Kathy Jo Archinal, 67, of New Philadelphia, died peacefully, surrounded by her family, on Saturday, August 17, 2019 while in the Hospice Center of Aultman Compassionate Care at Canton following a valiant battle with cancer.

Born in Union Hospital at Dover on July 30, 1952, Kathy was a daughter of the late Donald and Kathryn Spittle Maurer.

She was a 1971 graduate of Dover High School and began her career as a bus driver with Harcatus-Head Start before joining the New Philadelphia City Schools for more than 25 years. Kathy loved her job and enjoyed being with the students she had the pleasure of driving through the years.

In her free time, Kathy enjoyed crocheting, sewing, painting, working puzzles, making crafts, attending craft shows as a buyer and a vendor, and caring for her parrot, Kermit. She also enjoyed a good board game and card game with family; often showing her competitive side and making sure everyone followed her rules.

She will be deeply missed by her family, a daughter, Jennifer (Michael) Niedermayer of North Canton; a son, Mike (Leanne) Archinal of Wadsworth; her beloved grandchildren, Joshua, Austin, Emma, Hannah, and Jacob Archinal; a brother, Dale (Robbie Ann) Maurer of Hope, Arkansas; a sister, Karen (Don) Angel of Strasburg; and her nieces and nephews.

The family will greet guests on Thursday, August 22, 2019, from 5-8 PM in the Geib Funeral Center at Dover where Pastor Brian Flood will lead a service celebrating Kathy’s life on Friday, August 23, 2019, at 10:30 AM. Burial will follow in the Dover Burial Park. Following services, all are invited to a meal and fellowship in the Ramada Inn at Strasburg, 509 S. Wooster Avenue, Strasburg, Ohio.

In gratitude for their excellent care during Kathy’s final days, the family requests memorial contributions in her memory be directed to Aultman Compassionate Care Center, 2821 Woodlawn Ave. NW, Canton, Ohio 44708.

Jenn and Mike I am so sorry for the loss of your mom recently. We were always best of friends for many years and we always had lots of fun together with you and my boys. She was such a special person always bubbly. May she be at peace. May God bless you and your families.

I went all though elementary and high school with Kathy, who always, always had a smile on her face. She was truly a precious lady.

I worked with Kathy at Quick Chek Foods. What can I say about Kathy? Kathy was a person who cared about the people around her. She was a person who lived her values and expected everyone to do the same. She was one of the most creative people I knew. I really enjoyed the time I spent working with her. Losing someone is never easy, but I know from losing family members myself that God is a huge comfort in times like this.

Kathy was a beautiful person who cared for all, but especially her grandchildren. My prayers are with all of you.
