Dolores Ann (Wilson) Leistikow, beloved mother, grandmother, cousin and friend, passed in her home on November 19, 2021, at the age of 90. She was known for her incredible work ethic and hardworking nature. Dolores worked for Oasis-EBCO Manufacturing for more than 40 years and Schottenstein's for 20 years. Not long after she retired from her two full time jobs, Dolores decided retirement was overrated! She became a Red Coat at The Ohio State University and was dedicated to them for nearly 20 years, working her last Ohio State basketball game just days before her passing. Her family, friends, co-workers, and OSU family will miss her very much.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Edith Faye Stebelton Wilson Welch in 2003 and her beloved elder son Jack Douglas Leistikow in 2014.
She leaves behind her younger son, Terry Emerson Leistikow and his wife Jennifer; her daughter-in-law Cathleen Leistikow; her grandchildren Denver Thomas Leistikow, Scot Jacob Leistikow, Andrea Marie Leistikow, Sheridan Nicole Mitchell (Jesse) and Thomas Edward Leistikow (Jana).
Service will be held at Taylor-Theller Funeral Home in Amanda, Ohio on Sunday, November 28. Calling hours will be held from 1:00-4:00PM with a brief service following. Dolores wished to be cremated, therefore interment will occur at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Reynoldsburg Senior Center or the American Legion in Pickerington.
