Rose Ann Loeffler, age 82, of Swanton, Ohio, entered into eternal rest, Wednesday, May 10, 2023, at The Toledo Hospital.
She was born on May 27, 1940 in Toledo, Ohio to her parents Dean and Luella (McCormick) Dowling. Rose Ann graduated from St. Mary’s High School and worked as a bank teller at Farmers and Merchants and National City Bank, before retiring from PNC Bank.
A devout Catholic, Rose Ann was a member of Holy Trinity Catholic Parish and its Altar & Rosary Society.
She also sang in the church choir, and was active in the Catholic War Veterans Post #479 Ladies Auxiliary.
Rose Ann enjoyed helping out around the family farm by driving tractor and delivering food to the field. She looked forward to family cookouts and baking some type of sweet dessert.
Her delicious homemade noodles were always a hit with her family during any holiday meal. When she wasn’t tending to her flower gardens or spending time with loved ones, Rose Ann loved perch fishing on Lake Erie.
