George J. Wilber, of Oscoda, formerly of St. Charles, passed away peacefully at Iosco County Medical Care Facility on Sunday, October 21, 2018, age 83 years. George was born on March 21, 1935 to George L. and Louise J. (Lea) Wilber. He married his wife Janice (McLaughlin) on October 1, 1955 in Saginaw and together they celebrated 63 years of marriage!
