 Sandra Lee Dario (Hall), 84 of Akron, OH passed away peacefully on September 4, 2023.

She was born February 22, 1939, in Akron, Ohio, the daughter of Y. Grace (Norman) Hall/Porter and Leroy Hall.

On October 15, 1960, she married Albert Dario. Together they shared many happy years of marriage.

Sandy loved her sports teams, especially NASCAR, The Indians, and her “Brownies”. She was an avid reader, and her passion for reading led her to work as a librarian for many years at St. Matthews Parrish, where she enjoyed interacting with and reading to the students.

Sandy is preceded in death by her loving husband Albert Dario, longtime partner John Tucker, brother David and sister Nancy.

She is survived by brothers Jerry (Lena) Hall, Randall (Linda) Porter, Roger (Becky) Porter, sister Robin Hadnett, sons Patrick and Christopher Dario, and daughter Angela (Harry) Claypool. She is also survived by her beloved grandchildren, Daniel (Marissa) Dario, Ashlee (Adam) Mowls, Cassie Dario and Nikki Fetherolf. She also leaves her great grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews, and their families, as well as her sweet cat Annabelle.

Cremation has taken place, and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
