Our Almighty and Merciful Lord opened Heavens Gates on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 to welcome Karen (Kopena) Tutak, age 59 of Rossford, Ohio after her lengthy health struggle. She was born on September 17, 1958 in Toledo to John and Mary (Hendrzak) Kopena. She married Edward Tutak on November 8, 1985 and together they raised their beautiful daughter, Aubrey.
