MOUNT VERNON — Edythe J. Sites, 89, of Mount Vernon, formerly of Cleveland, died Thursday, June 16, 2011, at the Country Court Nursing Center in Mount Vernon.

Edythe was born April 12, 1922, to Morris and Rebecca Morrison in Brooklyn, N.Y. She resided in Brooklyn until her marriage to Robert Sites in 1946, when she moved to Cleveland, Ohio. She was a devoted wife and mother to her husband and three sons. After her sons were grown, she spent many hours volunteering her time at Playhouse Square and Gunning Park Golden Age Center, as well as being active in book clubs and a garden club. She was always proud of her husband’s lengthy military service in the Marines and Naval Reserve; and was an active member of the Fleet Reserve in Cleveland.

She was always ready to lend a hand and loved being with people and making new friends.

She is survived by her three sons, Robert W. (Judith) of Fredericktown, David (Amy) of Fort Wayne, Ind., and Jeffrey (Eileen) of Winston-Salem, N.C.; and by Thomas Oleniacz (Yolanda) of Los Angeles, Calif., who was like a son to her. She is also survived by eight grandchildren; four greatgrandchildren; and a sister, Sarah Pacheco of Florida.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 55 years, Robert W.; her brothers, Jack and Meyer Morrison; and a sister, Etta.

Per her wishes, there will be no service or calling. Memorial contributions may be made to Gunning Park Golden Age Center, 16700 Puritas Ave., Cleveland, OH 44135.
