Obituary

Mara Lynn Pleva (nee Taylor), age 48, left her earthly body to be with Jesus on Sunday, May 1, 2022 after a long, well fought battle with cancer.
Mara was born to Lowell and Laurie (nee Tiber) Taylor on July 9, 1973 at Booth Memorial Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio. Mara was a lifelong resident of Geauga County, graduating from Berkshire High School, class of 1991. She then attended Kent State University for under and post graduate degrees. She enjoyed working at UH Geauga Hospital as a Human Resource Recruiter, but if you asked her, she would say her biggest accomplishment was being a Stay-at-Home Mom. Something many people don’t know is that she was a Christian Romance Novelist.
 
In 1999 Mara met the love of her life Walter and married him in June of 2001. They were blessed with three children, Walter (Sam), Benjamin and Megan, whom were her most treasured blessings. They enjoyed travelling as a family, raising animals for 4-H, going to movies and just being together with each other and their extended families. Mara was a member of The New Testament Baptist Church in Claridon, Ohio and an avid follower of Jesus Christ.
She is survived by her loving Husband Walter, Sons Sam and Ben, and Daughter Megan; Parents Lowell and Laurie Taylor; Brother Paul (Hannah) Taylor, Sister Hannah (Bradley) Deliere, Sister-in-Law Maureen (Gary) Lujan, Brother-in-Law Lawrence (Kim) Pleva, Grandmother Gerry Tiber and many Nieces, Nephews, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.
Proceeding her to Eternal Life, Father and Mother In-Law Walter B. & Linette (Funk) Pleva, Grandparents Edward and Betty (Reid) Taylor and Grandfather Paul Tiber.
