Janice was a social woman who loved to talk and tell stories. Her abundance of spirit, spunky personality and endless energy shined thru in everything she did. She strongly valued her Catholic faith and the time she spent with friends and family. Janice loved children especially babies and was known as “Cookie Grandma” to her grandchildren, which was a name given to her for carrying on her grandmother’s tradition of always having the cookie jar full.

Janice enjoyed knitting slippers, collecting Beanie Babies, fishing with her husband Wally in Door County, watching the Packers and Badgers, cooking and baking. Her pies and turkey dinners were a favorite. Janice was proud of the many jobs she has held throughout the years some of which included waitressing, working at the Ozaukee County Jail, Sears catalog, laboratory aid at the hospital in Port Washington and providing childcare.
Janice is survived by her children: Susan Asherman of Milwaukee, Michael (Naoe) Streff of Tampa Bay, Florida, Patrick (Debbie) Streff of Conover, Peter Streff of Port Washington, Wendy (Rick) Harmon of West Bend, grandchildren: Monica Thein, Stephanie Streff, Candice Streff, Kelly Streff, Brian Streff, Tory Harmon, Whitney Harmon, Morgan (Steven) Kluck, Luke Streff, Jessie Streff, Gabrielle Parmentier, great-grandchildren: Jacob, Hope, Ava, Julian, Wolfgang, Rufio, Elinor, Moses, Hawker and Cru, sister Marie Krepsky, sisters-in-law Renee Streff and Betty Leak.
