Mae L. Hasseman, age 81, of Mineral City, Ohio, died Monday afternoon, September 28, 2020 in the Community Hospice Truman House at New Philadelphia following a brief illness.
She was born September 24, 1939 in Canton, Ohio and was the daughter of the late Cyrus J. and Eileen Mae Rueschman Hartong. On April 22, 1958, she married her husband, the late Glenn L.

She was a former league bowler at East Sparta Lanes, and late in life became a devoted fan of NASCAR. She was a former employee of Pavick's Poultry Farm on State Route #542 near Magnolia.
