Janice Schimmel, age 92, died on July 5, 2021, at Pleasant View Nursing Home after a brief illness. She was born Dec. 29, 1928, on the farm in Sumpter, Wisconsin, the daughter of Harry and Mabel Cramblett. Janice graduated from Blue River High School.  She started her career in Milwaukee, where she met her husband, John.  They were married in 1951.  In 1959, they purchased a home in Malvern, Pennsylvania, where Janice resided for 61 years before moving to Brodhead in 2020 to be near her family. Leaving her Pennsylvania extended wonderful family was a difficult decision.  Janice was a devoted member of the First Church of Christ Scientist in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, and was a Sunday school teacher for many years. She also worked in the local school library and was a township poll worker. Her interests were reading, painting and adopting any stray cat that would appear at her doorstep.

She is survived by her sister, Darlene (Ron) Schwartzlow; and many nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Harry and Mabel Cramblett; her husband, John Schimmel, in 2005; sister, Josephine (Russel) Pinnow; and brother, James (Patricia) Cramblett.

A memorial service will be held at noon on Saturday, July 31, at the DL Newcomer Funeral Home in Brodhead. A visitation will be held from 11 a.m. until the time of service.
