MILLERSBURG -- Shirley Marie (Martin) Klotz, 81, of Millersburg went home to be with the Lord unexpectedly on Friday, March 24, 2017, at Cleveland Clinic Akron General Hospital, surrounded by her family.
Shirley touched many of your lives, in one way or another. So it is our hope that you will understand there will be no calling hours. A service for family and friends was 1 p.m. on Monday, March 27, 2017, at the Millersburg Christian Church in Millersburg, with Pastor Wes McElravy officiating.
Burial was in Nashville Cemetery in Nashville. Those wishing to share a memory or make online condolences may do so by visiting www.alexanderfhinc.com.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be made to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, American Cancer Society, American Diabetes Association or the charity of the donor's choice.
Shirley was born July 7, 1935, near Nashville and was the daughter of Guy and Edna B. Martin. On June 18, 1955, she married Norman Cline Klotz, and he preceded her in death on March 17, 2005.
Shirley started at CSB Inc. in 1953 and devoted her life to the job she loved so much for 47 years. She considered the bank employees her family. She helped too many people and families to count and enjoyed every moment of it.
She was a devoted Christian and member of Millersburg Christian Church since 1955. After retirement, she enjoyed baking for the school events and helping as an aide for Millersburg Elementary.
She is survived by her daughter, Ann Klotz of Millersburg; precious grandson, Cameron Klotz of Millersburg; siblings, Carol Martin, William E. (Marjorie) Martin, Jim (Marcia) Martin, and Garnet Martin Deitrich; and sisters-in-law, Ruby Martin and Beverly Martin.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Norman; siblings, Robert Martin, Welker "Guy" (Ruth) Martin, Vernon Martin, Harold (Joanne) Martin, Verna (Bob) Watts, Don (Nellie) Martin and Fern Pyers; a brother-in-law, Albert (Sandy) Klotz; and her mother-in-law, Nettie Kline Klotz.
The family would especially like to thank Dr. Yasser Omran for his tender loving care all these years, keeping her here with us longer than we had hoped.
