Obituary For Janet Ann Ollech

Windsor/Chicago- Janet Ann (Mortenson) Ollech, age 75, the Matriarch of our family, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Tuesday, May 31, 2022, after a brief, but courageous battle with cancer. Jan was born on March 4, 1947, in Chicago, Illinois. She was the second child of Arthur and Mary (Lesnar) Mortenson, joining her brother Art.

Jan graduated from St. Gregory High School in Chicago, Illinois in 1965. Soon after she married and started a family. Jan spent most of her early years being a wonderful Mother, Wife, Aunt, and trusted Friend to many.

Jan also spent many years owning, running, and managing 2 successful businesses. The most recent being a bar, The Cabaret Lounge. She was happy being there for all of her patrons that looked at her as “Mom”, as she cared about each and every one of her customers like family. She will be missed.

Janet is survived by her four Sons: Peter (Lisa) Lindahl, Bill Lindahl (Julie Del Pilar), Mark (JoAnne) Lindahl, Robert Ollech; seven Grandchildren, Andrew, Amanda, Abby, Mary, Nick, Isabella, Amelia; one great-granddaughter Nora; her close friend and sister-in-law Camille Mortenson and many nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents Arthur and Mary and her Brother Arthur Mortenson.

At this time there will be no services per Mom's request. We hope to gather for a celebration of her life in the future.

what our families say

Tiffany Foster went out of her way to fulfill all my requests, talked me through problems I was facing, and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I was a wreck, totally crushed, and I thank her with all of my heart for that.

The professional manner of the staff made a difficult time a little easier.

Services provided for both parents were perfect, on time, and no issues. Brenda is awesome and strong!

Michael M. | July 2020

Skyler was absolutely amazing. She was so caring and helpful through this whole process. She even went above and beyond to meet with us in DeForest and even to make a stop at our home to drop off or pick up anything needed. While it was a small gesture, it was so helpful and greatly appreciated.
