May 31, 1937 – July 15, 2023
Janet Lucille Iggulden (née: Valukas), 86, passed away at her residence on July 12, 2023. She was born in Racine on May 31, 1937, the daughter of the late Anthony and Lucille (nee: Helling) Valukas.
Janet was united in marriage to the love of her life, Charles “Chuck” Iggulden, on May 15, 1965, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Racine.
In her younger years, Janet was an avid bowler and baseball player. She worked as a medical assistant for Dr. Kreul for many years. She enjoyed collecting giraffes, Santas, and spoons. She was a Cookie Mom when both of her girls were in Girl Scouts and was actively involved in guiding all three of her children toward college. She was a devoted Brewers and Packers fan, loved the lottery and game shows, and could often be found with a crossword or watching her soaps. Above all, she loved her family tremendously and will be dearly missed by all who loved her.
