Obituary for Janet L. Lindsey
Winnebago - Janet L. (Schumacher) Lindsey, 51, of Winnebago, died early Saturday morning, March 19, 2011, in UW Madison Hospital. Born May 5, 1959, in Rockford, the daughter of Lester and Margaret (Miller) Schumacher. Graduated in 1977 from Winnebago High School. Janet married David Lindsey on December 9, 1995, in First Lutheran Church, Pecatonica. She was previously employed by Agro Feed Seed, Karl Heeren Inc. and most recently by A.V. Reilly International as branch manager, until time of illness. In her youth, she was a member of the Burritt Winners 4-H Club serving as treasurer for two years, acted as a junior leader and coached the softball team for two years.
