Janet L. Phegley, 80 of LaCrosse, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 22, 2022. She was born September 28, 1941, in Michigan City to the late Lloyd and Mildred (Tompach) Brown. Janet graduated from Elston High School in Michigan City and worked as an X-Ray Technician at St. Anthony’s Hospital, and a Nurse’s Aid in the Obstetrics department. She loved being a caretaker and relished in helping others. Janet enjoyed taking walks with friends, and being a devoted wife, mother, and homemaker. She was full of personality and known for her signature red lipstick which she affectionately left upon your cheek if you were lucky. As Janet said goodbye to anyone, she always made sure to say, “Love Ya!” She will be dearly missed by all who knew her. Love Ya Janet!
