Justine Sperling passed away peacefully surrounded by family on December 7, 2022. She was 97 years old. She lived a long and fruitful life raising four children with her husband Roy to whom she was married for 72 years. Together they have eight grandchildren and ten great grandchildren. She spent most of her retirement years being a fantastic wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Justine was an accomplished knitter and made afghans for each of her grandchildren in the colors of the colleges they attended. As a Registered nurse at Toledo Hospital and at the WW Knight family practice center, she provided loving care for many infants, children and adults. Additionally she was known for her culinary skills, making family favorites such as her Hawaiian chicken, corned beef brisket, lokshen kugel and made from scratch brownies.
She leaves behind her husband Roy and children Matthew (Gail) Sperling, Ilene (Gary) Damrauer, Nancy (Stephen) Goldberg and Neil (Vania) Sperling. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
