Janet M. Wolfert

Jun 22, 1938 - Mar 04, 2022


Janet M. Wolfert, age 83, of Plymouth, Wisconsin and Bonita Springs, Florida, went to her heavenly home to be reunited with her beloved husband John. Janet passed away peacefully in Fort Myers, Florida after complications from surgery.

Janet was born June 22, 1938, in Sheboygan to the late Elmer and Ella (Schmitt) Hermann. She graduated from Central High School in June of 1956.

Janet was united in marriage to John Wolfert on September 29, 1956, at Fountain Park United Brethren Church. They were happily married for 53 years and proudly celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2006.

Janet, along with her husband John, operated Wolfert Decorating. She also worked in appliance sales at the Prange’s Annex and Sears, for many years.

A lifelong member of Fountain Park United Methodist Church, Janet served on many committees, taught Sunday school with her mother Ella, and enjoyed participating in many events with the ‘Sunshine Girls’.

She adventured on many trips, traveling throughout the United States, including Mexico or anywhere warm. She was especially fond of the monthly laughs with the ‘Out to Lunch’ club with several dear friends. She was well blessed with her time spent at her condo in Bonita Springs, Florida, where she made many lasting friendships.

Janet was always the life of the party. She hooted and hollered when watching Wisconsin sports teams, especially the Packers. She attended and hosted many Packer parties. Janet didn’t let us forget about her attendance at the infamous Ice Bowl game! She loved going out to eat with family and friends. She looked forward to going up north and enjoying treasured time with her family. She cherished time spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Survivors include her three children and their spouses; Jeffrey and Linda Wolfert, Jill and David Olderman, James and Casandra Wolfert; eight grandchildren, Scott (partner Sam) Wolfert, Melissa (Jacob) Obbink, Kristin (Mark) Wishman, Amy (Tom) Conn, Jena (Justin) Goosen, Tylor (Jessica) Wolfert, Ryan (Kimberly) Wolfert, and Megan (Jacob) Plamann; Great-grandchildren, Hayden, Landon, Nicholas, Johnathan, Addison, Hunter, Arrianna, Deklyn, and Jameson; other family members and many friends.

I will miss my dear fun-loving friend. We had so very much fun and laughter each time we were together. Loved our Sunday lunches with many friends at Tacos and Tequila. Loved listening to our Christian music that we so enjoyed. I truly will miss her. She was so loved in our community in Spanish Wells.


Jan was one of my very special friends here in Spanish Wells. We had many good times. Always laughing, She was full of energy. We frequently argued over who was the better quarterback, but in the end, I know she knew nobody outplayed the "GOAT." A wonderful lady who I adored. Love to all the Wolfert's,
