Vilma H. "Tootsie" (Vargo) Putnoky

March 29, 1931 ~ January 17, 2018 (age 86)

Vilma H. Vargo “Tootsie” Putnoky, age 86, of Marion, passed away peacefully at her home on Wednesday, January 17, 2018.  Vilma was born in Lorain, Ohio on March 29, 1931 to the late Frank Vargo and Rose Yuhunz Vargo.  She was a homemaker, wife, and mother and was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Emery J. Putnoky.  Taking care of her family was most important to her and she worked hard at it.  She also had a fun-loving side and really enjoyed her music and dancing with Emery.  Good-hearted and caring, she had true concern for those less fortunate than her and showed it.  Vilma loved to travel with bus tour groups and loved to fish.  She was loved by all who knew her and will be deeply missed.


Vilma leaves behind two loving children, Judith Rowand (Ron) of Marion and Emery J. Putnoky (Denise) of Elyria, Ohio; a sister, Shirley Mowery of Lorain, Ohio; three grandchildren, Kyle, Ryan and Heather Putnoky; and a great-grandson, Christopher.


A service of remembrance will be held at a later date.
