Edith Jeannette Loyer

January 29, 1927 ‒ October 12, 2021

Marion, Ohio
Formerly of Waldo, Ohio

Edith Jeannette Loyer, age 94, of Marion, went home to be with the Lord on October 12, 2021.

Edith was born January 29, 1927 in Richland Township, Marion County to the late William and Ida (Witzel) Loyer.  She was preceded in death by sisters: Helen (Loyer) Watson and Martha (Loyer) Dennis.

Edith graduated from Claridon High School in 1944 and attended Marion Business College.  She worked as a secretary at Arrow Expansion Bolt and in 1966 joined Whirlpool Corporation’s Marion Division where she worked in the office for the rest of her career.  She was a dedicated and well-known volunteer at Marion General Hospital for many years and in 2015 she was recognized for volunteering more than 7,500 hours at the hospital.

She enjoyed many sports, especially basketball which she enthusiastically played in high school.  She later became an accomplished golfer, participating in several leagues and was Women’s Champion at the Mar-O-Del Golf Course for a number of years.

She was a kind and thoughtful person with a deep devotion to her faith.  Edith was in the 1941 Confirmation class of St. John’s Church in Richland Township.  In 1972, the church merged with St. Joseph’s United Church of Christ to form the Peace Community United Church of Christ where she continued as a dedicated and loyal member.

Edith will be dearly missed by her many relatives and friends, especially Allen “Bus” Augenstein, whom she met in first grade at Claridon School, and shared a lifelong friendship with.

Calling hours will be held from 10 – 11 am on Saturday, October 16, 2021, at Snyder Funeral Homes, DENZER Chapel, 360 E. Center St., Marion, with Reverend Joel Fetter officiating.  Services honoring her life will be held there at 11 am.  Burial will follow in Marion Cemetery.

Heartfelt thanks are extended to Kingston Residence of Marion for their dedicated and loving care.  Kingston made Edith feel at home.  Gratitude is also expressed to Capital City Hospice for their kindness in keeping Edith comfortable in her later days.

Memorial contributions may be made to Peace Community United Church of Christ, PO Box 176, Waldo, OH 43356, or for activities at Kingston Residence of Marion, 464 James Way, Marion, OH 43302.

  • I worked with Edith at Whirlpool. Such a sweet and loving person and beautiful inside and out. She is now reaping the reward of her faith with her heavenly father. I am so glad that I was able to get to know her and work with her.

  • I loved our visits together, I was able to get close with Edith. She was always so sweet, kind and loving. I will miss seeing her every Tuesday and Thursday. I will never forget her, she was a special lady. Thank you for allowing me to care for Edith. Emily Lake RN, Capital City Hospice ❤️❤️❤️

  • Edith made it easy to come to work everyday. Every day she smiled and asked me how my day was and what I planned. Picking up her favorite Chinese lunch is something I’ll miss we always loved those days. Very special lady who will be missed by us all at Kingston.

  • As others have said Edith was a special person. I knew her from church but became closer to her as she supported me in my second HR position at Whirlpool. She guided me through the responsibilities and never showed she was upset when I strayed from what she knew was right. She had that gentle way of letting me know and getting me back on track. She was also supportive of us regarding family and told me what I needed to do if I had to choose, ,work late,, or,, get to a family activity, especially sports participation. I mentioned that our daughter began piano lessons and we needed to find a piano and the next day she said, “Martha (her sister) and I want to give you our piano. We don’t play it and it might as well get some use” . When I was offered an opportunity to move to another Whirlpool location she was the first to congratulate me and the first to say, “We’re glad you’re back” when I returned to Marion. YES, Edith was a VERY SPECIAL lady and friend. She will be a SPECIAL HELPER in her new home with our Lord !
