Janice Brunk

August 15, 1959 — February 17, 2022


Janice Lynn Brunk, the daughter of Hubert and Louise Sponsler, was born on August 15, 1959, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She passed away to be with her heavenly Father on February 17, 2022.

Janice grew up on a farm in Mountain Grove, Missouri. When she was fifteen, her family moved to Stilwell, Oklahoma, where she became homecoming queen and graduated from Stilwell High School. After high school, she attended cosmetology school and started dating the love of her life, Billy Brunk.

She married Billy on December 22, 1978, and moved to Memphis, Tennessee, where she worked as a cosmetologist to support Billy in Optometry school. After their time in Memphis, they moved to Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri. Eventually, they settled down in Stilwell with their two sons, Matthew and Derrick. Billy and Janice started an optometry practice in Stilwell, and she served as the office manager for twenty years.

Janice was a devout Christian and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend. She was the kindest and most generous person you could know, and her impact on her family was immeasurable. Janice enjoyed decorating her home, traveling, playing games, and spending time with her grandkids. She has the fondest memories of her aunts and uncles and loved traveling back to Missouri to reminisce on a wonderful time.

Janice was preceded in death by her father Hubert Sponsler of Tulsa, and survived by her husband, Dr. Bill Brunk of Stilwell. Son Matthew Brunk and wife Cory of Stilwell; Son Derrick Brunk of Stilwell; Mother Louise Sponsler of Tulsa; Sister Jennifer and husband Greg Hewin of Broken Arrow; brother Stephen Sponsler of Mannford and grandchildren Miles, Flynn, and Marlowe Brunk of Stilwell. Janice is also survived by numerous family members and friends.
