October 26, 1938 - November 13, 2021
Angeline R. Spires, 83, passed away unexpectedly at her home on November 13, 2021. She was born on October 26, 1938 in Londonderry, OH to Ezra S. and Mary E. (Sollars) Walker. Angeline was an accomplished pianist. While in high school, she had a 30-minute time slot at the local radio station in Chillicothe, where she played on Sunday afternoons. She also gave lessons and played for high school functions, her local church, weddings, and nursing homes, as well as for her and her family's enjoyment throughout her life. Angeline graduated with honors as the 1956 valedictorian from Southeastern High School in Richmond Dale, Ohio. After raising four daughters, she continued her education and earned her bachelor's degree in business administration from the Ohio State University. Angeline worked in the purchasing department of Wear-Ever in Chillicothe, first as a secretary and then as a purchasing agent. She later relocated to the Columbus area, where she worked in purchasing for Turco-Purex and then for Honda, until she retired. Angeline had many interests: painting, dancing, decorating, genealogy, bridge, sewing, and reading. She was always young at heart and loved spending time with friends and family. She couldn't wait to check Facebook every day to get updates on her newest great-grandbabies. Angeline is preceded in death by her parents; brother-in-law Robert Keppler; and daughter Catherine Elizabeth (Spires) Webster. She was loved and will be greatly missed by her daughters Lynne McGraw (Fred), JoAnne Weisser (Mark), and Kristen Dodd (Doug); her grandchildren Ashley Gould, Michael Gould, Andrew Weisser, AJ Weisser, Logan Dodd (Leslie), and Evan Dodd (Deidre); great-grandchildren Toby Rawlins, Christian Dodd, Charlotte Dodd, and Weston Dodd; her sister Becky Keppler of Berea, KY; nephew Shane Lurty; and great-nieces Sierra and Savannah Lurty. Visitation will take place at SCHOEDINGER NORTHEAST, 1051 East Johnstown Road in Gahanna, OH, on Thursday, November 18 from 4pm-7pm. Angeline's family will also welcome guests at Ware Funeral Home, 121 West 2nd Street in Chillicothe, OH on Friday, November 19, from 5pm-8pm. Her Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Mary's Church in Chillicothe on Saturday, November 20, beginning at 11am. Interment at St. Margaret Cemetery will follow.
