January 19, 1920 - December 20, 2020
Margareta Calvert, 100, of Mentor, passed away Sunday, December 20, 2020 at Mentor Ridge Health and Rehabilitation Center, Mentor. She was born January 19, 1920 in Thompson, Ohio to the late Friedrich and Martha (née: Thurmann) Roerdansz. Margareta (“Margie,” “Mutti”) was a strong and nurturing presence in her family’s lives, encouraging their education, supporting their pursuits, and ready to help whenever necessary, however she could. She loved to be outside, tending to her yard and to her plants or watching for the birds. She would often say as she grew older, “I love life!” She tried always to stay physically active and mentally involved, as she would also tell us, “I’m still learning. You have to use it or lose it.” She taught us all to be civil to everyone, and how to conjure a smile and a kind word, even when times were hard. She taught us the value(s) of being a family. She is loved and will be deeply missed. Survivors include her children, Ted Calvert, Russ (Laurel) Calvert Jr., Jim (Leigh) Calvert, and Martha Lannoch; daughter-in-law, Bobbi (Jack) Calvert; grandchildren, Scott (Jeannie) Calvert, Christopher Calvert, Jennifer (Nick) Dawson, Jason Calvert, Alexandra Lannoch, Katie Calvert and Meghan Calvert; great-grandchildren, Lane, Catrina, Klay, Kaden, Kyle, Kelly, Grace and Patrick; step-granddaughter, Robyn (Brian) Spataro and her children, Luca and Sam; treasured nieces and nephews around the world; and dear friend, Michal Thompson. Preceding Margareta in death are her husband, Russell Calvert Sr.; son, Jack Calvert; grandson, Steve Calvert; and siblings, Adolph Roerdansz, Hattie Neibauer, and Betty Lorincz. The family is grateful to the staff and nurses of Mentor Ridge and of Bella Care Hospice for their support and for their exemplary care of our beloved Margareta. Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, services and interment will take place at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to the Brunner Sanden Deitrick Funeral Home & Cremation Center, 8466 Mentor Ave., Mentor, OH 44060. Please offer condolences at www.brunners.com.
