Mary A. Fouts, 82, of Kent, died Sunday, July 24, 2016 at Akron City Hospital Medical Center.

She was born March 6, 1934 in Suffield, to Joseph P. and Helen E. (Klein) Wohlwend. She was a 1952 graduate of Suffield High School, and later married her high school sweetheart "K" on September 8, 1956. Mary was a secretary in the Financial Aid office at Kent State University retiring in 1999 to devote the rest of her life to her grandchildren and great granddaughters. She was a member of St. Joseph Church in Randolph. Mary was also a member of the cancer survivor group at UH Portage Medical Center (RMH). She played in the Thursday morning Golf League for over 30 years at Suffield Springs, always waiting for the next fish fry. She was an avid supporter of the American Red Cross Blood Bank donating nearly 20 gallons. Mary could always be found on Wednesday mornings having breakfast with her sisters and granddaughters at Brimfield Steakhouse. Every Friday night was spent eating supper and playing cards with her sisters. The first Tuesday of every month Mary would meet the members of her High School class for lunch at Hartville Kitchen, with great grandchildren in tow. Mary was always willing to take care of her neighbors and friends in need and will be greatly missed by all whose lives she touched. Mary was a special Mimi to many, but most importantly to her Scooter and Sweet Pea Girl.

She is survived by daughter, Cathy ( Dr. Al Haight) Fouts-Tomala of Suffield; grandson, Scott "Scooter" (Leah) Tomala of Brimfield; granddaughter, Lauren "Sweet Pea" (Dan Bauer) Tomala of Kent; great grandchildren, Ellie Kae Tomala and Alaina "Lanie" Tomala; brothers and sisters, Irene Daughtery, Harry (Anita) Wohlwend, Rose (Ralph) Herman, Jane (Frank) Kordinak George (Elaine) Wohlwend, Dr. Albert (Kathy) Wohlwend, Joseph (Becky) Wohlwend. Also surviving are many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and God children, who all hold a very special place in her heart. She was preceded in death by her husband, Fredric "K" Fouts; son-in-law, Walt Tomala; brother, William Wohlwend; and sister, Agnes Wartko.

Calling hours will be held 2-4 and 7-9 PM Wednesday, July 27 at Bissler & Sons Funeral Home in Kent. Funeral mass will be held 10:30 AM Thursday, July 28 at St. Joseph Catholic Church with Fr. Thomas Acker officiating. Burial will be held at St. Joseph's Cemetery. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Rootstown Fire and EMS, 4152 Tallmadge Road, Rootstown, OH 44272.
