Karen Pearl (Gentle) Tirakis passed away on Sunday, July 31, 2022 at Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare after a battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Karen was born on July 24, 1942 in Cleveland, Ohio. She was a graduate of North Olmsted High School in 1960. She spent her career working for the East Ohio Gas Company where she rose through the ranks and retired as a manger in the gas measurement department. She was very proud of being one of the first in her department to implement computerization and took computer classes at Tri-C. Karen was the mother to Edward Tirakis and proud grandmother to Will and Lydia Tirakis. She was an incredible artist with her talents including painting, drawing, crocheting, sewing, woodworking, and ceramics. She loved traveling, cruising and was thrilled when her grandchildren were able to see Walt Disney World with her. She was a longtime member of TOPS Doylestown as well as the Rittman Red Hats. One of her favorite activities was shopping, especially Christmas shopping for her family. She also loved animals and had many dogs over the years. Her most recent loves were her two cats, Kacey and Ringo.

Karen is survived by her son Ed (Diane) Tirakis of Wooster, grandchildren Will and Lydia Tirakis of Wooster, Brother Ronald (Cheri) Gentle of Norton, niece Tami (Eric) Barnes of Norton, nephew Ken (Tiffany) Gentle of Parma. Also surviving are great nephews Dakota (Bree) Kreps, Logan Kreps, Alec and Devon Gentle, and Aidan Barnes.
