Allene Daw Fodor, 86, of Garrettsville, passed away on April 6, 2017, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on February 18, 1931 to Joseph and Rose (Allen) Toth.
Allene was born and raised in Euclid where she also graduated high school. She met her husband, Raymond Daw, at Fenn College which is now Cleveland State University. Allene graduated with a degree in business administration. She then resided in Euclid where she was actively involved with the Euclid Historical Society where she was Vice President for many years and instrumental in establishing the Euclid Historical Society Museum.
After the death of her husband, Raymond, she chose Garrettsville to establish her new home and shop, Enchanted Books and Antiques. Allene was widely known as the “Book Lady” due to her passion to match the right book with the right person. In Garrettsville, she met her second husband, Andrew Fodor, “the friendly Accordian Man.” Andrew and Allene enjoyed each other’s hobbies and their time spent together. After Andrew’s passing, Allene continued doing those things she loved right until the end.
Allene’s priority was to fulfill the legacy of giving which she had begun with her husband, Ray. They wanted their lives to make a difference.
She is survived by her children, Carol Ybarra of Texas and David (Candi) Daw of Middlefield; grandchildren, David, Christian and Logan and step-son, Peter, his wife, Eva and their daughter, Cecilia all of Germany.
