Rose Marie Klacik 1929-2019
AUSTINTOWN — Rose Marie Klacik, 91, passed away Thursday morning at her residence.
Rose Marie was born Oct. 20, 1929, the daughter of Stephen and Justine Leskovar Jasecko.
Rose Marie was a member of St. Joseph Church.
She married John Joseph Klacik Jr. Oct. 14, 1950, and was a homemaker and mother of five children.
Upon his retirement, she and John moved to Lakeland, Fla.
Although in her 70s, she was excited to learn to drive. She would travel around their development in her golf cart visiting friends and going to the clubhouse and pool.
In 2007, they moved back to Ohio to be close to family and friends and they rejoined St. Joseph Church. Rose Marie loved working jigsaw puzzles, embroidery and painting the walls of her home. She was one of few women who would iron bed sheets and paint walls more often than others do spring cleaning.
She enjoyed traveling with her husband, brother, sisters and spouses, going on cruises, to casinos, playing bingo and listening to country music.
Her favorite past time was watching the Cleveland Indians — win or lose.
Rose is survived by her children, Velma Glista, John “Ed” (Maria) Klacik, Rachelle (Gary) Sinn, Richard (Terri) Klacik and Cheryl (David) Bernard; 16 grandchildren; 27 great-grandchildren (with another due January 2020); sisters Carmelita Tomich and Helen Martini; sister-in-law Kathy Jasecko; and many nieces and nephews, especially Teann.
Rose was preceded in death by her parents; husband John, who passed Oct. 7, 2018; in-laws Paul and Donna Klacik and Stephen and Rose Ann Jasecko, Ben Martini, and Victor Tomich; son-in-law Leonard Glista; and grandson, John Klacik IV.
A Mass of Christian burial will be held 11 a.m. Tuesday at St. Joseph Catholic Church. Family and friends may call 9 to 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at Lane Funeral Homes, Austintown Chapel.
The family would like to give a very special thank you to the Hospice staff that cared for Rose Marie, especially RN Renee and Diane.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hospice of the Valley, 5190 Market St. Youngstown, OH 44512 or the Rescue Mission of Mahoning Valley.
