SHARON TWP.---Dianne Marie Ranftl (Pavey), 67, was gifted to the world in Sault Ste. Marie, MI and her Soul returned to the Lord on May 7, 2018.
She was fearless, loving, & talented. She could put her mind to anything & do it. She loved to sew, crochet, spin wool, weave & knit. She led Prince of Peace’s Prayer Shawl Ministry.
She loved chai tea, kalua & cream, Neil Diamond, flower gardening & raised Chesapeake’s. She converted to Catholicism 50 years ago & prayed the rosary daily.
She was an entrepreneur & owned her own business, ‘Paws ‘N’ Tails’. She managed the Brunswick Yum Yum Tree for many years. She retired from her job as Admin Asst to Medina Commissioners Office & dedicated her life full time to her family.
She tended to her late mother-in-law Julia Ranftl and brother-in-law Russel Ranftl throughout their illnesses.
Her family meant everything to her. She leaves behind her Beloved husband of 50 years William Ranftl, her precious daughter Patricia Ranftl & her pride and joy, granddaughter Violet. Her favorite job was being grandma.
She was the rock of her family & gave 110% of herself. She was an example of fortitude, selflessness & Christian love.
Though she is gone from this world, her example shines within all of those she touched.
