Janeen Sullivan

August 3, 1948 — March 19, 2021

Wausau, Formerly ofTerre Haute, Indiana

Janeen V. Sullivan, 72, of Wausau, WI, formerly of Terre Haute, IN passed away peacefully March 19, 2021 at Marshfield Medical Center- Weston.

Janeen was born in Wheaton, IL on August 3, 1948 to parents Chandler Emmett and Virginia Carolyn (Dumroese) Weith. She was an elementary teacher for over 30 years. She married James Sullivan in May of 1968 and together they raised two daughters. After retiring, Janeen moved to Wausau, WI and enjoyed spending her time at the cottage and gazing at the lake. She also enjoyed spending her time with her canine companions, Max and Brandy. Janeen was an avid reader and meticulously crafted dollhouses. She will be remembered for her excellent cooking and for her selflessness- often driving her grandson to gymnastics. She was an amazing mom and losing her leaves a hole in our hearts.

Janeen is survived by daughters, Dawn Sullivan Duschel and Erika Leigh Sullivan (David Lee Ward); grandson, Adam James Duschel; brothers-in-law, David Sullivan (children: Kelly and Brian), Jeff and Ruth Ann Sullivan (children: Justin, Ryan, Caitlin ), Kevin and Joy Sullivan (children: Patrick and Kyle); and sister-in-law, Sue Weith (children: Kelly, Matthew, Steven). She is preceded in death by her husband, James Sullivan; sister, Vickie Weith; brother, Gene Weith; parents, Virginia and Chandler Weith; and in-laws, Margaret Tiel and James Sullivan.

A celebration of Janeen’s life will be held in Indiana at a later date.
