Huck attended the University of Wisconsin, Madison graduating as a Medical Technologist in 1946. While at Wisconsin, she was a member of the Pi Beta Phi Sorority maintaining those wonderful friendships forever after. Huck went on to work in the laboratories at Saint Mary's and Columbia Hospitals for many years. She was also very involved with the Junior League of Milwaukee, working in Children's Theatre, The Blood Center and Curative Workshop. Loving to truly understand all things, and never lacking in opinions she was also an avid investor and a longtime member of an investment club on Milwaukee's North Shore. Huck was an avid traveler - loving the historical excitement of seeing China, Russia, East Germany, Poland just as they opened to the outside world. Janet Wemple's greatest passion was her family and her broad circle of dear, dear friends. She touched so many lives with her colorful, always heartfelt, always honest advice. Her loving spirit will forever be a wonderful part of each one of us. We were blessed to have had her in our lives. May we all share as much kindness with one another as she has always shared with us. A memorial service will be held on Sunday September 14 at 12:00 in the White's Garden - 1150 West Bradley Road, River Hills, Wisconsin. Please park at Saint Chrisopher's Episcopal Church - 7845 North River Road, River Hills, Wisconsin. There will be a shuttle or you may walk to the gardens. Rather than flowers, please make donations to Gilda's House ( A Junior League Project-a support program for cancer patients and their families), or to Saint Mary's Hospice. These are both wonderful programs!
