Jacqueline Mace Kozarevic, 81

Jacqueline Mace Kozarevic, 81, went home to be with her Lord
and Savior on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2024.
Born on June 2, 1942, in Barberton, Ohio, Jackie was a dearly
loved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. Her faith
was central to her life. She was an encourager and prayer warrior for
her husband, children and grandchildren who were her greatest joy.
She also found much happiness and companionship with many pets
she had throughout her life.
Education and continued learning was a fundamental part of who
she was. After receiving her BS and MS degrees from The University
of Akron, she began her teaching career at R.G. Drage Career Center
in the business department and taught continuing education classes at
Wayne College. She found much joy and fulfillment working with
teenagers academically and in turn became a role model to so many.
It was also important to her to give back to the community by
belonging to many philanthropic clubs and organizations holding
leadership roles in most.
Upon retirement, she found much enjoyment traveling with her
husband, Tom, her life-long love and companion of 58 years,
throughout the continental United States. She will be remembered as
a woman of faith who displayed God’s love to her husband and family
and to all she met.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Russell and Lucille
Mac; brother, Thomas Russell Mace; she leaves behind, husband,
Thomas Kozarevic of Barberton, Ohio; daughter, Jay Anne (Pete)
Medure of Cranberry Twp, Pennsylvania; sons, Thomas Eric
Kozarevic of Akron, Ohio and Todd (Jennifer) Kozarevic of Norton,
Ohio; grandchildren, Andrew (Jerica) Medure, Thomas Medure and
Lauren Medure of Cranberry, Twp, Pennsylvania, Garrett Blaze of
Northfield, Oho; great-grandchildren, Kaysea Marshall, Sage Medure
and Cleo Medure of Cranberry Twp, Pennsylvania; brother, Roger

(Ann) Mace of Pickerington, Ohio; numerous cousins, nieces and
nephews, all of whom were special and dearly loved.
The family expresses thanks to the staff at Cleveland Clinic/Akron
General, Edwin Shaw Rehabilitation Hospital, The Inn at CoalRidge
and Harmony Hospice for their compassion and care.

Don’t weep for me
For I’ve made it home
Through Heaven’s gates
There I may roam.
Wipe your tears
And dry your eyes
I’m in a better place
With Heaven as my prize.
Don’t weep for me
No tears and no sorrow
Live life for Jesus
He promises tomorrow.

Calling hours will be on Wednesday, April 3, 2024 from 10-11am with
a private family service at 11am at Campfield-Hickman-Collier Home
with Pastor John Henninger officiating. Burial at Greenlawn
Memorial Park.
