She was born Dec. 3, 1924, in Darke County, Ohio. She passed at 97 years, 8 months, and 20 days. She was a member of the Old Brethren German Baptist Church, to which faith she held faithful to the end.

She was united in marriage on Jan. 22, 1944, to Herman D. Brumbaugh. To this union was born four children. Their early married life was spent in Darke Co., Ohio. Later in the year of 1970, they moved to their home in rural Carroll County, near Camden.

Jude and Marilee Oswalt; six sisters, Dorothy and Gene Ewing, Edith and Fred Flora, Martha and Ezra Brumbaugh, May and Lloyd Flora, Ruth and Charles Diehl, and Annie and David Grim; and a daughter-in-law, Kellie Brumbaugh.
