NEW LYME — Clara Marie Mezinger, age 49, died at her home peacefully on Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013, with her husband and son by her side.

Clara was the daughter of Frank and Anita Delzotti, born March 2, 1964, in Euclid, Ohio. Clara was married to John W. Mezinger on Oct. 6, 1990.

Clara graduated from Kent State University in 2008 with a degree in childhood education. Clara was affectionately known as “Mrs. M” by her students at Redstone School House in Rock Creek.

Clara’s favorite quote and one that she lived by each day is “One Hundred years from now it will not matter what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had, nor what my clothes were like, but the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child.”

Clara is survived by her husband, John; son, Nickalas Allen; step-sons, John Christopher and Chadd Robert; her parents, Frank and Anita; a sister, Susan Stiverson; and a brother, Joseph Delzotti.

A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, Dec. 23rd, at 6 p.m., at PAINE FUNERAL HOME, INC., 140 E. Main St., Orwell, Ohio.
