, where she sang in the choir for many years. The past several years she had attended Berean Baptist Church.

She was past president of the North Central Ohio    Chapter of the Parkison’s    Support Group and was a  former volunteer for the Richland Pregnancy  Center.

She enjoyed knitting, sewing, playing piano,  and traveling when she was able to do so.

She lived with her husband, Dale Oswalt, at the Apostolic Christian Home for twelve years where she enjoyed working on jigsaw puzzles, playing dominos and cards with friends and attending programs sponsored by the home.    When she felt she needed more care than her current living environment provided she made her new home at Wedgewood Manor in Mansfield.

She is survived by her husband Dale Oswalt of 37years. Four daughters and their spouses, Christine Parker-See (Ron), Terri (Shawn) DeWitt, Mary (Ken) Zeigler, Trudy (Scott) McKnight of Fredericktown. Four step-children and their spouses,  Alan (Claudia) Oswalt, Jill (Dick) Kaber, Brian (Tina) Oswalt, and Kevin Oswalt.  Twelve grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren, brother-in-law Robert Neutzling, several cousins and four nieces and two nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her sisters, Carol Neutzling and Joyce Olinger.

Calling hours will be held Sunday, January 26, 2020  from 1-3pm in the Marion Avenue Snyder Funeral Home where funeral services will be Monday at 11 am.  Burial will follow in Mansfield Cemetery.

In Lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations to the Parkinson’s Foundation or OhioHealth Hospice be made through the funeral home.
