She was preceded in death by her parents; stepbrothers Mike Peak and Scott Hoopes; and brother-in-law Donnie Kirk.

Janet’s family, including her dogs, were a big part of her life. She enjoyed motorcycle riding and all the friends she made doing so. Janet was active in her community and also enjoyed working at Theisen’s helping people, gardening, humming birds, and the outdoors. Her favorite spot was the Big Cat Rescue in Rock Springs, WI.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the family.
