Janet Joy Williams was born October 29, 1930 in Bowler, the daughter of the late Bernard “Ben” and Emma (Erickson) Reinert. She attended school in Iola and graduated in 1949. A few years later, Janet was united in marriage to Floyd Williams on August 4, 1951 in Clintonville, and the couple continued to reside in Iola. After Floyd returned from military service, they bought a farm in the Township of Harrison, Waupaca County, where they had horses and raised beef cattle. They later moved to Northland and lived there for 10 years, and later found themselves living back in Iola. The couple separated, and Janet moved to Buena Park, CA in 1974, and later settled in Clintonville where she has lived since. Janet found her church home at Calvary Apostolic Church, Clintonville where she was a current member. She worked at the Wal-Mart in New London, and later retired after 12 years. Janet was an excellent baker and all-around cook, and will also be remembered for her love of horses and dogs.
