Janet Bradley, 80, of New Berlin WI, passed away peacefully on February 2, 2022 at Zilbur Hospice, Wauwatosa. She was born July 28, 1941 in Milwaukee, WI, to Michael and Helen Schroeder.  She married William Bradley on October 21, 1961.

Jan spent her early years at home raising her three sons and operating her own hair salon.  After the boys had grown, Jan spent the rest of her career working for Liturgical Publications, Managed Health Services and Walgreens.  Her passion was cooking. She spent hours upon hours crafting her favorite recipes and mastering meals of all kinds.  She made sure no one ever left her home with an empty stomach.  She loved sleepovers with her grandchildren and treating them with mini pancakes in the morning.

Jan was a devoted, loving wife and mother. She is survived by three children, Jeffery (Dauri) of East Troy, Richard of New Berlin, Thomas (Tammy) of Janesville; proud grandmother of 11 grandchildren, Christopher, Samantha, Stephanie, Rebecca, Hanna, Steven, Emily, Taylor, Jacob and Katie; great-grandmother of Layla, Remy and Karsyn; three sisters, Mary Goralski, Judy (Robert) Brandt and Carol (Norb) Lipensky.  She was preceded in death by her husband William and granddaughter Pamela.

Visitation and Service will be held Thursday, February 24, 2022, at Holy Apostles Church, 16000 W. National Ave, New Berlin, WI 53151. Visitation is 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. followed by the mass at 12:00 p.m.

Special thanks to nursing and supporting staff at Aurora Zilbur Hospice for providing her loving care over her last days.

    Dear Jeff, Dick, Tom and families,
    I was so sorry to hear the news of Auntie Janet passing away. She always made me feel so welcome in her home. I’ll never forget her terrific hugs and that contagious laugh. I’m guessing there is a Bradley shindig going on in heaven to welcome her.
    With deepest sympathy,
