Obituary Condolences

Nekic Barbara "Bebe" Nekic, 76, passed away peacefully on March 9, 2017 at the Kobacker House in Columbus, OH. Barbara is survived by her children, Ted Nekic, Ken Nekic and Lisa Ohmer (Charles), all of Columbus; and her grandsons, Alexander and Evan. Barbara was born in Cleveland to Frank and Helen Nemchak. In her early 30's she returned to college to finish her degree at Kent State, unusual at the time. She went on to teach Special Ed for 30 years in Canton and Columbus, typically in the inner city. She was a talented artist, creating collage and mixed media works. Her greatest gift was as a mother, being forever positive and kind, not just to her own children but to others as well; she was the original Kool-aid Mom. Friends and family received Friday, March 17 from 6-8 p.m. at MAEDER-QUINT-TIBERI FUNERAL HOME, 1068 S. HIGH ST. Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, March 18 at 11:30 a.m. Friends are welcome to visit a half hour prior to the service.
