Janett Rohlfsen Crouse died November 10, 2018, in Kerrville, Texas. Janett was born February 25, 1931, to Elmer and Edna Rohlfsen at home in Germantown, Iowa. She graduated from Paullina High School, Paullina, Iowa.
Janett married Harlan Wesley Crouse on August 14, 1949. They farmed 330 acres and owned and operated one of the larger hog confinement operations in the Paullina area. They retired from farming in 1989.
Harlan and Janett enjoyed traveling in their Holiday Rambler motorhome, starting with a 32 ft unit and working up to a 44 ft unit which was their fulltime home for eight years. During this time they joined the Holiday Rambler RV Club in 1980 and attended many local, regional, and national rallies as well as many caravans and adventures covering all 50 states and into Canada. During their RV years they volunteered in different areas of the country at Presbyterian retreat centers and discovered Mo-Ranch and the Hill Country of Texas. They volunteered at Mo-Ranch for several months each winter from 1991-1996. They decided to retire from RVing and bought a home in Rio Robles Park in Kerrville in 1998 where they lived until moving to Brookdale Independent Living in 2017.
