Buelow, Janet Delores (Miner)
Janet passed away very peacefully on July 14, 2022 at her home in Bloomington, MN with her loving daughter by her side.
Janet will be best remembered as a devoted mother, wife and genuine friend to all. If you knew her or even met her you know this to be true.
She was born in Cornell, WI on March 5, 1934 to Emery (Frank) Miner and Helen (Materski) Miner. Janet loved Cornell and as a young woman had no desire to leave. It was her father who gently encouraged her to venture out. She initially moved to Eau Claire, WI for a brief stay before moving to Milwaukee, WI with her sister. That is where she met a young recently discharged Korean War serviceman Charles (Chuck) Buelow who would become her husband for 62 years. Charles worked multiple jobs during the day and went to college under the GI Bill at night. Janet stayed home with their four children. Working together they were able to successfully provide for and support their family. In 1968 they moved to Menomonie, WI looking for an idyllic place to raise their young family.
Janet loved Menomonie where she and Chuck lived for nearly 40 years. There was nothing she would rather do than be with her family. She loved her home and loved her many great friends both from her days in Cornell and Menomonie. Being with and providing for her family was always her greatest joy. As lives got busy with school and extracurricular activities there was always one certainty, she would have dinner on the table waiting. Dinner time was family time and she always made it special. At age 80 she was truly blessed with her one and only grandchild. A long wait for sure but well worth it. Grandson Daniel brought her unrelenting joy and comfort in her twilight years.
Janet loved music and she loved to dance. She and Chuck danced great together. She loved movies. She loved the theater. She loved reading and gardening. She loved to cook and her meals were the best. She loved her church and had a deep faith. She was supportive, kind and encouraging to all. She went to work after the kids were grown at Kivlin Eye Clinic. It was a job she very much enjoyed.
After retirement Janet and Chuck started spending winters in West Palm Beach, FL. They moved there full time in 2005. In 2015 they moved to Minnesota to be closer to family.
Janet was preceded in death by her beloved husband Charles and her beloved son Daniel, her mother and father, sisters Joan and Sandra, her sisters-in-law Mary, Patricia and Kathleen along with many other cherished family members and friends.
She is survived by children; Laura (Bill), Karen Gould (Steve), David (Mica), grandson Daniel, brother-in-law Steve Buelow (Marge), many nieces, nephews and friends.
There will be a memorial service for Janet on October 1, 2022 at St. Joseph's Catholic Church, 901 Wilson Avenue, Menomonie, WI at 11:00am with visitation one hour prior. Interment and a luncheon will follow the service. Any contribution should be made to the charity of your choice in Janet's memory.
