Janet Reid 

Janet Reid Manegold

Passed away peacefully, with her family by her side on October 9, 2016, age 94 years. Beloved wife of the late Gilbert W. Cherished mother of Gilbert S. Manegold, Lynn (Jeffrey) Ollswang, and the late Kent W. Manegold. Further survived by grandchildren, great-grandchildren, other relatives and friends.

Janet was a long-time resident of Wauwatosa. After her husband passed away, she moved to Sarasota, FL – eventually moving to Los Angeles, CA to be close to her son, Gilbert. Wanting to have her entire family nearby, Janet, along with her son Gilbert, made one more move to the Milwaukee area last year.

We remember some of the “wacky” times in FL and WI and were happy to share some of those memories with Janet in May when we visited. It was like the old days–she was full of p.. and vinegar and even did some singing and got a few good “digs” toward me.
