Janet S. (Linxwiler) Oliver, 81, of Oakland City, passed away Friday, August 4, 2023 at Good Samaritan Home and Rehab Center in Oakland City. She was born September 29, 1941 in Princeton, to the late Earl L. Linxwiler and Sophie (Critchfield) Linxwiler and graduated from high school in Mt. Olympus. Janet worked for Hansen Manufacturing for the majority of her working life, briefly at Hurst Manufacturing, and then at IGA in the flower department.
