Justine M. Ohlin

May 15, 1920 - November 01, 2018

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m, Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018, at St. Paul the Apostle Church in New Middletown for Justine M. Ohlin, 98, who passed away on Nov. 1, 2018.
Justine was born on May 15, 1920, near Venice, Italy, the daughter of Dominic and Anna (Lucchese) Ruzzine. She came to America in 1923 and settled in Bessemer. She graduated from Bessemer High School in 1938, where she was chosen May Queen her senior year.
Justine married George L. ("Woody") Ohlin Sr. in San Diego, CA in 1942 where Woody was serving at the time during World War II. Following the war, they settled in New Middletown where they went on to raise 10 children. Justine was a devout Catholic at St. Paul's where she had been a member of the Altar Guild. She was a devoted and loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was an excellent homemaker who enjoyed cooking and baking for her family. She also enjoyed playing cards and Bingo, but her favorite pastime was being with her family and friends, of which there were many.
She will always be remembered for her selfless nature and warmth.
Loving memories of her will be forever cherished by those she leaves behind, including five sons, Richard of New Middletown, Douglas (Denise) and Donald (Anne), both of Fort Myers, FL, Kenneth (Laura) of North Canton and Michael (Kelly) of Palmyra; two daughters, Dianne (Jeff) Wood and Cynthia Bones, both of New Middletown, daughters-in-law Connie Ohlin and Linda Ohlin of Florida; and a sister, Louise Bryan of Florida. She also leaves behind 19 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband; two sons, Robert and George ("Woody" Jr.); daughter, Anita ("Nina") Ohlin; her parents; a brother, Dominic Ruzzine; and a sister Mary Terranova.
Friends may call from 6 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 6, at the Terry A. Cunningham Funeral Home in Bessemer.
