Arlene Jernejcic, 99, died peacefully of natural causes on January 28, 2019 at the Gateway Assisted Living facility in Euclid, Ohio. She was born December 1, 1919 in Morgantown, WV the daughter of the late Attilio and Italia Lucci.

Arlene is survived by her three sons, Frank and wife Martha Korona of Morgantown, Carl and wife Kathy of Concord, Ohio, and Randy and wife Annette of Bear, Delaware; nine grandchildren, Randy Jernejcic and wife Jacqueline of Chardon, Ohio; Corinne Tyler and husband Wayne of Columbus, Ohio; Paul Jernejcic and wife Tara of Frederick, MD; Angela Jernejcic and partner Wade Schin of Seattle, WA; Jeremy Jernejcic and wife Elizabeth of Olmsted Falls, Ohio; Elizabeth Jernejcic of Cleveland, Ohio; Susan Reynolds of Willoughby, OH, and Amelia, Andrew, and Anthony Jernejcic all of Bear, Delaware; and eleven great-grandchildren; brothers James “Jeno” Lucci and August “Augie” Lucci; sisters Mary Ann Dalzot and Virginia Gibson and husband Nelson; and sisters-in-law Maxine Lucci and Liz Lucci; and many Morgantown nephews and nieces.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Carl Jernejcic, in 1990; sisters Florence Lorenze and husband Steve, and Ennis DeMichele and John; brothers Attilio “Tito” Lucci, Abraham Lucci, and Michael Lucci and wife Wanda; brother-in-law Huge Dalzot; and sisters-in-law Anna Mae Lucci and Mary Lucci.

She moved to Cleveland in 1944 to seek work and where she met her husband. Most people did not realize that she only had a third-grade education although she worked all of her life in several factories while raising her family. Her last employment was at the Christian Life Center in Euclid when she finally retired at 87. She was instrumental in helping to raise six of her grandchildren during their formative years and even through high school and college.

The family would like to give special thanks to the staffs at the Gateway Family House Assisted Living Center who went out of their way to assist her during the past several years in maintaining her independence. Gateway Healthway Center and Heartland Hospice also helped to keep her comfortable during her last weeks and provided compassionate care.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Heartland Hospice Memorial Fund, 4807 Rockside Road, Suite 110, Independence, Ohio 44131

My sincere condolences go to the family at this trying time. There are scripture passages that comfort me greatly that I would like to share. Isaiah 25:8 tells of a time that God will swallow up death forever. Also, Job declared that those who have died will be resurrected to a better life. And Psalm 37:29 is God's promise that all will be able to live forever in His restored paradise. May God’s peace and comfort be yours. ( Isaiah 26:4).
