Janet Louise Albaugh Birch, 79, of Wheeling, WV, died on December 25, 2023. She was born on July 12, 1944, in Wheeling.

She was preceded in death by her father, Harold Albaugh, mother, Nancy Albaugh Tofaute (Henry), brothers James and Robert Albaugh, son-in-law Patrick Jones and grandson, Josiah Titus-Glover.

Janet is survived by her daughters Deborah Jones and Michelle (Philip) Titus-Glover; seven grandchildren: Christopher, Caleb, Sean (Cara Lena), Jeannah, and Ryleigh Jones and Gideon and Hadassah Titus-Glover; loving sisters-in-law Sue Albaugh and Mavis Albaugh; as well as many other family members and friends.

Janet deeply loved God, her family and her friends. She loved playing cards, watching football and spending time with the people she loved.

Janet read the obituaries every day and joked that, “I need to see if my name is in there.” Today, we read them for you and found your name.

Janet wouldn’t want you to send flowers or plant trees in her memory. In lieu of those, she would want you to spend that money on activities that let you enjoy time with your family and friends: go out to lunch, go on a trip, watch a football game together, get some DiCarlos pizza, or whatever else you like to do with the people you love.

A memorial mass will be held on Saturday, January 20 at noon at St. Michael Catholic Church in Wheeling, followed by burial at Greenwood Cemetery and a reception at the Angelus Center at St Michael Church.

Memories and condolences may be shared with the family on this page.

My condolences, Michelle, to you and your family on the death of your mother. Although we knew each other a short time, we liked that we had the same name and a bond of understanding and caring for people with similar personal challenges. Heaven is enriched with her there.

I used to visit with Janet, she’d ask me to pray an entire rosary with her or even just one mystery of the holy rosary. She was such a lovely lady. A real joy. God bless you and your family during this time of our loss, but heaven’s joy.
