She is survived by her husband of 14 years, Charles W. “Chuck” Philabaum; her son, Charles W. “C.J.” Philabaum Jr.; her mother and father; three sisters, Joyce J. Dillingham of Terre Haute, Mary K. Linne of Kentucky, and Tammy L. Davis of Brazil; two brothers, Steve A. Shapland Jr. and Michael Johnson, both of Terre Haute; her “Big Sister” of 26 years, Betsy and Greg Kelson of Colorado; and her special friends, Paul and Jamie Markle of Terre Haute.  She also is survived by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, and friends.

A memorial service will be held Sunday, April 14, 2013, at 4 p.m. at Second Christian Church, 410 8th Ave., in Terre Haute, with Elder Ted Bradburn officiating.  Visitation will be from 2 p.m. until service time on Sunday.
