Janet L. (Myers) Glaunert, age 80, of Independence, Wis., died on Saturday, April 28, 2018, as the result of a primary brain tumor. Janet was born September 15, 1937, to Vern and Helen (Gamroth) Myers. Janet was the second youngest of six children. She was raised in Independence and grew up on her Uncle Roman Skroch’s pheasant farm where she enjoyed the many advantages of a rural upbringing. Janet graduated from Independence High School in 1955 and soon after (on their first date) said “yes” to Zigmund Glaunert’ s proposal of marriage. Zig and Janet celebrated 48 years of marriage together. Janet was forever proud of her children, Randy (Lori), Terri Allen and Rick (Grace); her beautiful granddaughters, Caitlin Allen and Samantha Glaunert; her special step-grandchildren, Casey (Brett) Serum and Shane (Lacy) Larson and step-great grandchildren, Tyson and Teghan Serum. Janet’s generous nature was reflected through the contributions of her time and talents to the Rainbow Homemaker’s Club (of which she was a founding member) and as a volunteer for the Tri-County Memorial Hospital Guild. Janet also worked as a Customer Service Representative at Tri-County Telephone Cooperative; was a member of SS Peter and Paul Catholic Church and the Rosary Society, and she was a bailiff for the Trempealeau County Courthouse. Janet is survived by her loving siblings, Jean Wozney, William (Sheila), and Patrick (Karen) Myers. Janet is also survived by sisters-in-law Mary Myers, Beverly Myers, and Arlene Myers; many loving nieces and nephews, and numerous wonderful friends. Janet was preceded in death by her husband; two brothers, Robert and Roger Myers; sister-in-law, Melissa Troke; and brothers-in-law Kenneth Troke, Raymond Wozney, and Marcel Dejno. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30 a.m. Monday, May 7, 2018 at SS. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Independence, with burial in the church cemetery. Visitation will be held from 4-8 p.m. Sunday, with a prayer service at 7:30 p.m., followed by a rosary, at Edison Funeral Home, Independence, and one hour prior to the Mass at the church on Monday. If desired, the family suggests memorials be given to the Rainbow Community Club’s community improvement fund at: N36794 Gierok Rd., Independence, WI 54747 Blessings to the neuro-oncology staff of the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn., and the Kansas University Hospital, Kansas City, Kan.; St. Croix Hospice, Eau Claire, Wis., and especially the physicians, nurses, and aides at Chippewa Valley Hospital, Durand, Wis., for their professional and compassionate care during Janet’s end of life.
