Elizabeth Fales (nee Ely), age 87, of Middlefield, passed away peacefully Monday afternoon, March 29, 2021, at University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center.
She was born in Middlefield on Nov. 25, 1933, to the late Lysle and Helen (nee Steele) Ely.
Elizabeth is once again reunited with her loving husband of 66 years, Ronald Fales, who died Jan. 12, 2019.
She enjoyed being an Avon sales rep for more than 20 years, before retiring.
In 2005, Elizabeth was browsing through a knitting catalogue and came across the prayer shawl ministry that inspired her to become a member and start making prayer shawls. Since then, Elizabeth has made more than 3,000 prayer shawls that have been distributed to all 50 U.S. states and many countries around the world.
Elizabeth will be greatly missed by her children Ron (Tammy) Fales, Helene (Lou) Laird, Angela (Robert) Moran, Cyndi Yoxall, Dee Ann (Ed) Tobin, Samantha Fales and Holli (Jack) Jackson; 15 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; sister, Grace Ely; and many friends.
Elizabeth is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Ronald; daughter Hilda Fales; grandsons Aaron and Jason; and brothers, Lysle Ely and Robert Ely.
A private burial will be held at a later date.
