JoAnn Buhlinger, 84, Owensville, passed away Sunday, August 29, 2021, at her home. She was born on July 8, 1937, to Sylvester and Lela (Turpin) Weber in St. Louis.

She was united in marriage to Charles Buhlinger on November 24, 1956, in Hernando, Miss. She was educated through the 8th grade until working full-time prior to becoming a homemaker where she raised six children and helped raise a multitude of grandchildren in her loving home.

JoAnn lived her life serving others. She loved nothing more than being surrounded by those she held near and dear at heart. JoAnn was the “Shepherd” of her family flock and all who loved her viewed her as their best friend. She was a confidant also to many, and supported everyone she knew with love and kindness, including strangers. She was one of the strongest souls to ever exist and earned the nickname “Superwoman” during her battle with cancer. JoAnn enjoyed cooking everyone’s favorite meals for her large family. She was a master at Candy Crush as she played each evening. Her favorite holiday was Black Friday, an annual shopping day with her girls, filled with fun and laughter for all. She had a giving and generous heart of gold and will be missed abundantly.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Charles Buhlinger, the love of her life for 63 years of marital bliss; parents, three sisters, and two brothers. Her survivors include six children, Debbie Buhlinger of Owensville, Tricia Reel and husband Steve, Jeffrey Buhlinger and wife Dana, all of Gerald, Kevin Buhlinger and girlfriend Linda Beauchaine, of St. Louis, Laura Livell of Rosebud, and Shelly Wehmeyer and husband Phil of Jefferson City; thirteen grandchildren, Melissa Beste and husband Jeremy, Carrie Krupp and husband Adam, Jason Wenkel and wife Shannon, Kristina Pfister and husband Bill, Jessica Buhlinger, Justin Buhlinger and wife Amanda, Nick Buhlinger and wife Brittany, Anna Buhlinger, Allison Shelton and husband Jacob, AJ Livell, Sydney and Mia Wehmeyer; and sixteen great-grandchildren, Austin Mayberry and wife Kelia, Seth Mayberry and girlfriend Gracie, Olivia Beste, Khai and Kambria Krupp, Alexus Wenkel, Desi, Nic, and Datan Binkhoelter, Michael Cook, Charles and Iris Buhlinger, Mikayla and Maddy Kladky, Odin Buhlinger, and Adrianna Petford; great great-granddaughter, Brynlee Mayberry; one sister; multiple nieces and nephews and friends.
