Tobie Switzer Silver, age 89, of Canton went home to be with the Lord on Friday November 20, 2020 and is reunited with her husband of almost 50 years, Herbert. She was born January 24, 1931 in Cleveland, graduated from John Adams High School in 1949, lived much of her life in Canton, Sandusky for 3 years and returned to Cleveland to be close to family and friends a few years ago. Her grandparents Sam and Regina Kronemer were instrumental in her upbringing. Well known for her volunteering in Canton and Cleveland, she was also the mother of 4 children. She, with Herb, instilled in their children a great sense of worth and they grew up without prejudice. Tobie treasured her Jewish roots and often hosted Jewish celebrations and made room at Passover Seder for everyone including those of other faiths. She was also a grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and great-aunt and missed sorely by all yet we know she is in a better place. Gratitude is expressed to Ellen and Bill for their care of “Mom” toward the end of her life.
Preceded in death by her husband Herbert; son Lanny (Michelle); and daughter Mindy. She is survived by son Steven (Kelly) Silver; daughter Ellen (William) Shankle; grandchildren Jeremy (Heather) Shankle, Martin (Haleigh) Shankle, Melissa Jellel; great-grandchildren Tyler and Kiersten Shankle; niece Randi (Bruce) Kottler; great niece Lani Skelley.
