Arlene V. (Schramm) Stegman, 89, of Perrysburg, passed away Wednesday, January 2, 2019, peacefully at Heartland of Perrysburg. She was born August 31, 1929, in Perrysburg, to Carl and Helen (Merrick) Schramm. Arlene married David Stegman on May 13, 1967, and he preceded her in death in 2017.
Arlene was a member of Grace Church, where she taught Sunday School for over 30 years and actively helped the Perrysburg Christians United Food Bank. She was involved in various bridge and euchre card clubs over the years, was a member of the 577 Foundation’s Garden Club, and loved going to the Way Public Library every Friday to pick up books. Affectionately known as “Ike” by her siblings, Arlene came from a large family and she loved spending time with everyone. That love of family also transferred to a love of her neighborhood at Village at River Place.
