Donald Shidler at age 100, died Friday, December 11, 2020 at the Wood County Hospital, Bowling Green, Ohio.
His 100 Year Legacy… Just sit back for a moment and think what Don saw during his life! He was born August 7, 1920 during the Roaring Twenties to Peter and Leona (Howe) Shidler in Grelton. During the Great Depression he was just a youngster but helped his family with the crops and animals. On June 21, 1946 he married Margaret Amelia Bockbrader in New Rochester, Ohio. He was a wheat, soybean and corn farmer but also milked his fair share of cows. Don ran a tow motor at Temco radish factory in McClure for 30 plus years.
His Family… He is survived by daughters: Barbara (Dean) Dawson, McClure and Marsha (Stephen) Fritz, Holgate; six grandchildren; eleven great grandchildren and a brother Clifford Shidler, Bryan. He was preceded in death by his loving wife Margaret, of 67 years.
His Farewell Services… Friends will be received in the Zachrich Family Funeral Home, 114 William Street, Holgate on Tuesday, December 15, 2020 from 11:00 am until the celebration of Don’s 100 year life at 1:00 pm.
