Beres

Jane L. Beres, R.N.

Jane Louise Beres, 91, of Milwaukee went to her reward on April 10, 2012. She was born to Margaret and Elvin Strommen on February 14, 1921. Jane married William Beres on May 31, 1946 and that union lasted 60 years until Bill’s passing in 2006. Jane became a registered nurse in 1943 and maintained her license for 65 years, working until she was 87. She was very proud to be part of a tight-knit group of professional women who, beginning in the late 1960’s, made Hillview Nursing Home a very respected and highly sought after elder care facility.

Jane’s focus was always her family. She is survived by her children Bill (Dorie) Beres, Susan (Lee) Olver and Sally Noldin; grandchildren Leah (Brian) Wyland, Bill Mike (Sara) Beres, Lauren Olver, Nicole (Craig) Mirr, and Jennifer Noldin; and her great grandchildren Olivia, Elizabeth and Audrey Wyland. She is further survived by her niece Carolyn (Marty) Lemens, sister-in-law Betty Beres, and many other nieces, nephews, grand nieces and grand nephews. In addition to her parents and husband, Jane was preceded in death by her sister Ruth (Harold) Thorsen and numerous brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law whom she fondly remembered for the wonderful family they were.

Jane’s wishes were to be cremated without services. There will be a gathering of friends and family to honor her memory, date to be determined.

My mom and your momwere good friends along with your aunt, Betti Meier and a few other ladies. I think they had a “sewing club” years ago but I’m not sure how much sewing they actually did. I also remember going to Lake Beulah with all of us kids and the moms. Your mom always packed the healthy stuff and my mom had the snacks and soda. Ah, the good old days. Fond memories of your mom and your family. My mom-Bernice Boeck. Please accept my sympathy. What a great life, I am a nurse but doubt if I will work into my 80’s!!!
