Mavis Girten, 100, of Bowling Green, Ohio, beloved wife of the late Elmer L. Girten, passed away on Monday February 25, 2019 at Heritage Corner in Bowling Green. Born in Toronto, Canada, Mavis was a graduate of the University of Toronto. She taught seven years in Toronto before moving to the States to marry her husband, whom she met while both were students at Columbia University in New York City.

After teaching in the Swanton and Rossford school districts, Mavis retired from the Perrysburg school system in 1977.

With her husband she enjoyed cottage life in Canada, traveling and attending elder hostels in Europe and in the United States.

A watercolorist, her many paintings in watercolor and pastel were treasured by family and friends. As a volunteer she served 16 years at St. Luke’s Hospital in Maumee, Ohio.
She was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Bowling Green, Ohio.
