Venora L. Hatley

Trumpets sounded, Angels sang, and the Lord smiled as a faithful servant entered Heaven’s gates on June 11, 2018.

At the reunion were her husband (Norman d. 2003), her dad (Roscoe d. 1975), her mom (Roxie d. 1945), her brother (Dwight d. 2017), and her grandson (Matthew d. 2017) along with countless friends and family members from years gone by.

Venora was born in the mountains of East Tennessee on February 26, 1926. She lived a simple but happy life based on one basic premise which was "Love the Lord with all your heart.” In years past, she had worked in Tennessee during WW2 at the war plants, clothing mills in North Carolina, and at Yoder Brothers, Manor Care, and Coventry Schools in Ohio.

She was a Sunday school teacher for many years at the Akron Baptist Temple and was active in the nursing home ministry until she was 88. She made a Bible for each family member with notes, memos, and thoughts that she had while reading passages every day.

She is survived by her son Charlie (Chuck) and his wife Rose of Apple Creek, Ohio; a granddaughter, Traci Sheipline of Burbank, Ohio and her husband Danny; a great-granddaughter, Megan Sheipline of Burbank, Ohio along with several cousins and nieces.

While we will sorely miss our times together, we rejoice in knowing that we will be together again and that then it will be forever. Thanks for all the Love, Prayers, and Precious Memories.

A funeral service will be held at Bacher Funeral Home 3326 Manchester Rd. Akron on Thursday, June 14, 2018 at 11:00 a.m., with visitation one-hour prior, Rev. Bob Patterson officiating.  Interment at Greenlawn Memorial Park.

You are in our thoughts and prayers. May God give complete comfort during this time of loss.
Our hope for you is that you would feel Gods love and strength in the days and weeks ahead during your time of loss. We hope the following verse provides you the peace of mind in knowing the promise that God makes to those who follow Him.

Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord-- for we walk by faith, not by sightand we are confident;
I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

II Corinthans 5: 6-8

Grammy - you are going to be sorely missed. I thank you for all you did for me. You and Norman were the greatest in-laws a girl could ever have. You taught me how to crochet and how to can vegetables and fruits. The two of you were always there for me no matter what and I never heard you utter a harsh word. I will miss our talks about Matthew and all of the things he pulled as a child. I know you wanted to go Home and you spoke to me often about how you just wanted to be with your family in Heaven and how much you missed Matthew. God has now taken you in his arms and brought you Home to be with those you loved and missed. Keep Matthew in line and now the two of you can continue your talks that you so missed. Love you with all my heart and soul. God has gained a beautiful Angel.
