February 21, 1940 — April 29, 2022

Menasha

Janice M. Harrmann, age 82, passed away on April 29th, 2022, at her home surrounded by her family, after a four-year battle with Cancer that she handled with great strength and confidence. She was born on February 21, 1940 to the late Norbert “Nibs” and Martha (Gawinski) Ambrosius.

Janice attended grade school through 8th grade at St. John the Baptist Catholic School and then attended Menasha High School where she graduated in 1958.  She married Glen Harrmann in 1960 and had 3 sons, Mike, Jeff and Dan. When her children were all in school, Jan went back to work at Best Bakery for a short time. She then worked in the food service program for Menasha School District for 24 years until her retirement in 1998. After her retirement, Jan’s interest turned to St. John the Baptist Church which she became a Eucharistic Minister, adult mass server, greeter, Sacristan, parish council member and whatever else St. John’s needed her for. It was something Jan really enjoyed. Jan also loved to bake for anyone and everyone. She loved making holiday meals for her family. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were the love of her life and she enjoyed teaching them how to cook and bake.

Jan was married to Glen Harrmann until his passing in 1998 after 38 years of marriage.
