Janis was born October 31, 1956 to Roman J. and Lucille E. (Kollodge) Meier. Following high school graduation, Janis enrolled at Mankato State University where she obtained Bachelor’s degrees in Criminal Justice and Law. Janis’ faith was her rock and she walked strongly with the support of her faith. She was outgoing, funny loving, and caring; willing to give you the shirt off of her back. Janis was an amazing multi-tasker and enjoyed coloring with gel pens; often creating beautiful works of art. Most importantly, Janis loved her family beyond words and she will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Janis is survived by her children, Kayla (Jorge) Valle of St. Cloud, Kyle Kauffman of St. Cloud; grandchildren, Roman, Eliana, Emilia, Jorge, Devenn, Ivette; and brother, Rick (Bonnie) Meier of Holdingford.

She was preceded in death by her parents.
