Arlene May Kupczak, 87, died Nov. 12, 2012 in Akron after health complications.
Born Oct. 10, 1925 in Hudson, she was the daughter of Frank and Dellse Lillich. Mrs. Kupczak had been a farmer and a retiree of Kroger grocery stores while residing in Streetsboro all her years.
In 1961, she dedicated her life to Jehovah God as one of his witnesses because she learned Him to be a loving, generous, just and merciful Father. She firmly believed and taught others that soon there will be an end to all sickness, suffering and death as promised at Revelation 21:3:4.
This hope gave her confidence in God's Kingdom when persons like her sleeping in death will be resurrected back to life and reunited with her loved ones on an earth restored to paradise.
Survivors include her daughters, Donna Bejger (Charles) of Peninsula and Betty Wandling (Dennis) of Uniontown; two grandchildren, Lisa Provateare (Tom) and Michael Wandling (Rupali); five great-grandchildren, Jordyn, Ethan and Tommy Provateare and Michael and Casey Wandling; brother Wayne Lillich (Jean); and sister Marie Dunlap.
A memorial service took place Dec. 9 at Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Streetsboro. A private burial followed at Bedford Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Streetsboro Fire Department or Akron City Hospital.
