Janet Lucille Wallace, age 82 years, of rural Hillsboro, Wisconsin, passed away on Wednesday, April 20, 2022 at home surrounded by her family.

She was born on March 4, 1940 in La Crosse, Wisconsin, the only child of Eman and Lucy (Sebranek) Rott.  Janet grew upon on the family farm on Rott Lane near Yuba.  She graduated from the Richland Center High School in 1958.

Janet was united in marriage to Arnold Wallace on June 11, 1960 at the First Congregational Church in Hillsboro.  He preceded her in death on July 13, 2021.

They lived in Union Center and in 1974 moved to Janet’s uncle, Jacob Rott’s farm near Yuba and began their life as farmers.  Janet also worked at Hofmeister Insurance, Reedsburg Canning Factory, Hillsboro Footwear and Lands End.  She retired from Land End in 2006.  So, she wouldn’t get bored, she became a driver for the Amish Community and soon became a good friend to them.  They also sold their farm near Yuba and moved to their home near West Lima.

Janet was a member of the Yuba Homemakers and Bloom City United Methodist Church Ladies.  She was also a 4-H group leader of the Syresville Starlets in ceramics.  She was a very busy 4-H mother taking Teena, Mark and Denise to many local county fairs.  Janet later helped out with the 4-H Groups at the Richland County Fair for many years.

She was also an avid musician and played the accordion, piano, trumpet and baritone.  Janet later on became a piano player for the Bloom City United Methodist Church for many years.
