Janice Sue Filbrun daughter of James T. and Bernice (Austin) Oyler, was born August 14, 1943 in Clinton County, Indiana. She departed this life June 1, 2012 in an auto accident at the age of 68 years, 9 months, and 18 days.
Realizing the need of a Savior, she was baptized on November 30, 1958 into the Old German Baptist Brethren Church to which she remained faithful. During previous illnesses she received much comfort from the anointing services.
She was united in marriage on June 25, 1961 to Marlin E. Filbrun the son of Floyd and Mary Filbrun. This union was blessed with five daughters and two sons: Carol and Mark Garber of New Madison, Ohio, Yvonne and Philip Bower of Greenville, Ohio, Aurelia and Ryan Davison of Garnett, Kansas, Colleen and Steve Skiles of Union City, Ohio, Rachel and Daniel Garber of Englewood, Ohio, Arlin and Elizabeth Filbrun of Lewisburg, Ohio, Harlen and Kristy Filbrun of Lewisburg, Ohio.
At seventeen years of age Janice moved from Indiana to Ohio.
In 1973 she moved to Brazil with her husband, children, and other family. Three and one half years later she moved back to Ohio for the remainder of her life.
She was preceded in death by both of her parents. Left to mourn her passing are her loving husband of nearly fifty one years, all of her previously named children, two sisters and one brother: Michele and William Brubaker, Nancy and Dennis Flora, and James A. and Donna Oyler. Also left are thirty-one grandchildren, eleven great grandchildren, and many other relatives and friends.
