Ashville OH- Ona Jean (Lozier) Estep, 72 of Ashville, OH passed away peacefully on Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at Mount Carmel Hospital in Grove City. She experienced some health issues this year, but one would not know because she never complained a day in her life. She was born on October 5, 1948 to the late Mildred and Alonzo Lozier.
The most beautiful thing you can leave behind is your legacy and she did just that. She was the sweetest soul and her love for others was an inspiration. She treated everyone like family and all were welcome in her home. She was the most kind and generous person, giving beyond her means. If someone else needed something, she would give to them without thinking of herself.
Ona cherished her family photos, enjoyed thrift shopping and had a passion for cleaning. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were her pride and joy. (Her words) She thoroughly enjoyed the many years she spent caring for patients at Alum Crest Nursing Home. In recent years, she took pride in cleaning homes for clients who became family to her. She attended Lockbourne CCCU.
Ona will be deeply missed by those left to cherish her memory, her loving husband of 34 years, Johnny Estep; daughters Sherri Lynn Rhodes, Debbie (Jesse Morris) Rhodes; grandchildren Calvin, Tosha, Ryan and Curtis; numerous great grandchildren; brothers Lonnie (Diana) Lozier and Ronnie Lozier (Robbin Dudley); sister Cheryl Blackburn; her special cousin Jayne; many nieces, a nephew and a host of other family, friends and loving pets Archie and Angel. _
In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her sister Inez Collins; father-in-law Edd Estep and sister-in-law Sherry Bruzzese.
