East Bristol/Sun Prairie-Janet (Schoepp) Pfeil, age 49, passed away peacefully on Friday, April 12, 2013 with her family and special friend, Dr. Alexandra McMurray, at her side. Janet fought a courageous but short battle with cancer.

She was born on January 23, 1964 and is the daughter of Donald and Marcelline (Wiest) Schoepp. Janet was united in marriage to Ronald Pfeil on December 29, 1990. Together, they have two beautiful children, daughter Lexi and son Dakota.

Janet worked for 23+ years in the dental field. Her family was the center of her life. She had a beautiful spark and vitality that lit up a room…and always kept us laughing. Most of all, she was an incredible mother.

Janet is survived by her husband, Ron; children Lexi and Dakota; her parents, Don and Marcy Schoepp; brother and sister-in-law, Mark and Lori Schoepp; father-in-law Gerald Pfeil; brothers-in-law Jerry and Jeff Pfeil; nieces and nephew, Megan and Brady Schoepp, Lisa and Jenna Pfeil, and Kendra and Missy Pfeil; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents Fred and Helen Schoepp and Raymond and Marcella Wiest, and her mother-in-law, Nancy Pfeil, whom Janet helped care for during her battle with Leukemia and loved very dearly.

Janet’s family would like to express their appreciation to the many people who offered assistance, kind thoughts, cards, prayers, flowers, food and in other ways helped during this difficult time. They would also like to thank the staff members of St. Mary’s Hospital, University Carbone Cancer Center, and Agrace Hospice.

In lieu of flowers, contributions to a trust fund for the educational and other needs of the children would be greatly appreciated.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11am on Friday, April 19, 2013 at ST. MARY OF THE LAKE CATHOLIC CHURCH, 5460 Mary Lake Road, Westport, with Fr. Greg Ihm officiating. A visitation will be held on Thursday, April 18, 2013 from 4pm to 7pm at RYAN FUNERAL HOME, 2418 N Sherman Ave, Madison.
