Obituary for Gladys Vollberg

Gladys C. Volk Vollberg, 94

Columbus, Ohio - Gladys C. Volk Vollberg, 94, of Columbus, formerly of East Liverpool, passed away peacefully Monday, October 1, 2018 at the Kobacker House in Columbus while surrounded by her loving family.

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on May 26, 1924, she was a daughter of the late Alexander and Theresa Lang Volk. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, Edward L. Vollberg, sons, Edward G. Vollberg and Thomas G. Vollberg, granddaughter, Tracy Vollberg, grandson, Edward Phillip Vollberg and granddaughter, Nikki Rai Vollberg, three brothers, Larry Volk, Raymond Miller and James Miller, and a sister, Nancy Kunold.

Beloved and admired by her family and many friends, Gladys lived her life in Pittsburgh, then East Liverpool in 1953 until ten years ago when she moved to Powell, Ohio to live with her daughter and son-in-law, Carol and Paul Gydosh. She was a devoted member of St. Aloysius Catholic and strong in her Catholic faith. She was active in the Ladies Auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus and the Alter and Rosary Society at the parish. Gladys always had a constant smile, spoke positively of everyone and always said “thank you.” She loved entertaining family and friends and traveling at a moment’s notice to Las Vegas, South Florida, and even Italy on her 80th birthday. She and her husband founded Tri State Glass in 1970 in East Liverpool where they worked together for many years.

Survivors include a daughter, Carol A. Gydosh and her husband, Paul of Powell, Ohio; daughter-in-law, Diane Vollberg, East Liverpool; nine grandchildren: Thomas (Tammy) Vollberg, Jodi (Paul) Shaw, Lori (Randy) Ball, Richard (Christie) Wolfe, James (Tammie) Wolfe, Troy (Autumn) Vollberg, Travis (Angela) Vollberg, Paige (Steve) Butters, Carly (Andrew) Keatts; 26 great-grandchildren and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. A sister, Alice Schaller survives as well.

Friends may visit the family at the Dawson Funeral Home in East Liverpool on Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. Father Scott Kopp of Holy Trinity Parish will officiate a Mass of Christian Burial at the church at 1:00 p.m. Saturday.

Burial will be in Columbiana County Memorial Park.
