Mrs. Multari was born Nov. 17, 1942, in Grove City, a daughter of John and Margaret "Peggy" (Timko) Rzepka. A lifelong area resident, she was a 1960 alumna of Sharon High School.

Many, many memories of this truly memorable lady. She never got tired of a dozen or more teenagers (or younger, as we go back quite a way) constantly hanging out at her house...whether we were playing street hockey in front of her house on McClure, or playing football in the side yard on Shady Avenue. She was one of the 'cool moms', at a time when being a cool mom was not all that popular. She hauled us all over the valley before we got our driver's licenses, and I'm sure she would have gladly driven us off a cliff, we were so annoying. But, boy, if you ever made her mad, she let you have matter whose kid you were. To Mark and Jon, my deepest sympathies. Your mom was truly one of the... best. We were all lucky to have grown up with her.Read more
