Westlake woman tracks down descendants from Tralee
Dorothy Titera is one of Westlake’s most industrious volunteers. Like the other 79 volunteers honored by the city of Westlake on April 18, Titera has spent countless hours volunteering for the city.

Tralee is one of Westlake’s sister cities, and the city hosted dignitaries from the country last week. In 2011, while the city was celebrating its bicentennial, Titera volunteered in two …

By offering webcasts of funeral services, out-of-town mourners who can't make it to the services can participate, reported the local NPR affiliate.
Daniel Berry of Berry & Martens Funeral Home in Westlake, was one of two funeral directors featured in a WCPN story about webcasting funeral services. And although Berry offers it to his customers, it isn't used frequently, he told WCPN, because in-person services are still very important to mourners. Also featured was Cleveland Heights funeral home Berkowitz-Kumin-Bookatz, and one of their virtual funerals was included in the story. The new concept was introduced through the help of the company National Webcast, which is bringing the technology to funeral homes across the country at an increasing rate.
