MANSFIELD: Janice Elaine Farley passed away Saturday, January 2, 2021 from OhioHealth Mansfield. She was 80.

She was born December 15, 1940 to parents Robert & Dorothy (Berry) Osburn in Ashland. Janice graduated from Madison High School, with the class of 1958.

On June 20, 1959, she married Charles B. Farley. Together they would travel across the country on Charley’s motorcycle. Destinations included Florida, Niagara Falls, and Virginia Beach. For years, the two also bowled in the mixed couples league at Park Lanes.

  • We have fond memories of being with Janice at worship at First Christian Church. My fondest memory of Janice is a gift that she gave me. I was going through chemo and she gave me a miniature nativity set with her prayers for me. Every Christmas that I put it out, I am reminded of her kindness and prayers. We will miss her. We extend to you our sincere sympathy and prayers. J Ray and Jane Mellick

  • Great grandmother to Coralene Hostetter.
    I’ll never forget how the first time we met she greeted me with a smile on her face. She spoke with a kindness that comes from years of experience.
    Sad to see her go, I enjoyed the talks and time we spent together. I wish the best for the family. As I mourn the loss of her, they lost a mother, a grandmother, and the warm soul that was Geegee Farley.
    Rest easy, you and Charlie are together again.

  • I could not have asked for a more beautiful and loving mother in law. Thank you for giving me your son. Steve is forever in my heart and so are you. I will dearly miss you…. All my love,


  • Janice(Aunt) was a wonderful lady. I will miss her dearly. She was in my life for such a longtime and I always looked forward to hearing from her on my Birthday and Christmas. She will always be in my heart.
