Janet was born on July 10, 1931 in Milwaukee, WI to Edward L. and Eleanor K. Dearsley. She was baptized into Jesus Christ as an infant and confirmed in her faith as a youth. On August 19, 1950, she was joined in marriage with James Adams. Two children were born from this marriage: Mark E. Adams and Kathleen Raychel. Her beloved husband, Jim was called home on March 26, 1991 and is awaiting Jan’s arrival. Along with being a “Mom”, Jan found time to work for 30 years as the secretary at Wauwatosa West High School; share her time and talents in service to her Lord through her church; and found great joy in the birth and lives of her 5 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
