MOHLER, Glen Eugene
Age 80, of Covington, son of David & Martha (Flora) Mohler, was born August 4, 1933, in Covington, Ohio. He departed this life peacefully at home in the early morning hours of September 28, 2013. As a young man he responded in faith to the call of the Lord Jesus Christ and was baptized on October 8, 1950. At the time of his passing he was a member of the Old German Baptist Brethren Church, New Conference, Sugar Grove district. On January 6, 1952, he was united in marriage with Lois Jean Miller, daughter of Forrest & Amy Miller. They enjoyed 61 years together, many of those serving side by side caring for their parents at different times and finally many years of caring for their son Curtis, disabled with a head injury. In the beginning years of their marriage, they served two years of C.O. service in Elyria, Ohio, and then made their residence near Covington. Glen worked 42 years as an electrician, and then spent several years working for a home builder. In the later years of his life, Glen was diagnosed with Parkinsonís disease. As his abilities diminished, he rarely, if ever, complained. He was also privileged to receive the peace and joy of an anointing service. He is survived by his wife Lois Jean; daughter Diane Mohler; son and daughter-in-law Randy & Diane Mohler; granddaughters Holly & Trent Eikenberry and their children Carter, Jade, Will, Ty, and Violet; Nicki & Casey Clawson and their children Kyra and Brant; sister Virginia (Okey) Bowman of Rocky Mount, VA; brother J.D. (Gay) Mohler of Lakeland Florida, and many nieces and nephews.

We have been blessed with many fond memories and cherish them. God is so faithful and He has abundantly supplied all of our needs. We rejoice in the loving care of our heavenly Father, as we anticipate a heavenly home free from the sorrows of life and filled with fullness of joy in His presence. Blessed be the name of the Lord. The family would like to thank the nurses at Hospice of Miami County and Vitas Hospice for the care given to Glen during his illness.
