Kathy was born March 10, 1958 to Raymond & Lois (Robatcek) Schueller. She attended Sacred Heart Elementary School and Sauk Rapids Junior & Senior High Schools. Kathy graduated from St. Cloud State University with an Elementary Education Degree, Reading Degree and Kindergarten Endorsement. She taught at Sacred Heart Elementary for 29 years until becoming disabled in the fall of 2010. Kathy married the love of her life, Bernie Janson on Aug., 1, 1981. They lived and farmed in the Mayhew Lake area and were blessed with three wonderful children, Andy, Joe and Sarah. She was an active member of Annunciation Catholic Church where she was a member of the Liturgy Committee, Communion Minister, St. John's Group, taught preschool for 10 years, helped with decorating the parish environment, volunteered to co-write Mass introductions, prayers and petitions, and baked bread with Confirmation students every Holy Thursday. Kathy enjoyed teaching, farming, being outdoors, gardening, bird watching, reading, crafts, and being active in her parish community. Her special love was spending time with Bernie, their children, her "special seven", family and friends.
Kathy was an ordinary and extraordinary woman. Everybody who was privileged enough to meet her felt loved and respected. Her face was always radiant with joy. She was pure love and goodness and she generously and devotedly poured out her love to her family, her God, and her many friends who meant the world to her. Her legacy of love, faith and generosity will live on in all of them.
