Weybridge remembers Mabel Clapp

We regret to announce long-time Weybridge resident Mabel Clapp (9117 Muirkirk Dr) passed away on Monday, January 24, 2002. She was an amazing 103 years old. Weybridge celebrated Mabel’s 100th birthday back in 2018.

All are welcome to send flowers or leave condolences on her memorial page.

Mabel was born to Italian immigrants Peter and Virginia Fiori at the end of World War I. She lived her whole life in central Ohio, growing up on the west side of Columbus and later in Upper Arlington and Dublin. She graduated from West High School in 1936, worked at Mills Buffet, where she met her husband Ferdinand. She retired from Huntington National Bank in 1988. She influenced three generations of her family through her devotion, quiet strength, and selflessness.

Mabel was preceded in death by husband Ferdinand and daughter Melinda Wolf. She is survived by her son Eric Clapp, her grandchildren Michelle Clapp Hohler, Kevin Clapp, Bethany Wolf Sullivan, Anneliese Wolf Johnson, Susanna Wolf Huffman, and her great grandchildren Corrina, Brock Hohler, Danica, A. J. Clapp, Emma, Jack Sullivan, Mallory, Weston Johnson, and Veronica Huffman.

A reception will be held Friday, February 4, 2022 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the John Quint Treboni Funeral Home (1177 W 5th Ave, Columbus, OH 43212). This includes a 4:00 p.m. Prayer Service hosted by Deacon Frank Iannarino.

Mabel will be laid to rest in Sunset Cemetery (6959 W Broad St, Galloway, OH 43119) at a later date.

Robert “Bob” Dean Watts, Age 86, passed away Tuesday, January 11, 2022. He was born November 27, 1935 in Woodsfield, Ohio. He was predeceased by his parents, brother, and sister.

Robert is survived by his wife of 64 years, Josephine, children Beth Stolz, Robert Watts, Brian Watts, Bill Watts, and Lisanne Ludwig, and 12 grandchildren.

Bob was a proud veteran of the U.S Navy and Marine Corps Reserves. He was a hard-working man and retired from Consolidated Freightways as a transport operator after 30 years.

Robert was also a devoted family man. His grandchildren were his greatest love, always supporting them, and being involved by attending their various activities. He was a long-time member of St. Brigid of Kildare, and Knights of Columbus 3rd degree, as well as a member of the Catholic War Veterans post #1936.

He was a bright presence in people’s lives and will be deeply missed. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Bob’s name to St. Brigid of Kildare Church. The family held a private mass at St. Brigid of Kildare.

Private snow removal service available to Weybridge residents

Concerned about shoveling snow from the driveway this winter? In years past, some Weybridge residents have worked with Tom Wiseman (and Jim Severance before Tom), who can provide privately-paid plowing and shoveling services.

As a courtesy to our Weybridge neighbors, here are Tom’s services and options:

  • For existing customers, snow clearing services are $20 per driveway from 2-4 inches; $25 from 4-6 inches; $30 over 6 inches
  • If you contact Tom to plow on the snow event day, the cost is $30 and he’ll plow after he finishes plowing existing customers
  • Service includes shoveling walks to the front door
  • Tom shows up automatically after 1.5 to 2 inch snow events
  • Plowing services start after snow stops falling, and Tom will plow/shovel again after accumulation of an additional 2 inches of snow

He uses a Grasshopper with plow and rubber wheels. To arrange service:
