Bill and Janet raised 4 daughters: Susan (Lawrence) Meier, Jean (George) Krug, Janice Hansen, and Beth (Scott) Raymond; and 5 sons: Gary (Rachel Lee), Dean, Donn (Denise), Bruce (Amy), and Mark (Tamara) Johnson. They were blessed with 29 grandchildren: Jill, Jennifer (Tom) Flierl, Brian (Jennifer) Meier, Holly (Daniel) Bushner, Amy (Tom) Perszyk, Jason (Bekah) Meier, Laura (Joel) Rasmussen, Kristy (Douglas) Cravillion, Richard (Kristen) Tessler, Ryan (Mallory), Megan (Bryan) Kaupla, Ashley (Jake) Snyder, William (fiancée Belle), Paul (Desirae), Joel (Rachel) Hansen, Kristine (David) Franz, Joshua (Danielle Cameron), Brad (Erin), Todd (Melissa), Logan, Cole, Quinn, Piper, Haley, Ben, Brett (fiancée Ellen) Raymond, Brandon (Lydia Park) Raymond, Grace Raymond, and Madison Raymond.

A longtime member of St. John’s Ev. Lutheran Church, Janet served others on Ladies Aid, Altar Guild, and sang in the choir. She also served on the Wisconsin Lutheran High School Guild and was a strong supporter of WLHS. Grandma J was the best cook, hugger, peacemaker, and cheerleader who always had a kind word and a helping hand for everyone who needed it.
Visitation will be held on Friday, February 25, at ST. JOHN’S EV. LUTHERAN CHURCH, 6802 W. FOREST HOME AVE., from 10am – 12pm, with the funeral service to follow at 12pm. Private burial at Independent Cemetery, Oak Creek. There will be a celebration of Janet’s life at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to St. John’s Ev. Lutheran Church, Wisconsin Lutheran High School, or Alzheimer’s Association.
The family would like to thank the caregivers at Ellen’s Home in Germantown for their exceptional, compassionate care.
Janet’s devotion to her family and friends, her abiding faith, and her willingness to help others was a shining example to all who knew her.
And now these three remain: Faith, Hope, Love, but the greatest of these is Love. 1 Corinthians 13:13
