Carol Jane œJan  Hider of Wooster went home to be with her Lord and Savior on April 13, 2022.  
She was born April 17, 1934, in Mount Eaton, Ohio, the daughter of Bryan and Bessie (Kenwell) Kreiling and graduated from Jeromesville High School, finishing her education at Wooster Business College.
She was married March 26, 1960, to Richard Hider at the Wooster Trinity United Church of Christ officiated by Dr. Leo Kiel.   Their children became members of Trinity as well.   Richard and Jan were married for 53 years prior to Richard ™s death in August 2013.
For several years before having children, Jan worked as a secretary for Attorneys Marion F. Graven and George Barnard in Wooster.   She also served as secretary to the Local Young Republicans.   She was a member of Damacus White Shrine and Floralynn Garden Club.   Later in life, for about 25 years, she worked as a volunteer in the household department of People-to-People Ministries.
Jan was also very active in gardening and flower arranging which included memberships in the Ohio Association of Garden Clubs, American Flower Arrangers Guild, Judges Guild of Kingwood Center, and was a former OAGC accredited judge.
She served as OAGC Region 14 Publicity Chairman, OAGC Region 14 Flower Show Chairman and was a two-term State Secretary of the Ohio Association of Garden Clubs under Presidents Nadine Elder of Warsaw and Kate Pond of Doylestown.
She was known for her love of Period, Moribana and Modern Flower arranging and flower gardening.
Jan was an avid reader of various biographies and fictional literature by Pearl Buck.
She adored impressionistic art, with a particular fondness for Monet and Renoir.   When it came to TV and film, time-period shows, like Downton Abbey, were some of her favorites.  
She loved listening to ragtime music, such as by Scott Joplin.   One of her favorite musicians was Elton John, especially his song œCandle in the Wind. .   She was particularly moved when listening to the song œToo Beautiful to Last  by Englebert Humperdinck.   Her favorite childhood song, which later reminded her of her mother when they went to church, was œLove Lifted Me. 
Jan enjoyed travel with her favorite two trips being Switzerland and Ireland.
As an animal lover she always had a cat or two in the house.   Additionally, she cared for many outdoor feathered and furry friends.  
She is survived by her son Eric Richard Hider of Wooster, daughter Julie Maria (David) Ellis of Hilliard, Ohio, and brother Ronald D.(Betty) Kreiling of Jeromesville.
