Janet Marie Dautremont

Iowa City

Janet Marie Dautremont, 71, passed away unexpectedly in her home Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018.
Janet was born Dec. 13, 1946, in Iowa City, to Stephen and Eileen (Prizler) Dautremont. She lived most of her life in Riverside until moving to Coralville at the age of 59. Janet was part of one of the very first Special Education programs in Iowa, graduating from Washington High School, Washington, Iowa. After graduation, she started her career with Goodwill Industries. In 1976, Janet was hired at the University of Iowa Laundry, where she worked for 35 years.
For Janet, there were three things in life: church, family and the Hawkeyes. As a devout Catholic, Janet attended St. Mary's church in Riverside, where she and her mother could be seen in the same pew every Sunday. After moving to Coralville, Janet attended St. Mary's Catholic Church in Iowa City with her friend Christie.
Janet loved nothing more than her family, especially her great-nieces and -nephews. Her face would instantly light up and she always had a new book ready to give to them. She also had great love for her sister-in-law and closest friend Sharon, who was a constant support for Janet.
Whether it was football, basketball or wrestling, Janet was always rooting for her Hawkeyes. Her favorite was Hawkeye wrestling. Janet could recite the players, schedules and stats. She was through and through a true Hawkeye.
Janet is preceded in death by her father and mother, Stephen and Eileen; and her sister and brother-in-law, Lynn and Tom Lickiss.
She is survived by her brother and sister-in-law, Mike and Sharon (Gerot) Dautremont and their children, Wes (Jen) Dautremont and Stacia (Aaron) Walker. Great-nephews and -nieces include, Jack, Cora, Lila and Gavin.
Funeral services will be held Sunday, Nov. 18, at 4 p.m. at Lensing Oak Hill, 210 Holiday Rd., Coralville. Visitation will be from 3 to 4 p.m. Sunday. Family interment services will be Monday at Saint Vincent Cemetery in Riverside.
