ObituariesLetter to the Editor
It is hard to believe that it has been over a month sincemy mother, Mary Alice Streeter, passed away. She, like my father, Clarence Streeter, loved this town of Port Clinton.They were both raised here as children and felt this was awonderful town in which to live and raise a family. Dadeven said to me one time while we were walking near thelake, “I think Port Clinton is God’s country, why wouldanyone want to live anywhere else?” To which I respond-ed, “I agree with you, Dad.”Port Clinton is a wonderful area, not just because of thespectacular view of Lake Erie, and not just because of thebeautiful seasons we have, its crowning glory is the peoplewho live here! Mom’s brothers and their wives and dad’ssister all raised their families here as well, so cousins wereplentiful, which made Port Clinton the family place tobe. Growing up here we felt safe, got a good educationand made oh so many wonderful and fun memories. Ourneighborhood was special, too. Keith & Marge Montgom-ery and Earl and Patsy Warnke were our other parentswho kept me in line as much as my own parents did. Butmore, they, and their children, were family, too.But this past January proved that many in Port Clintonare family to Greg and me as well. We received so many wonderful cards offering condolences, prayers, and Mass-es for mom. So many memorials to Immaculate Concep-tion, American Red Cross and to Stein Hospice, as wellas other non-prot organizations, like the Ottawa County Museum, etc. We received many Facebook messages, e-mails and texts telling us that people are thinking of us,praying for us. For a month now, wherever I go peoplecome up to me and tell me how sorry they are that mom isgone, that THEY MISS HER SO MUCH, that mom alwaysput a smile on their face when they would depart. Peoplewould stop their conversations and say, “I have to giveCarol a hug” as I was coming toward them. The hugs andthe smiles that I get in the grocery store, at church, in thestreet….. maybe there are other places in Ohio, or even inthe United States, like this, but I am glad I am here, withall of you. I feel I am blessed, and I KNOW I am blessed,to have so many to comfort me, as I pray I am comforting you as well in your loss of a friend, a mentor, a role model,a buddy, a sister in Christ.Mom left a wonderful legacy in Port Clinton, as did my dad. They gave to others and in return they received somuch goodness and love. Many of the “girls” at Curvessaid mom inspired them as well as made them laugh whileworking out, now it is YOUR responsibility to keep thesmiles and laughter going. You keep encouraging eachother so you can “look good in the box”!
(Mom’s senseof humor - the daughter of an undertaker!)Even after all these words, I still don’t know how to say,‘THANK YOU’ for all you have done for mom and forGreg and me. I truly am so appreciative of all the TLC thispast month. Sometimes it seems she is not even gone be-cause I see her reected in all of you.
I will say it again,I feel so blessed to be living in Port Clinton with so many wonderful people.
God Bless. Love you,Carol & Greg Fox
