Charles Arden Muehleisen, 1920-2013

Charles Arden Muehleisen (1920-2013)
My first cousin twice removed Charles Arden Muehleisen passed away on July 11, 2013, at his home in Cortland, Ohio.

Charles was born July 11, 1920, in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. Our common ancestors were his grandparents William Malcolm McNaughton (1850-1914) and Mary Elizabeth Grant McNaughton (1856-1946), his mother's parents. They were my great-great-grandparents, my father's father's mother's parents. By profession Charles was an architect and ran his own firm for twenty-five years, before retiring in 2001. He served in the US Army in World War II and was active in several community organizations, including the Warren (Ohio) Rotary, the Boy Scouts, and the First United Methodist Church of Warren. I never met him.

Charles married Peggy E. Patton (1918-1992) in 1948. They had two daughters, Debra Elayne Muelheisen Rodriguez, who passed away in May 2012, and Beth Arden Muehleisen Ensign, who put together with her niece Barb Rodriguez and her son Andrew Ensign a lovely memorial video, which you can view here.

A memorial service was held on July 18. The family suggests memorial donations to the First United Methodist Church of Warren, 309 N. Park Avenue, Warren, Ohio 44481, or to The Rotary Club of Warren, P.O. Box 68, Warren, Ohio, 44482.
