Tiffany Lee Wieland  1978 - 2017 

Tiffany Lee Wieland
(nee Gasser), 40, of Rittman, Ohio, formerly of Commerce Township, MIch., passed away unexpectedly at her home.

She was born on July 13, 1976, in Rittman to her loving parents, Fredrick and Mary (nee Baltic) Gasser.   She was their eldest child and only daughter.   She was the light of their life.   She was adored by two younger brothers, Ryan and Evan Gasser - who will forever remember her guidance and love.

Tiffany graduated from Wadsworth High School in 1994 and obtained a Master's Degree in occupational therapy from the Medical College of Ohio.   She was a member of the Apostolic Christian Church and gave her life to the Lord on July 19, 1998.   She was the cherished wife of her devoted husband, Stephen, whom she married on September 30, 2001.   They spent most of their life together in Michigan and attended the Detroit Apostolic Christian Church.   He was her faithful helpmate and guide. Together they raised four children; Alexa (seven), Gabriel (five), Austin (four) and Brennan (two) -- to know and love the Lord.   Her children were the joy of her life, and she devoted herself wholeheartedly to them.  

Tiffany  will be forever remembered as selfless, kind, and caring by all her family, friends, and patients, especially Carmen Burgie.   She remained a faithful servant of her Lord Jesus until she was called Home on February 19, 2017.   Her loved ones will grievously miss her and entrust her safekeeping to the Lord until we can be together again.

"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd:  he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young."    (Is 40: 11).

She is survived by her husband, Stephen, in Rittman;  her four children, Alexa, Gabriel, Austin, and Brennan, of the home;  her parents, Fred and Mary Gasser of Rittman;  brothers, Ryan (Coleen) Gasser of Norton and Evan (Amanda) Gasser of Rittman;  in-laws, Rodney and Evelyn Wieland of Bay City, Mich.;  brothers-in-law, Andrew (Krista) Wieland of Livonia, Mich., and Timothy (Barbara) Wieland of Canton, Mich.;  sisters-in-law, Bonnie (Jesse) Bedolla of Canton, Mich., and Beverly (Lorne) Dyar of Plain City, Ohio;  maternal grandfather, Mitchel Baltic of West Salem;  maternal aunt, Nettie Baltic of West Salem;  great uncle Walt Baltic of Norton;  many nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles, other family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandmother, Violet Baltic, and parental grandparents, Robert and Neva Gasser.

Services will be held Saturday, February 25, at 10:30 a.m. at the Rittman Apostolic Christian Church, 10699 Steiner Rd., Rittman with ministers of the church officiating.   Burial will follow at the Apostolic Cemetery.
