Barbara A. Stien

January 21, 1938 — December 4, 2020

Barbara A. Stien, age 82, of Massillon, passed away Friday, December 4, 2020, in the Inn at University Village, Massillon.

Born January 21, 1938, in Dover, she was the daughter of the late Theodore and Edna Lahmers Schaar. Barbara was a proud 1955 graduate of Dover High School. Following graduation she was employed by the Reeves Banking Co. On July 3, 1959, she married Thomas H. “Tom” Stien. The couple raised three children and shared nearly 56 years of marriage prior to Tom’s passing on March 1, 2015. Barbara was a homemaker - a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, who very much enjoyed sewing, baking and gardening - particularly growing flowers. Additionally, she liked crafts, watching the birds and wildlife around her home, and was a fan of the Cleveland Indians and The Ohio State University. Later in life, Barbara was employed by Hills Farm Supply in Canal Fulton. She was a member of St. John’s United Church of Christ and Unity Grange, both of Dover.

Barbara will be dearly missed by her children, Rebecca (Brian) Myers of Alliance, Rachel Stien of Massillon, and Daniel (Johanna) Stien of Canal Fulton; her grandchildren, Logan (Elizabeth) Myers and Kyle Myers; her great-grandchildren, Cecelia, David and Olivia; her brothers, Daniel (Joann) and Doyle (Mary) Schaar; and her several nieces and nephews.
