Sharleen E. Bertram Spuhler
Sharleen Spuhler passed away peacefully at Aultman Compassionate Care Center on December 25, 2019, after an extended illness. 
Sharleen was born in Canton, Ohio on  December 8, 1963, to Patricia R. Pucci Phillips and Guy R. Bertram.  She is preceded in death by daughter and son-in-law Emily E. Spuhler Merda and Scott Merda, step-father Michael J. Phillips and sister Temperance K. Bertram. 
She is survived by her children, Nicholas E. Spuhler and Samantha E. Spuhler; parents Patricia Phillips and Guy Bertram (Donna); sisters Kathleen R. Bertram Niamtu, Deborah K. Phillips Weilbacher (Greg), Heidi Bertram Brown (Aaron); brother Michael J. Phillips (Sharon); nephews Tim Collins (Gina), Ethan Weilbacher, Michael Phillips, Patrick Brown; nieces Madison Phillips Corrin (Brandon), Autumn Spuhler; great-nephews Ben Collins, Brandon Corrin, Nolan Collins; father of her children John E. Spuhler (Terri); in-laws David and Lucy Spuhler; loving aunts, uncles and cousins; special friends at the "carousel" at MidOhio Sports Car Course; and, many other caring and dedicated friends. 
Sharleen was a graduate of Canton City Schools and Ohio's STNA program.  Most recently, she was employed by St. Joseph Senior Living.  Shar's compassion and patience was an integral part of her service to the elderly and others in long and short-term care.  Her magnetic and kind personality immediately endeared her to those she met.  Sharleen's generosity seemingly knew no bounds as she was willing to help family, friends, and strangers alike.  She was an amazing Mom not only to her kids, but to her canine companions. 
Heartfelt thanks are extended to the staff of Aultman Hospital, University Hospitals (Lerner Tower and Seidman Cancer Center), Aultman Hospice Care Team and Aultman Women's Board Compassion Care Center.
