Dorothy V. Harvey 1924-2013

WARREN – Dorothy Vaselych Harvey, 88, passed into eternal life on Sunday, June 16, 2013, at Hospice House of Poland surrounded by her loving family.

Her family would like to say that Dorothy was a devout Christian who served the Lord, her family and Body of Christ faithfully all her life. She left us Sunday morning to attend the big church in the sky with the Heavenly Father on Father’s Day to receive her gift of eternal life, which was her hope and prayer.

On Sept. 13, 1924, in Warren, John and Elizabeth Lengyel Vaselych were blessed with the birth of their daughter, Dorothy.

Dorothy was married to Dennis “Moe” Harvey for more than 36 years before he passed away on Nov. 26, 1982.

She had lived in the Warren area for most her life, working as a U.S. Postal Service secretary to the postmaster for 25 years.

Dorothy served in the U.S. Navy (Wave) during World War II from Oct. 19, 1944, until June 4, 1946. She was involved in Kairos, a prison ministry.

Dorothy enjoyed reading her Bible, and spending time with her family and friends.

Memories of Dorothy will be carried on by her loving family, her son, Johnathon “Johnny” C. Harvey III of Mansfield; her daughter, Denice J. Cupples of Warren; her grandchildren, Dawn and David Hood of Newton Falls, Rodd and Lori Meyer of Southington, Todd and Gina Meyer of Powell, James Meyer and Vickie Brocious of Champion, Krystan Zandarski of Boardman, Megan and Randall Lucariello of Niles and Johnda Harvey of Warren, and 22 great-grandchildren.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her parents, John and Elizabeth Vaselych; her loving husband, Dennis “Moe” Harvey; her daughter, Deborah D. Zandarski; her grandson, Joel Mark Meyer; her granddaughter, Terri Ann Wikoff; and her sister, Natalie Vaselych.

The family asks that all contributions go in the form of donations to Howland Glen Baptist Church, 1348 Niles Cortland Road, Warren, OH 44484.
