Peg A Mendiola

Margaret "Peg" A. Mendiola, 73, passed away December 1, 2020, due to complications from Covid-19. 

She was born in Steubenville, Ohio, on June 5, 1947, and later moved to Akron with her mother. 

Peg was employed as a caring and compassionate nurse's aide for many years.  She was a devoted fan of the Massillon Tigers and enjoyed spending many Friday nights at the football games. She was also an avid bingo player and a faithful member of St. Mary's of Massillon. 

She was a loving, dedicated and devoted mother and transitioned her job from nurse’s aide to holding a variety of jobs at her children’s schools.

Margaret was preceded in death by her parents Robert and Bertha Nevling. She is survived by her son, John Mendiola; daughters, Melissa Mendiola (Rossetti), Mandie (Greg) Bilowsky; sister, Kim (Mike) Zita; grandchildren, Sara and Greg, Jr.; nephew, David (Jen) Zita, niece, Megan Zita; great-nieces, Mia and Lexi; and other loving family members and friends.

The family would like to thank the staff at Pleasant View Health Care Center for the loving care Peg received and for the friendships she made while there.  Additionally, they are incredibly grateful for the care provided by the team at Cleveland Clinic Akron General during her illness.

In lieu of flowers, the family wishes donations be made to Pleasant View Health Care Center's resident activity fund. Peg thoroughly enjoyed the activities provided, and it would honor her memory. Checks may be made payable to Pleasant View Health Care, with "resident activity fund" in the memo. They may be mailed to 401 Snyder Ave, Barberton, OH 44203. Donations may also be made to Cleveland Clinic Hospice in memory of Margaret Mendiola.  

Private services have taken place.

We met Peg when she lived at Pleasant View with other relatives of ours. She was always a friendly and pleasant person and went out of her way to interact and look out for the other residents. Our deepest condolences to her sister Kim and her brother-in-law Mike. She will be missed by many. May she now rest in peace!
