Ms. Gehrke was born on October 25, 1953 in Norwalk, OH to Mr. Joe Hillman and Mrs. Merry (Robinson) Hillman. Prior to her passing, she worked at Michael’s as an arts & crafts instructor.
She is survived by her son, Mr. Jay Myers of Dallas, Georgia; her granddaughters, Alyvia Myers and Kellie Myers, both of Dallas, Georgia; her sister, Mrs. Iris Riley of Norwalk, Ohio; her brother, Mr. Terry Hillman of Phoenix, Arizona; many other friends and relatives survive.
Jann will forever be remembered for her loving and giving nature. She enjoyed being outside, whether it be planting flowers, tending to her gardens or watching wildlife. She was an avid bird watcher and always kept track of what birds would be around no matter the time of year. She made many friends over the years from Ohio all the way to Georgia. One such friend is Marty Long, of Norwalk, Ohio, who over the past 40+ years has remained close through the best and worst of times.
Ms. Gehrke has been cremated.
