Bob was born October 25, 1935 in Holgate, Putnam County, Ohio, the son of the late Robert and Cornelia (Schroeder) Vogt. He was a 1953 graduate of Crestline High School and a veteran of the United States Army serving from 1955-1957. It was during his service, while stationed in Maryland, that Bob met his future wife, Shirley. They married on September 27, 1958 and celebrated nearly 63 years of marriage together.

Bob was an incredibly loving husband and father who worked hard to always provide for his wife and eight children. For 25 years he worked at General Motors in Ontario, retiring in 1998, and was also a farmer his entire life. Bob was a very faith filled man who loved to talk about his faith in Jesus. He was an active member of Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church where, throughout the years, he volunteered often including being a part of the cemetery committee and past chairman of the church’s annual festival. He and Shirley also were active with Charismatic Renewal through the Diocese of Toledo.

Bob was a very active lifetime member of the Crestline Knights of Columbus and was proud to have gone on a mission trip to Haiti with a church group in Galion where he assisted in building a school. A true storyteller, Bob relished sharing tales of his ornery childhood.  He was an avid golfer, took delight in fishing in his pond, and for 22 years enjoyed wintering in Florida with Shirley.

Bob is survived by his wife, Shirley A. (Ridgley) Vogt; their 8 children: Russell Vogt, Ken Vogt, Karen (Brian) Alt, Brian (Amy) Vogt, Kurt (Mel) Vogt, Kimberly (Jeff) Hatfield, Teresa (Charles) Jessee, and Sheryl (Jon) Foley all of the Shelby and Crestline areas; 19 grandchildren; numerous great grandchildren; his twin brother: Richard (Marilyn) Vogt; and numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

James L. Reesman

James Leonard Reesman, age 83, of Mansfield, died Friday, September 10, 2021.

Jim was born February 12, 1938 in South Buffalo Township, Freeport, PA. He was a 1956 graduate of Freeport High School and immediately began a career with PPG, Ford City, which ultimately moved Jim and his family to the Mansfield area. He spent the remainder of his career at PPG in Crestline retiring in 2000 after serving 44 years with the company.

For over 20 years, Jim was a member of Gospel Baptist Church in Galion, and was a lifelong Steelers fan. As a fascinating hobby, Jim was a cave explorer – a spelunker to be exact – taking many trips to various caves with family and friends. Jim also was proud to have written a book about his childhood and life, called, “A Lifetime of Memories.” Some of his favorites were ‘50s music, specifically Beach Boys, saxophone music, Gravely tractors, books by author Clive Cussler, and his collection of model cars. One of his favorite places to be was the family “Camp” back in PA.

Jim will be remembered for his quiet and kind demeanor, along with his dry sense of humor. He always had a grin on his face and his inquisitive nature could keep any conversation going – he truly cared what you thought or how you were doing.

Jim is survived by his wife, Mary Elaine (Grafton) Reesman, whom he wed on October 17, 1959 and was the love of his life. Also surviving are their three daughters: Debbie (Russ) Corwin of Tucson, AZ, Vicki Howard of Mansfield, and Kristi (Jim) Hostetler of Luray, TN; 6 grandchildren: Brandon (Jennifer) Corwin, Joey Corwin, Nick Corwin (fiancée, Alyssa Gummert), Heather (Luke) Carpenter, A.J. (Kristy) Howard, and Ryan (Ally) Hostetler; several step-grandchildren; numerous great grandchildren; and a brother: Don (Marlene) Reesman of Huntsville, AL. He was preceded in death by his beloved parents, Leonard Charles and Ruth Alice (Gillam) Reesman.

Memorial services will be announced at a later date. Care for Jim and his family is being provided by the Penwell Turner Funeral Home, 168 West Main Street, Shelby, Ohio 44875.

She also loved to sing and sang most of her life, always simultaneously embarrassing her children while impressing them with her talent. After the early death of her late husband, Robert William Light, in 1994, Dawn remained a faithful and dedicated single mother to her two daughters: Nicole (Matthew) Light Densberger of Sacramento, CA and Stacey (Daniel) Jolliff-Light of Overland Park, KS, who survive her. Dawn taught her daughters to be strong, independent women who would like the world to know that they owe everything they are to their wonderful mother.

William Thomas “Bill” Houseworth

William Thomas “Bill” Houseworth, age 75, of Shelby, died Monday night, July 5, 2021 at his home following a brief battle with Mesothelioma.

Bill was born May 17, 1946 in Lima, Ohio to the late Thomas B. and Marie (McGuire) Houseworth and was a 1964 graduate of Lima Central Catholic High School. Bill spent his entire career in the insurance industry. In 1967, the field brought him to Shelby for a position in the IT Department at Shelby Mutual Insurance. He remained with the Mutual until its closing and then began working for a software programming company, Policy Management Corporation, until making his last career transition to Ohio Mutual Insurance Group from where he retired in 2013. When asked if Bill enjoyed his 45+ year career, he emphatically responded, “Very much so!”

To say that Bill was an active member of Most Pure Heart of Mary Catholic Church would be an understatement. Bill was devoted to the Church and serving the Lord in various forms. Throughout the years, Bill has been an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, lector, and currently served as the Sacristan. He assisted anywhere he was needed, especially during the Holy Days, making sure everyone knew what to do and where to be working quietly in the background so that things were perfect. He served as the chairman of the Building Maintenance Committee helping to maintain and keep the church beautiful inside and out.  Bill was active with home ministry and making hospital visits taking communion to the sick and shut-ins, had served on the festival committee many times over, had been a member of Parish Council, and was active with the Funeral Liturgy Planning Committee for over 30 years. The church and serving the Lord was not only his hobby, but his passion as well.

Outside of church, Bill was a Cub Scout and Boy Scout leader for many years not only at the local level but the district level as well, earning the District Award of Merit. One of his most favorite things was taking scouts to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. Bill was also a member of the Shelby Knights of Columbus, had been on the Zoning Committee for Sharon Township, and absolutely loved to read.

Bill is survived by his wife of 51 years, Sharon Sue (Aichholz) Houseworth, whom he wed on October 4, 1969; 3 children: Brian (Carol) Houseworth of Mansfield, Jeffrey (Keri) Houseworth of Oklahoma, and Susan (Reg) Lowe of Alabama; grandchildren: Dalton (Kayla) Lowe, Trevor Harris, Ellie Houseworth, Jordyn Harris, Derek Lowe, Olivia Houseworth, and William Thomas “Will” Houseworth; great grandchildren: Abigail Lowe, Allayna Wright, and one on the way; sister: Rita Kersker; brother-in-law: Duane (Linda) Aichholz; and numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. His parents and an infant sister preceded him in death.

Family and friends are welcome on Friday, July 9, 2021 from 4-7 pm at the Penwell Turner Funeral Home, 168 West Main Street, Shelby, where a rosary will be recited 7 pm.  Mass of Christian Burial will be on Saturday, July 10, 2021 at 10 am at Most Pure Heart of Mary Catholic Church, 29 West Street, Shelby with Fr.
