Janet M. Weinbauer was born Feb. 25, 1937 in Plymouth, Wis., the second daughter of Henry E. and Viola (Heckenliable) Meyer and died Sunday, Aug. 11, 2013, at Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center following a brief illness.

The memorial service to celebrate her life will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 31, with visitation from 9 a.m. until the time of service at Redeemer Lutheran Church with the Rev. Jim Wilson officiating. Burial of the cremains will be at Woodlawn Cemetery immediately following the service. A luncheon at the church will follow.

Janet was baptized and raised in First Congregational Church and graduated from Plymouth High School in 1955. She was active in both Job’s Daughters Bethel 45 and Loyalty Chapter 118 Order of the Eastern Star.

She married Joseph Weinbauer on Aug. 20, 1955. They had four children: Rev. Wanda (Rev. Paul) Veldman, Pittsville; Joseph (Colleen Sheahan), Rhinelander; James (Laurie Miller), Greenbush; and Wendy (Bryan) Lueck, Greenbush.

Janet’s creativity and imagination were abounding. She loved to travel, cook for her family, and paint in the style of the impressionist school. She was an accomplished seamstress, an avid reader, and an entertaining storyteller who could always make us laugh. A talented musician and singer, Janet was part of the Crystal Collection barbershop quartet who were International Harmony Queens 1981- 82; Plymouth SECAP community choir, Chord-A-Lettes, and most recently active in the church choir at Redeemer Lutheran.

The majority of Janet’s career was with Sargento Foods Inc. (1968-98) where she served in various capacities, including: secretary, administrative assistant, computer programmer/operator, and finally, sales coordinator in the Food Service Division.

Janet is survived by her special friend, Vern Halle; her children and six grandchildren: Hilary Constable and Elizabeth Constable, Esq.; Joshua and Jared Weinbauer; Taylor and Bryce Lueck; and sisters, Mary Ann Woods (David Houser), Arizona, and Diane Daebler (Don), Tennessee. Having lived most of her life in Plymouth, Janet leaves behind many relatives and special friends.

Her family would like to thank the ICU staff at Aurora, especially Dr. David Phelen, for their care and compassion.
