August 25, 1951 ‒ January 13, 2016
MANSFIELD: Deborah Dials, age 64, passed away Wednesday, January 13, 2016 in Ohio State University Hospital surrounded by family.
She was born August 25, 1951 to parents E. William & Alice (Reece) Barlow and graduated from Madison High School. On October 10, 1980 she married Howard A. Dials.
She was an avid reader and a dog lover. Deb enjoyed spending time up at the lake and was a member of the Zeller’s Beach Club. She and Howard spent many weekends and most of the summer at their lake house and she loved spending time on the water, visiting lighthouses, and enjoyed it even more when shared with friends and family. Above all, Deb cherished spending time with her grandchildren. Her friends and family will miss her witty sense of humor.
She is survived by her loving husband of 35 years, Howard Dials of Mansfield; a son and daughter-in-law Pete & Melissa Dials of Medina; two step-sons Jason & Michelle Dials of Lexington, and Ryan & Joy Dials of Mansfield; five grandchildren Malia, Alexis, Jack, Trevor, and Megan Dials; and a brother Reece Barlow of Shelby.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
A Celebration of Life for Deb will be held 2-5 p.m. Sunday, January 17, 2016 in Snyder Funeral Home (2553 Lexington Ave in Mansfield) during which Celebrant Dave Roberts will facilitate an informal sharing time.
