It has been many years since I attended St Lukes but I remember Ava. What a kind and friendly woman she was. My way to remember friends and family is to collect recipes, I think of her every time I make her Boston Brown Bread recipe. Please accept my condolences on your loss. Susan Vokoun

I met Mrs. Peck through my partner, Louise. It hardly seems possible, but I have known her for the past 20 years. I truly enjoyed her. She was wise and smart and had a great sense of humor. She made us lunch whenever we visited and we use her pancake and brown bread recipes at home. Mrs. Peck was a great conversationalist. She was curious and opinionated and fun. I will miss her. I want to extend my deepest sympathy to her family and friends.

Dave, Mike and Sally and family-I am so sorry to hear of Ava's passing. I know how much you'll miss her. She was a wonderful person. I'll never forget her spunk and energy. She accompanied Diane and Nora on a visit to Chicago when I lived there. She was 80+ and kept up with us on a long walk through town. I'm really glad I knew Ava.Warmest regards,Mary Burkholder

I have known Mrs. Peck since the summer of 1972, when I turned 12. She told me 12 would be a wonderful age, and she was right. She was a friend of my mother's, but she quickly became a friend of mine. I called her my "other mother." We shared a birthday (August 5) and felt an immediate kinship. She took me canoeing - I think that is why I am most at home now when I am in my kayak on a quiet lake. I visited her in Chardon last year over Memorial Day weekend. It was the summer I would turn 50. We sat on her back porch and she told me that the 50s were the best age ever. Again, so far, she has proven to be right. When I called to tell her of my mother's death in 2009, she said: "At our age, this is not bad news." Still, I will miss her. As will my partner, and our daughter, who also came to love her. Please accept our condolences. She was a beautiful light in the world.
