Orionoko “Noke” Orndorff, 87, passed away peacefully at her Hilliard home with family at her bedside
on Thursday morning, April 9th. Noke is preceded in death by husband of 63 years, Robert V. Orndorff.
Survived by loving son Danny Orndorff, daughter-in-law Joan Orndorff, sister Eleanor Hamilton,
grandchildren Becky Tramell, Rachel Orndorff, Daniel Orndorff and great grandson Steven Tramell. Also
survived by close in-laws James Orndorff, Anna Orndorff, Gloria Lee Orndorff, nieces Sheila Hamilton,
Marie (David) Rose, Joyce Orndorff, Marilyn Vonderhaar, Carolyn Orndorff, Diane (Roger) Adkins,
nephew Paul (Dawn) Hamilton and several great nieces.
Born to humble beginnings, Noke was raised in Hominy Falls, WV, in a hard-working community with
emphasis on family traditions and a strong faith in God. Noke displayed great humility, a strong work
ethic and genuine care in all that she did including in her successful career in the banking industry. From
her start as a teller, she advanced to branch manager positions at Ohio State Federal, Fifth Third and
Society Bank where she used these core values throughout her career until she retired from KeyBank in
1998. Noke was loved and respected by many in her life and left a positive impact on all of those she
helped. Her gift of communication and compassion enabled her to build strong relationships with
coworkers and customers whose friendships were valued throughout her life.
There will be no funeral service; a Celebration of Life will be scheduled in the future. If desired,
memorial contributions may be made to Journey Church, P.O. Box 3412, Dublin, Ohio 43016 or to
National Church Residences, 3550 Fishinger Blvd, Hilliard, Ohio 43026.
The family would like to thank the staff at National Church Residences in Mill Run and Hospice Care for
their outstanding care of Noke these last two years. She truly became one of the family there and loved
all of you for the care and compassion she was shown.
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine,
or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that
loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor
things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to
separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
