Loice Ann Oreno, age 78, of Wooster, went home to be with the Lord, Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at her residence following a period of declining health. She was surrounded by her loving family.

She was born on September 17, 1942 in Wooster to Lester Franklin and Hazel Lavonne (Hodgen) Speck.

Loice Ann graduated from Wooster High School in 1960. She then attended Wittenberg University where she graduated in 1964 with her Bachelors in Education and later received her Master's Degree from the University of Phoenix.

She married David Keith Oreno and celebrated their 40 years of marriage before he went home to be with the Lord on January 16, 2015.

She had lived in Salt Lake City, Utah for 40 years where she taught school for 37 years. In 1999 she then moved back to Wooster to help take care of her parents.

Loice Ann was a very active member of The Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. She always enjoyed the many callings and opportunities she was given through the church.

She was a very kind, patient and strong woman who always kept a positive outlook on life and mostly loved spending time with her family. She was hard working and the best teacher to her many students. She was dedicated to her job growing young minds. She touched many lives in many ways throughout the years.

She is survived by her daughter, Challi (Jared) Hankins and her 3 grandchildren, Alora, Ariel and Logan all of Wooster; her dear friend, Mary Hankins, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and host of friends.

In addition to her parents and loving husband, she is preceded in death by her aunt, Evelyn Fulk.

Challi you don't remember me, but I knew your mom and dad many years ago in SLC. Loice Ann always welcomed me into your home, was a wonderful person with a heart as big as the world. She made the world a better place, you need to know that she touched so many other souls on this earth, and will be remembered and missed.

Challi, I'm so sad to hear of your mother's passing. She is truly a beautiful, lovely lady. We lived in the ward with your family in West Valley City and were saddened when you moved away. I hope you and your family have many happy memories to comfort you at this time.

In the summer of 1963 I was serving a LDS mission in the Great Lakes Mission and was transferred to the city of Wooster OH. I and my companion lived in an apartment and had a neighbor named Speck. That is where I first met Loice Ann. My companion would walk the yard brushing his teeth until finally Locie Ann would come out of her house and they would talk for 30-45 minutes. Such a wonderful family. They would bring us various goodies and treats. I don't remember her father but Loice Ann and her mother were always so nice and concerned about our well being. She eventually wanted to hear more about the LDS Church and was taught lessons by me and my companion. Eventually we were both transferred to Cincinnati, but a few months later Loice Ann and her mother came to Cincinnati where my companion baptized her and I confirmed her. I never heard more from her until several months later when she came to Salt Lake and called me. We spent all day together while I showed her around the valley. She updated me on her plans to eventually move to Salt Lake and teach school. She was still one of the nicest people I ever knew. The last I heard from her was more than 30 years ago when I heard she was living here and teaching school. Our paths never crossed after that time but my memories will always remain of that beautiful girl I knew (both physically and spiritually). May the LORD bless her and her family. George Throckmorton

Mrs. Oreno was my first grade teacher at Gourley Elementary. She was such a kind and fun teacher, I have fond memories of her class. Sending my condolences to her family.

What a wonderful, kind and thoughtful woman Loice Ann was. As a kid, I always looked forward to when she (and Challi) came to visit Ohio in the summers. So many family gatherings in New Pittsburg. My deepest sympathy to Challi, Jared and their family and everybody who mourns her passing.
