Herr, Jane (04 Aug 1949-21 Sept 2012)

Jane M. Herr, 63, Greenwood, passed away with her loving family at her side at the Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital, Marshfield, on Friday, Sept 21, 2012, after a six month battle with leukemia. Funeral services were held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2012, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Greenwood. Rev. Joseph Follmar and Rev. Steven Brice co-officiated. Burial followed in the parish cemetery. Pallbearers were her brothers, Ed Weyer, Jim Weyer, Joe Weyer, Pat Weyer, Terry Weyer and Ray Weyer. Honorary pallbearers were Mary Schultz, Nita Herr, Janet Bushman, Peggy Friske, Diane Standford and Julie Denk.

Jane Marie Weyer was born on Aug. 4, 1949, in Marshfield to Robert and Dorothy (nee Walter) Weyer; the third of 11 children. She attended St. Anthony’s Catholic School in Loyal, St. Mary’s Academy in Prairie Du Chien, and Loyal High School, where she graduated in 1967. Following high school, she worked as a surgical technician at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield. She married William Herr, Greenwood, on Oct. 4, 1969, at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Loyal. She and her husband raised their family of five children on the family dairy farm north of Greenwood. In recent years, she became known to her grandchildren as “Farmer Grandma” a term of endearment that she treasured and nurtured. Jane earned a reputation as a community leaded and generous supporter of local activities. She was a long-term $-H leader and an active supporter of the Greenwood Athletic Rooster Club. In 1997, her family hosted the first Greenwood Dairy Breakfast, and then repeated the breakfast in June 2008. She loved her flowers and a well-kept lawn. Her friends ensured these loves were preserved during Jane’s illness, and she took great pleasure in their handiwork during her outpatient treatment. As a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Jane taught in the CCD program, supported the parochial school, and helped with the decorating activities for the church. She was a member of the church choir and thoroughly enjoyed singing at church gatherings. Many of her good friends were a result of these activities.

Jane is survived by her mother, Dorothy Weyer, Loyal; her husband, Bill; her children, Karrie (Guy) Willis, Medina, Minn., Teri (Ron) Wilczek, Marshfield, Kristy (Adam) Yaeger, Marshfield, Tom (Michelle) Herr, Eden Prairie, Minn., and Brandon Herr, Greenwood; five grandchildren, Sam, Gracie and Sophie Wilczek, and Ross and Ally Yaeger, all of Marshfield; her mother-in-law, Josephine Herr; her siblings, Edward (Dianne) Weyer, Fayetteville, Ga., Barbara (Ken Schultz) Simmonson, Marshfield, James (Deb) Weyer, Chili, Joseph (Mary Weyer, Loyal, Raymond (Bonnie) Weyer, Loyal, Susan (Denny) Buehler, Marshfield, Patrick (Barb) Weyer, Hawkins, Karen (Richard) Holland, Janesville, Terrance (Shirley) Weyer, Loyal and Cynthia (Bill ) Puent, Marshfield and numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.

The family requests that memorials to Jane be made to St. Mary’s Memorial Fund.

The family would like to thank Dr. Hocking and the staff on 8 North at Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield who were devoted in providing Jane exceptional care and support over the last six months. Jane touched their lives as she did with so many others and became close friends with those who cared for her.
