Janet Lou Reiman was born on January 1, 1948 at Columbus, NE to Albert “Wayne” and Lois (Matson) Gates. She grew up in the Lindsay and Newman Grove area. She attended rural school district #37 and graduated from Newman Grove High School in 1966. Prior to her marriage she worked at the Delay Bank and Roman Meat Packing in Norfolk, NE.
On June 21, 1969, she was united in marriage to Gerald Reiman at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Beemer, NE. The couple lived on a farm northeast of Beemer until moving to West Point in 2010. For the last several years, Janet has worked at St. Joseph's Retirement Community in West Point, NE. She was truly passionate about caring for the residents who along with the staff soon became her extended family.
She was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church in West Point, its Ladies Guild and Christian Mother's. The grandchildren were her pride and joy, which meant several hours at their sporting events and school activities. The highlight of the summer was the annual camping trip with the grandchildren. They also traveled to numerous places across the country to visit family and friends. Janet loved to bake, which included the family's favorite dinner rolls, cakes and thousands of mini cupcakes that will be missed by all.
