Grace T. Klein Obituary – The Beaver County Times

Grace T. Klein of Randolph, Ohio, died Sept. 18 at Altercare in Hartville. She was 92 years old.

Grace was born on July 7, 1930 to William and Mabel Ratigan of Freedom, Pennsylvania. After graduating from Freedom High School in 1948, she continued her nursing education at Providence Hospital and later used those skills while volunteering her time to care for members of the community. She married John J. Jones of Evans City, Pennsylvania, in 1951 and they had five children. After John’s death, Grace married George F. Klein of Randolph, Ohio in 1962, adding two more children to the family. Grace was a kind and patient mother whose children have fond memories of hot tea before school and an encouraging note in their lunch box each day. She loved being a mother and delighted to hold and play with each new grandchild. She also enjoyed traveling with George to visit family members, swim in the ocean, and go out to eat on Sundays. Always proud of her Irish heritage and Pennsylvanian roots, she enjoyed watching Gene Kelly dance and listen to “Moon River.” Grace was a faithful member of St. Joseph’s Church in Randolph. She participated in prayer groups for many years and enjoyed singing hymns and praying the rosary. In the weeks leading up to her death, Grace was surrounded by those who loved her, including George, her husband of sixty years, and all of her children. Much loved by those who knew her, she was blessed with visits and calls from her grandchildren from all over and her nieces from Pennsylvania.

Grace was predeceased by her parents, her first husband John Jones and her siblings: Bill, Birdie, Mike, Kitty and Marge. She is survived by her loving husband, George, and her children, Matthew (Paula) Jones of Travelers Rest, SC, Kathleen Jones of Hartville, OH, Joy (Kenny) Gerhartinger of Rootstown, OH, Michael Jones of North Canton, OH , Mary (Sean) Kelly of New Wilmington, PA, Patricia (John) Crum of Wooster, OH, Joan (Tom) Godfrey of Lexington, VA, and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
