Loreice Dorothy Seidner

March 11, 1925 ‒ December 14, 2014

Bellville, Ohio

Loreice Seidner believed there is room at the cross for you.  A prayer warrior, and strong Christian woman of deep faith in the Lord, her whole heart desire was to see all of her family in heaven.  Her total devotion and selfless love for her husband of 65 years, her daughters, her 33 grandchildren, and her entire family were her life.  A gift and blessing to all who met her, Loreice was always happy, always giving, and often surprised others with her funny sense of humor.

On Sunday afternoon December 14, 2014 Loreice Dorothy (Kerr) Seidner, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  She was 89.

She worked 15 years for Stevens Manufacturing at Lexington. She was a member of Clear Fork Alliance Church.

Born March 11, 1925, Loreice spent her first 9 years in Arkansas with her grandfather, a southern Baptist minister, and grandmother learning the Christian fundamentals of prayer, bible reading, and singing the old Christian hymns that she loved dearly. Loreice’s childhood in Arkansas was very hard as the entire family worked in the cotton fields even the very young. She was taught by her grandmother “life is like a rose, you start at the stem and go around and around the thorns all the way until you reach the top”. Her strong Christian rearing gave her determination in life. She was often heard to say “where there is a will, there is a way”.

Loreice is survived by children Shirley (Dick) Bisel of Bellville, Beverley (Larry) Russell of Lexington, and Loreice Rinehardt of Mansfield; grandchildren Amy (David) Stoyko, Beth (Brian) Faust, Maria (Terry) McKinney, Wendey (Brad) Laser, Steve (Rona) Clever, Matthew (Tammy) Bisel, Kathy (Steve) Kochheiser, Crystal Russell; great grandchildren Morgan, Taylor & Allie Stoyko, Brandon, Jake, & Bailey Faust, Jon (Katy), Chris (Shyla) & Michael McKinney, Tina (Corey) Stull, Eli & Nico Laser, Jessica & Whitney Clever, Heather (Devin) Koons, Shelbi & Ashley Bisel, Kaitlyn & Joshua Kochheiser; great great grandchildren Ashlynn, Parker & Erica; Kaylee Stull and baby Stull on the way; Allie & Conor McKinney; sister Wanda Kerr Dunbar; brother James (Helen) Kerr; Sisters-in-law Mary Coldwell & Marjorie (Bob) Van Dine; nephews Jeff & Brian Kerr, Doug (Susan) Dunbar, and many other nephews and nieces.

Loreice was preceded in death by her parents Wayne and Blanche (Parker) Kerr, her husband of 65 years Morris Eugene “Gene” Seidner on October 16, 2008, a son in law John Rinehardt, brothers-in-law Robert Dunbar & Wayne Coldwell; brothers-in-law & sisters-in-law Wanda & Ed Whitcomb, Helen & Bobby Seidner, Ruth & Marty Hagen, Bill & Henrietta Seidner, Bud & Ruth Seidner, Wilma & Ralph Giauque, Ruby & Jay White.
