Roma Alice Grant
BUTLER — Roma Alice Grant, 46, of Fowler Road, Butler, died Monday evening, April 28, 2008, in Akron General Hospital from injuries she received in a rural Knox County automobile accident.
She was born Dec. 20, 1961, in Mansfield to Gale and Alice (Kirkpatrick) Baker and was graduated from Clear Fork High School in 1980, where she served as homecoming queen her senior year.
Roma earned her degree in mechanical engineering from North Central State College and had worked the past 10 years in quality control with F.T. Precision Inc. in Fredericktown.
A lifelong resident of the Clear Fork Valley, Roma enjoyed her time outdoors. She and her husband Roger hunted small game together, fished Pleasant Hill Lake and camped all across Ohio and West Virginia. When their son Heath was born, they took him along and taught him, and focused on his development. Roma was truly devoted to her husband and son.
Described as peppy and high-spirited, she will be remembered for her loving personality, and her cheerful laugh. The smile on her face was as bright as a light — like the beam that would shine from the many lighthouses she collected.
She is survived by her husband, Roger A. Grant, whom she married March 13, 1986; their son, Heath Grant of Butler; sisters and brothers-in-law, Rhoda and Mike Brown, and Roberta and Walter “Pete” Knuckles, all of Bellville; brothers and a sister-in-law, Rodney Baker of Fredericktown, Randy and Brenda Baker, Ronald and Kathy Baker, and Roger and Loretta Daily, all of Bellville; her mother-in-law, Beverly Grant of Perrysville; brothers- and sisters-in-law, Brian and Lynda Grant of Butler, Virginia Grant of Prospect, and David and Sherry Grant of Durand, Wis.; numerous nieces and nephews; and aunts, uncles and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her parents; and her father-in-law, Charles Grant.
The family will receive friends Friday, May 2, from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home, where the service will immediately follow at 7 p.m. Pastor Vinton Morgan will officiate.
Memorial contributions to the Roma A. Grant Memorial Fund to further her son’s college education may be made at the funeral home. Online condolences may be made to the Grant family by visiting: www.snyderfuneralhomes.com.
