Jan Dorion

December 30, 1941 ‒ June 19, 2019

Mansfield, Ohio

MANSFIELD- Jan Dorion will be remembered for her love of family and amazing homemade recipes made from scratch. More importantly, she was genuine, kind, detailed, and professional.

Jan passed away Wednesday evening, June 19, 2019.

The daughter of Chester and Goldie (Au) Reed, Jan was born December 30, 1941 in Mt. Vernon and graduated from Fredericktown High School in 1960.

Jan worked for Dominion Electric for 5 years and retired from Warren Rupp, Idex in January of 2004, after 33 ½ years as Production/Inventory Control Manager.

On November 6, 1970, she married John Dorion who passed away on April 15, 2015.

Jan appreciated nature.   She enjoyed taking day trips throughout Ohio’s countryside and loved the beautiful golden and orange tones of the autumn season.  She also absolutely loved the snow.

When Jan prepared family meals, there were always leftovers neatly packaged, for everyone to take home.  She insisted on baking the side dishes, main course, and dessert‘s on her own.  It was her way of “loving on” her family.  Thanksgiving afternoons provided the best memories of good food and great company.  Her delicious cheesecake and cookies were family favorites throughout the year.

Generous, Jan also shared her wonderful cooking with friends and acquaintances’, especially those in need of a home cooked meal.

She is survived by her children Annette (Troy) Hurrell of Perrysville,  Brian (Randi) Dorion of Butler; stepdaughter Karen Sigler of Mansfield; grandchildren Levi Sigler, Sonya Dorion, Jason Sigler, Jonathan Hurrell, Andrew Sigler, Sharee Ferguson, Tiffany Hurrell, Savannah Dorion, and Devin Dorion; 15 great-grandchildren; two great-great grandchildren; sisters-in-law Luana (LeRoy) King, Marie (Dwayne) Washer, Martha (Larry) Lehman, Janet (Barb) Hawk, Carol (Paul) Hinzman; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband John Dorion, great-grandson Blake; twin sister Jean Reed; father-in-law and mother-in-law Russell (Florence) Hawk.

The family will receive friends, Sunday June 23, 2019, from 2-5 p.m. in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home where funeral services will be held Monday at 11 a.m.  Pastor Carol Kilgore will officiate and burial will follow in Maple Grove Cemetery.

  • Jan was a wonderful and beautiful woman inside and out! I always teased her that she probably cleaned her house in her heals because she was always dressed to the T!! I called her June Clever. I admired and looked up to Jan. She will be truly missed. May God give you comfort and peace.

  • I first met Jan in 1973 when I joined Warren Rupp Co. Jan was a dedicated caring professional, always doing her job to the best of her abilities. She helped when she could and was always there to talk and and be a sounding board when needed.
    Later on as we both departed from the job I enjoyed seeing her at breakfast a couple times a year and catching up on the old days. She will truly be remembered and missed. Deepest condolences to the family.
