Janice M. Sutherland (nee Forberger)
West Allis - Jan was a strong woman who fought her pulmonary fibrosis and heart disease in a tough battle. She made it successfully through 4 heart procedures-stents and valve placement-in the past 2 months, before she was called to rest at peace with the Lord on February 14, 2021 at the age of 78 years. She was a hard working woman; working at Pick N Save/Roundy's for over 20 years in various departments, assembling holiday boxes at Usinger's in the freezer 3rd shift over the winter for several years, and using her creativity as a floral designer almost all of her life all the way back to Abbey's Flower Nook in Capitol Court. She designed flowers for multiple special events and weddings, including her children's weddings. She always hosted family gatherings and was sure to remember all birthdays and anniversaries. Her most important job in life was taking care of others. She cared for many family members in their later years, including most recently caring for her late husband Jerry as long as she possibly could. She was a good mom to 3 boys, Jeff (Jeaneen), Brian (Mary), and Greg (Marilyn) Teschendorf, and one daughter Kimberly (Bob) Bohmann.
