Ila Orwig Obituary

Ila Marie Orwig, 76, of Ionia, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and sister-in-law passed into heaven on March 28, 2023.

Ila was born on February 16, 1947 to Kenneth and Lorraine (Hillard) Boroff Slocum. She graduated from Ionia High School with her class of 1966. Shortly after her graduation she began a career working in the Ionia Public School System for 39 years. Ila married Walter Orwig, Sr. on October 20, 1973.

Ila was a very active member of Shiloh Community Church, being involved in their teen bike trips cooking for everyone, helping with cooking church dinners, filling Operation Christmas Shoe Boxes, making blankets and many other areas of ministry. Some of the things that brought pleasure to her life, besides family, were painting, woodworking with her husband, knitting, and crafts. One of her greatest pleasures was being a volunteer at Wheatland Festivals for many years working on Kids Hill doing crafts, stenciling, and quilting.

Surviving are her sons, Richard (Donna) Orwig of Sheridan and Walter Orwig, Jr. (Crystal); brothers, Bruce (Kay) Boroff of Ionia and Keith Boroff of Belding; brother-in-law, Andrew Munschy of Ionia; stepsister, Lauretta (Robert) Chambless of Holland; and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nephews, and nieces.

Preceding her in death are her parents, Kenneth and Lorraine Boroff; husband, Walter Orwig, Sr.; sister, Anne Munschy; brother, Terry Boroff; and sister-in-law, Jean Boroff.
