Leila K. Straw Monday, May 27, 1918 - Saturday, September 2, 2017

Leila K. Straw, age 99, died Saturday. Born in New Philadelphia, she had lived in Massillon most of her life and was the former co-owner of Massillon Office Equipment. Preceded in death by her husband, William H. Straw. Survived by her daughter, Kathryn Volzer of Massillon, three grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and a great-great-grandson. Services are private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mercy Hospice, 4369 Whipple Avenue, NW, Canton, Ohio 44708.

I will always have fond memories of Mrs. Straw and Bill, my bossesĀ at Massillon Office Equipment during my high school years. They were more like family than bosses, and their patience with me extended well beyond the two times I wrecked the delivery truck and the many times I forgot to empty the dehumidifier in the basement.
