Jayanna Marie Wiblitzhouser

November 29, 1965 — November 7, 2022

Mrs. Jayanna Marie (Hurst) Wiblitzhouser, age 56, of Newport, NC, went to be with the Lord after battling a lengthy illness at Duke Hospital on November 7th, 2022.

Mrs. Wiblitzhouser was born in Durham, NC on November 29th, 1965, to the late William Julius Hurst Jr. and Patsy Ruth (Ward) Hurst.

She is survived by her husband, Bruce Wiblitzhouser of Newport, NC; two daughters, Melissa Dassas, husband Wesley of Havelock, NC and Erika Wiblitzhouser of Newport, NC; one son, Kenneth Wiblitzhouser of Newport, NC; two stepchildren, Dustin Wiblitzhouser, wife Chris of Maryland and April Wollak, husband Ben of Wendell, NC. She is also survived by her two brothers, Carlton Hurst Sr., wife Kay of Franklinton, NC and Donnie Hurst, wife Brenda of Apex, NC; one sister, Patsy (Hurst) Ashley, husband Wiley of Cedar Point, NC; and three grandchildren, Olivia, Maliyah and Novalynn.

She enjoyed gardening, crafts and searching for shells on the beach. Her Lord and Savior, family, children, and grandchildren were her whole life and that began with her Mama and Daddy, whom she loved with her whole heart and learned what unconditional love truly meant. She always put others needs before her own, even through her toughest battles.

A graveside service will be held 11:00 a.m., Monday, November 14, 2022 at Oak Grove Memorial Gardens in Durham, NC.

Our family would also like to express our thanks and gratitude to Duke Hospital for the wonderful care that she received throughout the last five years of her battle with cancer.
