Nancy Schmittle Obituary

Nancy Joanne Schmittle (nee: Araca), 81 years of age, and a resident of Amherst, was called home to heaven January 22, 2024, at Mercy Regional Medical Center in Lorain, following a full and meaningful life.

She was born March 21, 1942, in Cleveland, Ohio. Nancy was raised in Elyria, graduating from Elyria Catholic High School.  She had made her home in Amherst for the last seventeen years.

Nancy was employed as a chef at Stanadyne/Moen Company in Elyria for twenty-five years before retiring. She was previously employed at Sweden House in Elyria.  Nancy's love of hospitality extended well beyond her cooking skills.  She loved caring for all creatures both great and small with feeders and allowances for habitat.  Nancy enjoyed spending her days outdoors, gardening and enjoying nature.  Above all else Nancy enjoyed being with her grandchildren.

Survivors include her children, Joseph (Paula) Schmittle Jr. of Houston, TX, Joanne (Dallas) Lilly of Gas City, IN, Michael Schmittle (Nancy Guastella) of Vermilion, Steven (Erica) Schmittle of Amherst and Nicholas Schmittle of Ft. Wayne, IN; sixteen grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband of nearly twenty-six years, Joseph F. “Joe” Schmittle Sr., on January 11, 2013; her son, David Schmittle in 1991; her brother, Sam Araca; and her father, Nick Araca; her mother Concetta Araca-Wellborn (nee:Foglyano), and her step father Arthur Wellborn.
