Barbara J. Vaculik, age 82, of Metamora, Ohio, passed peacefully, Monday, March 20, 2017, at Ebeid Hospice in Sylvania, with her loving family at her side. She was born on June 26, 1934 in Toledo, Ohio to George and Mildred (Nulph) Shoemaker. On November 8, 1952, she married Frank Vaculik at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Assumption.
