Janice L. Poppert, 79, passed away peacefully at Mercy Hospice of Johnston on April 23, 2015 after a long, brave battle against COPD. Per her wishes, cremation rites were accorded and she will be interred next to her beloved husband during a private ceremony at Glendale Cemetery. Following the July 18 interment, family will gather to remember and celebrate her life. Janice was born on May 7, 1935, in Grand Island, NE to Fred and Selma (Beyersdorf) Hausmann. Following her graduation from Grand Island High School, she married Ralph Poppert, raised four children and worked as a bookkeeper and office manager in the medical field for over 45 years. She retired from Drs. Foreman and Dick in 1997 and spent her retirement years traveling and enjoying time with her family. Janice loved card games and was an avid reader and determined Scrabble player. During college football season she never missed a NE game – Go Big Red! She is survived and lovingly remembered by her two sons, Rick Poppert of Chicago, Tim Poppert of Des Moines, and her daughter Kerry Poppert Goodson (Dick) of Des Moines; her brothers Bob Hausmann of Grand Island, Jack (Leslie) Hausmann of Omaha, and her sister Linda Michel of Ankeny; seven grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. Preceding her in death were her parents, her husband Ralph, her beloved daughter Jennifer Lynn (Martinez), and her infant sister Julie Kay. Her family is incredibly thankful for the wonderful care she received from the hospice nurses and staff.
