Dortha Tennant

Dortha "Do" Tennant (nee Devine), 92, passed away November 17, 2013 at home. Born in Ravenna in 1921, Do had remained a Portage County resident her entire life. She was a 1939 graduate of Kent Roosevelt High School and retired from Ametek-Lamb Electric after a 34 year career.

She then enjoyed many years of fun traveling, playing cards, bowling at Twin Star Lanes and golfing with the Meadowview Women's Golf League. She was, among others, a member of the Christian Women's Fellowship at the Ravenna First Christian Church, the Democratic Women, the Society of the Blind, and the Ravenna Business and Professional Women.

Family and friends meant the world to Do and she will be remembered for her warm smile, her positive life outlook, her willingness to always place others before herself and for her kind and generous heart. She was a sweet lady who will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved her.

Do was preceded in death by her husband Powell, brothers Harold Devine and Woody Devine and sister Janet Ward. She is survived by several nieces and nephews including Judy Devine of Uniontown, Greg Ward (Linda) of Cuyahoga Falls, Linda Matthias (Steve) of Westminster, Maryland, Jim Devine (Kathy) of Grand Junction, Colorado, Rick Devine (Carolyn) of Sagamore Hills, Terry Devine (Pam) of Mooresville, North Carolina, Louann Warner (Kim) of Holly Hills, Florida, Wayne Devine (Wanda) of Pembroke, Florida, Neil Tennant (Cheryl) of Kent, Joy Fluharty, Floy Morris, Cloy Winland and Troy Tennant all of New Martinsville, West Virginia, sisters in law Dickie Aschermann of Stow, Betty Devine of Kent, and "adopted Granddaughter" Barb Easlick of Uniontown.

In accordance with Do's wishes, cremation will take place and there will be no calling hours. A private service will be held for immediate family at Wood-Kortright-Borkoski Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Ravenna First Christian Church, 420 South Prospect St., Ravenna, OH 44266.
