James Janisch, 93, of Sul­phur Springs, died Aug. 21, 2016, at his home.

He was born as Har­ri­son Fred Janisch in Omaha , Neb., Sept. 3, 1923, to Fred M. Janisch and Irene Pet­ty­grove Janisch. He grad­u­ated from high school in Ox­ford, Neb., in 1941. Af­ter work­ing at Dou­glas Air­craft in Long Beach, Calif., and Cal­i­for­nia Ship­build­ing in San Pe­dro, Calif., he at­tended Wil­liam Jewell Col­lege, Lib­erty Mo., be­fore join­ing the self-sup­port­ing Chris­tian com­mu­nity called Shiloh in Sher­man, NY. He be­came known as James Janisch and was oc­cu­pied for a time as herds­man on the com­mu­nity farm and later a cake dec­o­ra­tor in the newly form­ing bak­ery. Af­ter the demise of the com­mu­nity’s founder, Rev. E. Crosby Mon­roe, and the sub­se­quent pass­ing of his son and suc­ces­sor, Pas­tor Ray­mond C. Mon­roe, in 1962, James be­came the pas­tor of the Shiloh Com­mu­nity. Dur­ing that time and un­der his lead­er­ship, the com­mu­nity of Shiloh and all of its busi­ness in­ter­ests, in­clud­ing Shiloh Farms, were moved in 1968 to Sul­phur Springs. In 1972, the Church of Shiloh was es­tab­lished, John Press­nall be­came Janisch’s as­so­ci­ate pas­tor. James’ pas­sion was teach­ing and shar­ing his love for the Lord Je­sus Christ and the need for all mankind to know him.

He was pre­ceded in death by his first wife, Au­drey Neebe Janisch.

He is sur­vived by his wife of 37 years, Anna Lee Se­vak Janisch; a foster daugh­ter, Marcy and hus­band Har­ris Steele, of Sul­phur Springs; one brother, Fred and wife Donna Janisch, of Cal­i­for­nia; two sis­ters, Ruth Karen and hus­band Keith Bradley of Nebraska, and Ann Louise and hus­band Gerald Eller of Ari­zona; one brother-in-law, Steve Se­vak and wife Patty of Sul­phur Springs.

A me­mo­rial ser­vice was held Sept. 3, at Ramoth, 700 Lodge Dr., Sul­phur Springs, with Steve Se­vak of­fi­ci­at­ing. Cre­ma­tion ar­range­ments were by Cal­li­son-Lough Funeral Home of Ben­tonville.
