She was born February 22, 1922, at the home farm in Cecil, WI, to the late Robert and Emma (Meyer) Bahr during a raging snow storm which was an omen to her life that was filled with many challenges and adventures. She was the 9th and youngest child. In 1940 she married Harold G. Steeno who passed in 1981. Janet would have liked to be remembered as a devout Catholic whose sole purpose in life was to serve God and to be the very best mother.
