Mildred I. Mansueti
April 22, 1923 ‒ October 09, 2005
CRESTLINE: Mildred I. Mansueti, 82, of North Henry Street, Crestline, died Sunday afternoon October 9, 2005 in Rosewood Manor, Galion, following a short illness.
She was born April 22, 1923 in Lexington to Walter and Carrie (Thomas) Fry, and was graduated from Bellville High School in 1941.
Mildred earned her Bachelors Degree in Education from Ashland University, and taught at Catholic schools in Cleveland and Shelby before settling in at St. Joseph’s School in Galion. She spent all but one of her years teaching fourth-grade, and retired in 1988 from St. Joseph’s following 23 years of service.
A voracious reader, she preferred mysteries and contemporary novels. Mildred enjoyed fishing with her husband, and traveling with her family ~ favoring trips to Oregon, Seattle, San Francisco, North Carolina, and, oh, Las Vegas! When a day trip was called for, Mildred would head to the glass factories, or spend the day with her great grandchildren.
She is survived by her husband Samuel A. Mansueti, whom she married September 26, 1943; her daughter and son-in-law Karen and Brad Cowan of Northville, Michigan. Also surviving are grandchildren Eric and Audrey Cowan of Powell and Kevin and Amy Cowan of Dublin; great grandchildren Hayley, Hannah, Benjamin and Kaitlin. Also surviving are brothers, sisters and their spouses Marguerite Chamberlin of Bellville, Marcile and Richard Rita of Mansfield, Eugene and Mildred Fry of Bellville, Charles and Sherry Fry of Wauseon, Valera and Frank Lake of Noti, Oregon; sisters-in-law Ella Jane Fry of Bellville and Beulah Fry of Mansfield.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by three brothers Robert Fry, Dale Fry and Leo Fry.
The family will receive friends this evening, Tuesday, October 11, 2005 from 5-8 pm in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home, and Wednesday from 10 am until time for the 11 am funeral service in the funeral home. Burial will follow in Bellville Cemetery.
