Martha (Schreiner) Beer, 82, of Prospect Heights, Illinois, passed away March 12, 2017 at her daughter's home in Mentor, Ohio. She was born August 1, 1934 in Wildon, Austria. She became a U.S. citizen in 1966.

Mrs. Beer worked as a floor manager and florist at Dominick's grocery store. Her hobbies included: gardening, sewing, watching hockey, and ensuring no one went hungry under her watch. Martha was known for her delicious food. A family favorite was a sandwich that we nicknamed the "martywich." Whenever she visited family, the first thing she would do is make sure everyone was fed. Martha loved spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was very active in their lives, taking them to the ducky swing at the park, ice cream shops, go-kart riding, and a family favorite of watching airplanes fly over her home.

Survivors are her children, Sue (George) Mitroi, Sandy (Barry) Maystead and Andy (Jennifer) Beer; grandchildren, George Mitroi, Angela Mitroi, Adam (Melissa) Mitroi, Chelsea (Michael Scaperato) Mitroi, Lisa (Rob) Tobias, Brandon Maystead, and Colin and Lily Beer; great grandchildren, Jordan, Matthew, Ava, Madisyn, Grace, Robert, Aidyn, Jaxon and Aybel; and her sisters, Millie Bisenz and Hilda Velert.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Fredrick and Ludmilla Schreiner; and her brothers, Karl, Louis, Willie, Oscar, Odie and Fritz. Her granddaughter Chloe.

Private family services will be held in memory of Martha.

Arrangements entrusted to the Brunner Sanden Deitrick Funeral Home & Cremation Center 8466 Mentor Ave., Mentor, OH 44060.
