Olive Morehart

TOLEDO — Olive Morehart, age 89, passed away on Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2012, in Toledo, Ohio. She joins her husband Joe, daughter Jeanine, her parents George and Annabelle Young, brother George and sisters Elaine and Opal.

She is survived by her son, Scott (Bobbi) Wheelock; grandson, Sean; granddaughters, Kathy (Emil) Polito and Becky (Steven) Spraker; sisters-in-law, Helen, Jean and Norma; brother-in-law, Russell; special friends, Lillian, Bob, Pat and Marge; and many great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Olive and her twin sister Opal came into this world on Dec. 30, 1922. A product of the Great Depression, she learned at a young age how to be happy with what she had, a trait that made her enjoyable to be around throughout her life.

After graduation from high school, she went on to become a registered nurse through the School of Nursing at Youngstown Memorial Hospital. She practiced nursing for 30 years, eventually retiring from Ashtabula General Hospital. She was a faithful member of the First Christian Church in Ashtabula until it closed.

She loved life. She especially enjoyed eating out with her friends and cheering on the Cleveland Browns and Indians. An avid coin collector, she always checked any quarters she received in change to see if there were any new ones she could add to her collection.

Throughout her life, she was loved by everyone with whom she met. Many who knew her commented on her perpetual good spirits, kindness and strength. Never putting herself first, Olive was always thinking about what she could do to help those around her.

Olive touched many lives and will be missed by all who knew her.

There will be no visiting hours. A private burial ceremony will be held at the cemetery in Youngstown.
