Janet E. Ballinger
Janet E. BallingerEasternStarJanet E. Ballinger, 73 of Marysville, died unexpectedly Thursday, December 19, 2019 at her home.

She was born September 23, 1946 in Delaware to the late Francis G. and Letha M. (Ewing) Johnson.

A 1964 graduate of Richwood High School, she was a cheerleader for four years. On December 18, 1966 she married her high school sweetheart, Richard M. Ballinger, in Pharisburg. She and Rick owned and operated the Ballinger Funeral Home in Richwood and Prospect for 19 years until his death in 1988. Following that, she continued to run the funeral home for another 19 years until her retirement in 2007. During that time, she managed to single-handedly raise three children while she continued operations of the funeral home and her true passion in life: running a horse farm. Few things brought Janet as much joy as caring for her horses and dogs and cats. Even after operations of the farm business ceased, she continued to care for her ďfour-legged childrenĒ for the duration of their natural lives.

She was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Richwood. She had been active in the former Mt. Carmel Chapter 42 Order of the Eastern Star where she had served as the star point, Martha. Janet enjoyed traveling and seeing new places in her later life.

She is survived by her three children, Greg (Gina) Ballinger, Richwood; Kristen (John) Amschel Ballinger, Granville; Marcus (Erin) Ballinger, Englewood; eight grandchildren, Avery, Derek and Sienna Ballinger; Julia, Olivia, Maia and Anders Helling; and Alex Ballinger; a brother, Donald (Violet) Johnson, East Liberty; Carol Ann Butcher (Jerry Arnold), Richwood; Jeanine (Daniel) Vejil, Houston, Texas; and several nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be Monday, December 23, 2019 at 11:00 AM at the Stofcheck-Ballinger Funeral Home, Richwood †with Pastor Joe Rhea officiating. Burial will follow in Claibourne Cemetery. Friends may call on Sunday from 2 to 4 PM at the funeral home in Richwood.

Memorial gifts may be made to New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program, 3293 Wright Rd,
Laura, OH 45337 (www.horseadoption.com)

Dear Children, We are saddened at the news of your mother's passing. I am aware that she suffered these past months as did my mother. A sad and frightening struggle for ones we love. Janet, and Rick were our down-town foundation in high school, for parties, sleepovers and walking the 'mean streets' of Rockin' Richwood. Memories that stand out among us High School Sweethearts (Carla & I are ones as well) are: playing spin-the-bottle among the Ballinger caskets at a Saturday nite party; watching the moon rise on a fall sleepover (w Rick), laying on the roof adjacent to Rick's BR; watching the amazing Cheerleading energetic energy of your mother on the football field and BB court. I see her face, I feel her smile. You are blessed with her love and her memory, as are we.
