Joseph Andrew Yanice Obituary
Joseph Andrew Yanice
age 62, of Atwood Lake passed away on Sunday morning, Feb. 13, 2011 in his wife's arms, after a courageous battle with
esophageal and liver cancer. A twin son of Regina Tyke Yanice of Atwood Lake and the late Joseph Yanice. Joe was born April 28, 1948 in Dover, Ohio. His identical twin brother, Frank Allen was stillborn that day. A 1966 graduate of Tuscarawas Valley High School, Joe was a journeyman electrician by trade. He was a proud member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Canton Local #540 for 43 years.
Joe is survived by his wife, Sally (nee Postlewaite) Yanice, his high school sweetheart, whom he married on May 27, 1967. He is also survived by two daughters, Stephanie Jo (Martin) Maynard of Carroll County and Jennifer L. Otte and granddaughters, Chloe and Meggie Otte and their father, Richard J. Otte II, all of East Sparta. He was especially proud of Chloe and Meg for their scholastic achievements and their athletic abilities, playing traveling softball with Ohio Ice. He is also survived by a sister, Mary Ann Wolfe of Atwood Lake; two nieces; one nephew; and sister and brother-in-law Jeanne and Dan Denino of Jackson Township. Joe was known for always having an open door and a full refrigerator for friends, hunters and fishermen. He asked to remember special Union Brothers (you know who you are) and also to remember years of ice fishing with his buddy, Rould Lane and years of successful arrowhead hunting with dear friend, Bob Beck. Joe's devotion to his family, his mom and his friends will always be remembered. Special thanks to Dr. Sunitha Vemulapalli and the nurses at Morning Star, Matt, Barb, Jenn and Megan, and "Rocking'" Robin, for all of your special care and compassion. Many thanks, too, to Aultman Hospice nurse, Sally Cockle and her staff.
