Janet Maddin

Janet Maddin (Willner) passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by family in Galveston, Texas on March 2, 2018, after a courageous battle with ovarian cancer. She was born on Aug. 29, 1957, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Wausau as the daughter of the late Willard and Bernice (Michalski) Willner.
