On Wednesday July 25, 2018, Mary Lee (Donegan) Smeltzer, loving wife and mother of four boys, passed away at the age of 82 at her residence in Oregon, Ohio. Mary was born on November 25, 1935 in Toledo, Ohio to Otto and Katherine (Witaschek) Donegan. She attended Waite High School graduating in 1953. On August 19, 1955 she married William Smeltzer. While raising her boys in Curtice, Ohio, Mary also volunteered at St. Vincent’s Hospital. Then when Bill’s job transferred him they moved to Reynoldsburg, Ohio where they enjoyed many years together. Mary loved all of her family and friends unconditionally! She will be dearly missed.
