Janet (Struck) Brewster

Janet (Struck) Brewster, 69, passed away peacefully at her home in Siren, Wisconsin, on Thursday, March 26, 2020. She was surrounded by family. Janet was born June 29, 1950, in Frederic, Wisconsin. She was the third of eight children born to parents William (Junior) and Rosemary Struck. Like her siblings, she spent a lot of her youth working, roller-skating and dancing at the Frederic Rec Center. She also participated in the women’s bowling league where she was on a family team for several decades. Janet’s home has been a place of comfort for many family members and friends since she and Bob were married in the home in 1974. They raised their own children and many foster children in that home. Janet always welcomed everyone into her home and treated everyone like family.
Janet will be remembered as a fun, welcoming, caring person who loved to take care of other people. Janet began her career in the medical profession as a lab tech and later attended St. Catherine’s University to get her degree in nursing. Janet worked as a registered nurse at Frederic Hospital and then later at Burnett Medical Center. She retired from Burnett Medical Center in the fall of 2017. Being a nurse was not just her career, it was who she was. She enjoyed traveling, especially her vacations in Mexico, visiting the casinos and spending time with family and friends. There was nothing more important to her than her family.
Janet is survived by her mother-in-law, Florence Brewster of Frederic. She is also survived by her daughters, Jill (John) Tinman and Rachael (Gary) Bearhart of Siren; son, James (Sarah) Brewster of Frederic; 11 grandchildren, Autumn, Austin, Chris, Damon, AJ, Rilee, Chance, Tanner, Calvin, Walter and Olen. She is also survived by her siblings, Susie (Bobby) Houston, Joel (Cary) Struck, Teri (Rich) Larson and Julie (Todd) Hall; brother-in-law, Lee Pomerleau; sister-in-law, Lori Struck; aunt, Pat Berman; and dozens of nieces, nephews and cousins.
Janet was preceded in death by her parents, Rosie and Junior Struck; husband, Robert “Bob” Brewster; sisters, Judy Kuchenmeister and JoAnn Pomerleau; brother, John Struck; and granddaughter, Savanna Bearhart.
A Celebration of Life will be held for Janet later in the year. Arrangements were entrusted to Swedberg-Taylor Funeral Home, Siren. Online condolences can be made at
