Obituary for John D. Mohrman

John D. Mohrman, 92, died Wednesday, June 19 at Otterbein Portage Valley following a brief illness.

John was born in Germany on September 28, 1926. He came to the United States when he was 18 months old. The family briefly lived in New York City before moving to Woodville, Ohio where John spent his entire life farming. In 2005, he revisited Ellis Island to see his name on the American Immigrant Wall of Honor.
John was a farmer until his final day. He loved working the land and being outdoors. If you didn't find him in the field, he was working on a project in his shop. He loved everything German and visited his homeland several times. John and his wife enjoyed traveling and polka dancing. They volunteered for many years at the German-American Festival in Oregon, working at the Import House. He loved his family and German food! His grandkids enjoyed helping him in the field -- bailing hay, feeding cattle and other chores. In recent years, John loved spending time with his K9 companion, Buddy.

John was active in the community, serving 12 years as a Woodville Township Trustee. He was an active member of the Sandusky County Pork Producers and Woodville Kiwanis. John was also a member of GBU, participating in many of the club's activities at Oak Shade Grove.

John married Alice Lusk on April 24, 1948. They had two children, Ann and Jim. He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Marie (Muller) Mohrman and his wife, Alice, who died on April 24, 2005. He was also preceded in death by his son-in-law, Bill Ott and brother, Hank Mohrman.

John is survived by children Ann Ott of Archbold and Jim (Sandy) Mohrman of Woodville and grandchildren Jonathan (Heidi) Cook of Perrysburg, Jeffrey Cook of Archbold, Jamie (Amy) Mohrman of Woodville and Sarah (Terry Rhoads) Mohrman of Clyde. John has five great-grandchildren: Tyler (Cassidy), Daniel, Ashton and Curtis Cook of Perrysburg. The most recent addition is James Mohrman, JR of Woodville.
