Jeanette “Jan” A. Reamer, age 80, passed peacefully under at Mount View Care Center of Wausau, WI.

Jan was born October 6, 1941, in Minneapolis, MN to the late Richard and Thelma (Pettinger) Anderson. After high school, she graduated from beauty school in Minneapolis and worked as a beautician until she became a homemaker. Jan was a loving and caring mother to her 5 children, but her love did not stop there; her loving and caring nature extended to all that knew her and would consider her a second mother. Jan’s favorite pastimes were, shooting pool in leagues, going fishing, sewing, playing cribbage with her friend Sylvia, quilting, and baking large chocolate chip cookies for her children’s birthday.

Jan is survived by her children; Kathi Reamer, Brian (Laura) Reamer, Robert Reamer, and Richard Reamer, her grandchildren; Nicole (Kris), Thomas (Anissa), Travis (Miranda), Robert, Chelsea (Justin), Taneekah (Brad & Mindy), James, Ryan (Alyssa), Logan (Amanda), and Cassidy, her great-grandchildren; Aubrey, Kinsley, Jayson, Jaxon, Clara, Charlotte, Emma, Amara, Savannah, Brinley, Airyabella, Allyazzah,   her siblings; Richard (Jan), Rani, Bruce, and Marcia (Jerry).

She was preceded in death by her parents, daughter Amy and longtime companion Peter.

The family would like to thank Interim HealthCare for the care and comfort they have provided to Jan.

Jan’s family would especially like to thank Jean Risberg for the wonderful care she provided to Jan through the years; her friendship and support are very much appreciated and will not be forgotten.
