Jayne Rueth was born on Jan. 31, 1935, in Loyal, to Leo and Agnes (nee Suda) Rueth. She attended St. Anthony’s Parochial School and was a 1953 graduate of Loyal High School. She married LaVern Kolbeck on July 4, 1956, at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Loyal. He died on Oct. 18, 2004. Jayne was employed at St. Joseph’s Hospital for more than 35 years as a medical record technician. She and LaVern spent a great deal of their time enjoying their grandchildren’s sporting events and were true Columbus Don basketball fans as well as Marshfield Blades hockey fans. She also attended her granddaughter’s cheerleading competitions and supported her youngest grandson’s bowling events. Jayne further enjoyed sewing and knitting in her younger years, and reading and doing puzzles later on. She and LaVern enjoyed dancing with friends on the weekends in their earlier years, especially if her brother-in-law’s band — the Monico’s — were playing. They also enjoyed the slots and bingo together. She also spent a lot of time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Jayne was a “mom” not only to Cindy and Janalee, but also to many nieces, nephews and young women who rented from them over the years. She was a true blessing to so many.

She is survived by two daughters: Cindy (Ed) Lee, Marshfield, and Jannalee (Ben) Kolbeck-Lindquist, Marshfield; five grandchildren: Michael, Shawn and Ryan Lee, Krista Herkert, and Adam Herkert and his fiancé, Candace Corbin; her older brother, Herbert “Chub” Rueth of Idaho; and many nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be designated in her name to Getting’ Down Central Wisconsin, the local Down Syndrome Support Group @ or the House of the Dove.

Her family would like to thank the House of the Dove staff for their dedicated care and kind words. They would also like to thank their family, friends and co-workers for their support during this difficult time.
