Rev. John J. Janett, Well Known Retired Pastor, Passes Away At Home of Daughter

The Rev. John J. Janett, D. D., aged ninety-two, well known retired pastor of Zion Reformed church died early this morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Joseph E. Leberman, 318 Huron avenue. Although he had been ill since Friday, his condition did not become critical until Sunday.

The Rev. Janett was born in Switzerland on Nov. 24, 1839, and came to America in 1867. Two years later he was licensed as a preacher from the Reformed Ohio Synod, and later ordained from the old Iowa Classics. He came to Sheboygan as pastor of Zion Reformed church in 1891 and served the congregation faithfully until 1906. It was during his pastorate that a new organ, which is still in use, and the church bells were purchased.

For thirty-six years the Rev. Janett was a regular writer for the Reformed Synod at Cleveland, Ohio. Sometimes he also taught practical theology at the Mission House and up until a few years ago he still wrote short sermons and poems for church publications.

Dr. Janett's entire life was one of service and he continued to serve actively as long as his advanced age would permit. At the time of his ninetieth birthday celebrations, when special services were conducted in his honor at Zion church, he delivered the German sermon and his son, the late Rev. John Janett of Milwaukee, conducted the English service. Since he retired as pastor of the congregation, the Rev. Janett frequently occupied the pulpit aiding the pastor during communion and special services.

The Rev. Janett was married on Sept. 16, 1870, at Monticello, Ia., to Miss Ursula Buol, who died in this city, Oct. 13, 1903. Rev. Janett was remarried on June 15, 1905, to Elizabeth Ambuehl, who preceded him in death on March 11, 1916.

Survivors are two daughter, Mrs. Joseph E. Leberman, with whom the Rev. Janett had been making his home, and Mrs. Kathryn Tarnutzer, this city, and eight grand-children, John Du nther and Ruth Janett, Margaret Janett Eilett and Rosalind Janett of Milwaukee; Andrew Tarnutzer, Miss Janet Leberman and Buol Leberman of this city. One son, the Rev. J. P. Janett of Milwaukee died in March of this year. Another son and a daughter also preceded him in death.

Private funeral service for the immediate family will be conducted Friday morning at the Leberman residence, 318 Huron avenue, after which the body will be removed to Zion Reformed church where it will lie in state from 10 a. m. until the time of the funeral at 2 o'clock. The casket will not be opened at the close of the service.

Rev. John P. Janett, Son Of Retired Pastor Here, Is Called To Rest On Sunday

The Rev. John P. Janett of Milwaukee son of Dr. J. J. Janett, 92 year-old retired pastor of this city, died early this morning at his home after having been ill for two and one-half years with progressive bulbar palsy. He was 57 years of age.

The Rev. Mr. Janett was well known in Sheboygan as well as throughout the state. During the past two years he officiated here at two important occasions, the first of which was on June 15, 1929, at the First Congregational church, and the second on Nov. 25, 1929, when special services were conducted at Zion Reformed church in honor of his father's ninetieth birthday anniversary. At that time he delivered the English sermon, while his aged father spoke in the German languages.

Rev. Janett was born in Clay City Ind. Nov. 23, 1874. He attended the Freeport high school at Freeport, Ill., and later years came here to attend Mission House College and seminary. It was during those years that his father, the Rev. J. J. Janett was pastor of Zion Reformed church of this city. Rev. Janett left school to service his country during the Spanish-American war, later returning to his studies. He was graduated from Mission House seminary in 1898 and the became pastor of a Reformed church at Evansville, Ind, which his father had serviced at one time.

When his voice failed a few years later, Rev. Janett was forced to resign as pastor of the church and it was then that he came to Milwaukee to make his home. Although he never became pastor of another church, due to his voice affliction, he was called to all parts of the state to conduct services, fulfilling engagements almost every Sunday for a long time.

For five years Rev. Janett was religious editor of the Milwaukee Sentinel, writing a column which appeared daily, including Sundays. As the author of this column he became widely known in the state, receiving letters from hundreds of people throughout Wisconsin and vicinity. In this capacity he helped many persons in solving vital problems in their live.

In October, 1900, Rev. Janett was married to Miss Lydia Riese of this city at Zion Reformed church. The Rev. J. J. Janett performed the ceremony.

Beside his widow, Rev. Janett is survived by a son, Ewald, at home, and two daughters, Mrs. Harold Vilett of Chicago, and Miss Rosalind, at home; his aged father, Dr. J. J. Janett of this city, and two sisters, Mrs. Joseph Leberman and Mrs. Cathryn Tarnutzer, both of Sheboygan.

Man Found Hanged To Death In Shed In Town Of Wilson

The body of a Sheboygan man who had been missing for several months was found early Tuesday afternoon in an abandoned shed in the Town of Wilson.

Raymond Jankow, 47, of Route 4, Sheboygan, was discovered hanging from a rafter in a shed on the Magnus Brinkman property south of Terry Andre State Park.

The discovery was made by Brinkman and Joseph Rothe, of Sheboygan, about 1:50 p.m.

Dr. Reed Simpson, Sheboygan Coroner, estimated that Jankow had committed suicide late in July. The badly decomposed body was taken to the county morgue.

Jankow, a bachelor, had been living with a sister, Mrs. Harry Moenning, 2413 Lower Falls Rd., when he disappeared last May 19, authorities reported.

The family did not report the disappearance because, according to Sheriff Harold B. Kroll, Jankow was in the habit of leaving home for extended periods.

It is believed he was last seen in a Sheboygan County tavern late in June or in the Terry Andre area in July.

Jankow was born Nov. 15, 1909, in the Town of Wilson, a son of the late Charles and Olga Jankow. He attended district schools in the Town of Wilson.

Recently he had been employed as a landscaper by Oliver Schultz, a local landscape contractor.
