Rion Iris Ablon
August 30, 1934-May 9, 2021
Rion was born in New York City. An honors student and graduate of Brooklyn College, she and her husband, Hal, moved to Los Angeles in the 1950s, where she taught middle schoolers and raised two daughters, Glynis and Janel. Rion loved to travel and the theater. In her second act, she became a travel agent, allowing her to explore even more destinations, and she devoted her time to various charities, including KCET. She especially doted on her four grandchildren – who will always affectionately refer to her as Bubbe – who she helped raise.
Rion will be sorely missed by her entire family – her husband of nearly 67 years, her daughters, her sons-in-laws, and her grandchildren. She is forever beloved.
