She was born on March 1, 1932, in Door County to the late Harry and Edna Voight. She spent her childhood in Door County where she met and married the love of her life, Gerald Wickman on October 27, 1951. Janet and Jerry began their married life in Illinois where their 5 children were born. Later they made Green Bay their home where they became long time members of Redeemer Lutheran Church.
