SALEM, Ohio – Patricia Lee (Roller) Mangus, 37096 Butcher Road, Salem, Ohio, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. from her home.
She was born on December 2, 1928, near Greenford, Ohio, the daughter of the late Harry Lee and Esther (Jensen) Roller.
She was a 1946 graduate of Greenford High School and became a member of the Emmanuel Lutheran Church of Salem, Ohio in 1957. She spent her early church years as a member of Locust Grove Baptist Church.
Patricia attended Youngstown College of Business for one year.
She retired from the Ohio Bureau of Employment Services on June 30, 1987, after nearly 25 years of service.
She will be deeply missed by her daughters, Debra Suzanne (Charles) Jackson and Cynthia Lee (Gerald) Smith, both of Salem; grandchildren, Scott (Kristie) Jackson, Brian Smith, Rebecca (Jason) Rynes and Amy (Jason) Mango; great-grandchildren, Lana Jackson, Sophia and Kaitlyn Rynes, Grace and Michael Mango and Dagny and Fletcher Smith; a brother, Robert Roller of San Jose, California, her dear friend, George Sigle of Greenford and many nieces, nephews and friends.
Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Frank J. Mangus, Jr., on November 1, 2001, a special and good man, whom she married on December 4, 1948.
Patricia loved the farm where she had spent most of her life, being outside working in the yard, caring for flowers and all growing things. One of her favorite pastimes was mowing her yard. Her other hobbies were music and reading but most dear to her heart were spending time with her family and her nursing home and prayer ministries. She truly touched all with the love of Christ and never missed an opportunity to share the gospel.
A celebration of life service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 25, 2017 at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church with visitation one hour prior to the service with Pastor Alan Smearsoll officiating.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Emmanuel Lutheran Church at 291 S. Broadway, Salem, OH 44460 or to the Hospice of the Valley (Mahoning County), 5190 Market St., Youngstown, OH 44512.
