Orland E. Rumschlag


Orland E. Rumschlag, 88, of Fostoria passed away Tuesday, January 31, 2017 in his home.

He was born on May 15, 1928 in New Riegel, Ohio to the late John A. and Emma (Geckle) Rumschlag. He leaves his loving wife of 60 years, DeAnne (Zender) Rumschlag to cherish his memory, along with children; Rebecca (Don) Miller, of Tallahassee, Fla., Roy (Brenda) Rumschlag, of Fostoria, Donna (Gerald) Leemaster, of Fostoria, Rita (Emmet) Sheeran Jr., of Fostoria, Lois (Larry Gardner) Rumschlag, of Fostoria, Regina (Anthony) McClanahan, of Florence, Kentucky, and Ben Rumschlag, also of Fostoria; 11 grandchildren, Lance Reinbolt, Eric Rumschlag, Vanessa and Kevin Leemaster, Jessie and  Nathan Sheeran, Jolene Duque, Jay, Jenny, and Julia McClanahan, and Sarah Rumschlag; and 10 great-grandchildren.  He was also preceded in death by three grandchildren, Christine O’Connor, and Adam & Brian Sheeran, six brothers and three sisters.

Orland honorably served his country beginning at the age of 15 in the Merchant Marines and continued his service in the U.S. Army during both WWII and the Korean Conflict, for which we are forever a grateful nation.  He was a member of the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Fostoria. He enjoyed working on the family farm, raising the farm animals and working in the garden. He also made homemade wine, loved to play horseshoes and play cards, as well as watch his favorite western shows.  Orland had been a football coach for the Tri-County Raiders, renovated countless homes over the years, and retiring from Atlas Crankshaft in 1990, he loved spending time with his family.

Visitation will be held from 2-8 p.m. on Friday, February 3, 2017 at MANN-HARE-HOENING Funeral Home, 407 N. Countyline St. Fostoria.  Funeral services will begin in the funeral home at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Elder Steven Cain, presiding.

Please be encouraged:

For I well know what I am thinking toward you, declares Jehovah, thoughts of peace, and not of calamity, to give you a future and hope. And you will call me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you

We are also very grateful for Orland's service in the US Army, defending the freedoms yesterday that we enjoy today in our patriotic country of the red, white and blue. Now and in the days ahead, may Jesus our Jehova-God hold you all in the palm of His hand as you remember and celebrate his life legacy. We have found these words of our Lord in song to bring us much hope and encouragement and we share: 'Be not afraid. I go before you always. Come, follow Me, and I will give you rest'.
