It is with joyful sadness we announce our mother, grandmother and great grandmother, E. Lyvonne Getz, died on February 6, 2020. We are thankful to God that it was a peaceful and merciful death without pain or suffering.

Lyvonne was born in Akron and lived over 67 years in her house in Tallmadge. She was retired from the Tallmadge Post Office, where she worked for over 20 years.  Lyvonne had been a member of the First Congregational Church of Tallmadge, and was a 70 year member of the Eastern Star, Billow Chapter. She enjoyed working at the voting polls, and always had yarn and a crochet hook handy.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Edward; parents, William and Grace Memmer; grandson, Andrew Amicarelli; son-in-law, Tom Wilkens.

Lyvonne is survived by her daughters, Carolyn Wilkens of Brimfield, Dianna (Ron) Phillips of Mogadore, Bonita (Ken) Powers of Michigan; son, Alfred (Sue) Getz of Palmyra; 11 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.
