Janet Mae was born Aug. 15, 1935, in Walnut Lake Township, Faribault County, the daughter of William E. and G. Bernice (Dulas) Warmka. She attended Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic School through the eighth grade and graduated from Wells High School in 1953. After high school, she attended and graduated from beauty school. Janet was united in marriage to Clement Schultz on Oct. 6, 1956, at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church in Easton. To this union, two sons were born and one daughter adopted in love. Janet was an excellent homemaker and lovingly raised her family. She loved to bake and dreamt of working in the Betty Crocker test kitchen. She had fun playing cards and going out with her many dear friends. Janet also enjoyed entertaining, always keeping her cupboards and freezer stocked, and ensuring nobody ever left her home hungry.
She was an active and faithful member of St. Casimir Church and School. She thoroughly enjoyed working with the children at St. Casimir Catholic School as a teacher aide for over 35 years, where she helped many, many children. Janet was a generous and faith-filled woman, who loved her children immensely. Janet was a wonderful grandmother, who loved and enjoyed her “little people” — her grandchildren, their spouses and her great-grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her parents; mother and father-in-law John A. and Mary C. Schultz; husband, Clem, in 2008; grandson, Jason Schultz; brothers Robert, Gary and Bryan “Bud” Warmka; sisters-in-law Mary Warmka and Sue Warmka; and brothers-in-law Phillip Schultz, Steven Horvat and James Laxen.
