Marian E. Zalar, Age 88, a lifelong resident of the Huntsburg Twp. area, died on Sunday, December 10, 2017, at her home in Huntsburg Twp., surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Painesville, OH, on April 21, 1929, to Joseph and Elizabeth (Nee: Mausser) Janek, and graduated from Chardon High School, Class of 1947.
Marian married Anthony W. Zalar in the Church of St. Mary, Chardon, on Nov. 24, 1951. She was a lifelong member of the Church of St. Mary and was considered a “super mom” by her family. She had worked for the Chardon Rubber Company, Geauga Industries and finally as a guide on the bus tours for Anderson Tours. Her hobbies and enjoyments include volunteering for Geauga Hospital; cooking and baking (especially her bacon bread); sewing; floral and vegetable gardening, always having plenty to can; and traveling, especially to Alaska, Canada, Hawaii, the Caribbean, and to Portugal. She was the “Rock” to many in her family and will most definitely be deeply missed, but never forgotten for her great love of God.
