Marie I. Chasser 1946-2019

NEWTON FALLS — Marie Irene Chasser, 73, passed away at 1:30 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 1, 2019, at St. Joseph Warren Hospital, following a brief illness.

Marie was born Sept. 11, 1946, in Warren, the daughter of the late Paul M. and Elizabeth Hildack Katona.

She attended Warren City Schools. Mrs. Chasser was a loving wife, mother and homemaker.

Marie loved the outdoors, from camping and fishing with her family to working in her flower beds. She enjoyed watching and feeding the birds — she could name every type of bird that visited her yard and made sure her daughters also could.

She was a member of the Newton Falls VFW Post 3332 and loved playing bingo with her friends.

She is survived by three daughters, Tracey (Bill) Welling of Lakeland, Fla., Barbara (Jeff) Wickline of Lordstown and Deneen Price of Cortland; a sister, Betty (Walter) Lucas of Chagrin Falls; a brother, Paul M. (Louise) Katona of Southington; nine grandchildren, Andrew, David, Kayla, Heather (Todd), Kelsey, Victoria, James, Michael (Dezerae) and Devan; and seven great-grandchildren.

Her husband, Kenneth R. Chasser, whom she married April 16, 1977, passed away Sept. 28, 2000.

In addition to her parents and her husband, Marie was preceded in death by a brother, William Katona, and a son-in-law, James Price Jr.

A funeral service will be 11 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 5, 2019, at Wm Nicholas Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 614 Warren Ave. Niles, OH 44446, with the Rev. Mary Prior, pastor of Fowler United Methodist Church, officiating.
