Twila Argento, 86, of Dover, passed away, Monday, January 30, 2017 in the care of Community Hospice at New Philadelphia.

A daughter of the late Donald and Sylvia (Morris) Steinmetz, Twila was born July, 3, 1930 at Howenstine, Ohio.

Twila graduated from Canton South High School in 1948.  She retired from Wherley Optical after over 30 years of service as a medical receptionist.  She was a faithful member of First Christian Church in New Philadelphia.

Twila was truly loved by all who had the pleasure of knowing her and enjoyed more than anything, socializing with family and friends.  Quick to laugh and accepting of all, she graciously followed God’s command to love one another.  She was a loving and devoted wife, an exceptional mother and a beloved grandmother and great-grandmother.  Her true passion and joy was being with others and people often remarked that she never met a stranger.  She will be sadly missed by the hearts and lives she touched over her many years.

She is survived by her loving husband, Gerald “Joe” Argento, whom she married November 2, 1957; two daughters, Sylvia Argento and Lisa Crites; a granddaughter, Megan Carruthers; a great-grandson, Kyson Malcuit; brother-in-law, Eugene (Linda) Argento; sister-in-law, Mary (John) Melich as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Twila is preceded in death by her sisters-in-law, Anna Michna, Rose Pellegrino, and Helen Dorsey; brothers-in-law, Frank DeMonte and Sam Argento as well as her step mother, Martha Steinmetz.

Visitation will be held Thursday, February 2, 2017 from 5 to 8pm in the Geib Funeral Center at Dover.   In keeping with the family’s wishes the service and burial will remain private for family members.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions in Twila’s memory may be directed to Community Hospice, 716 Commercial Avenue, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663.

What a great friend Twila and her family were to my family for many many years. I will not get any nasty birthday card from her anymore and I will really miss fun we had doing that between us. My thoughts and prayers for you Joe and Sylvia. I will remember Twila and all the family forever.

Sylvia and Joe, Your mother / wife was such a wonderful lady. It was an honor and privilege knowing her. She always welcome me into her home with open arms. I will always remember her beautiful smile and sense of humor. The one story I will always remember is when she was riding her bike to or from work and she fell into the bushes. What a visual. I wished I could have witnessed that bike ride! I also remember her calling you and me "kid". She may be gone but the memories you have of your mother/wife will bring a smile to your face. Lots of love Saliva and Joe.

To the family and friends of Twila, we are so sorry to hear the loss of her, may her memories help to ease the pain. R.I.P. Twila With the Deepest Sympathy Tim and Mary Meiser

I know nothing I can say can ease the grief you feel right now, I have felt that grief myself. But I can say that the day will come when your grief will be replaced by happy memories and funny stories of your mother. You will hear her offer advice as you go through your daily routine. You see, while your mother is no longer on this earth, she will always be a part of you. Allow yourself time to grieve and take comfort in knowing that your mother will always live in your thoughts, your memories and your heart. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.
