Edith Jeannette Loyer
January 29, 1927 ‒ October 12, 2021
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.
