She is survived by her husband, Charles (Chas) Raymond Wiiki, daughter Margaret Mary Wiiki, son Michael Roy Wiiki, mother Margaret Mary Schaller, and siblings Kathleen Marie Lally, James Robert Schaller, Margaret Mary Andreas, and Thomas Joseph Schaller, mother-in-law Florence, sister-in-law Yvonne, Brothers-in-law Roy, Roger and his wife Annie, Ralph and his wife Peggi and Rodney.

Born in Euclid, Ohio, Janet grew up in New Jersey, and later relocated to Texas, where she met Chas, her husband of 35 years, and resided in The Woodlands, Texas, her beloved new home town, a planned community located just north of Houston.

Janet held a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Old Dominion University, and a Master’s degree in Industrial Hygiene from Texas A&M University. She went on to earn the Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH), and Certified Safety Professional (CSP) designations, and later founded ICU Environmental, Health & Safety, a consulting firm with more than 50 employees. Her company designed and implemented Health and Safety programs and training for many clients from the Gas and Oil, Television, Government, and Food Service industries.

Janet was highly intelligent, and a tough competitor at Jeopardy and Trivial Pursuit. She loved animals, especially her dogs Nellie, Sable, Doc, Johnny and Rebel. Janet had many other pets including a horse, a goat, Guinea pigs, and cats.

Janet enjoyed RV-ing, cruising, Aggies, Astros, and Rockets games, crawfish, and anything Disney, especially The Brown Derby restaurant and Fantasmic show. She also enjoyed antiquing, which included a ladies-only annual road trip Roundtop, Texas. She attended concerts spanning the Watkins Glen Festival, Willie Nelson’s Picnic, Grateful Dead concerts, and Bob Dylan to Broadway Shows.

Janet loyally maintained friendships from childhood through high school, college, and beyond. Her friends wrote heartfelt, funny, sad, and beautiful tributes to her while she rested in hospice.

Janet was a born leader with a spirited heart of generosity. She is missed immensely, and her impact on her friends and family lives on.

Stories of growing up with Janet and her siblings/family are some of my best childhood memories. I loved it when Janet pulled out her guitar and we all sang along to everything she played. She was so funny and smart! My roots go deep with the whole Schaller family and my heart goes out to all of them with Janet's passing.

Love to all,
Nancy Brennan Gudelski

Janet, beloved friend. Your spirit will be with us whenever we are having a good belly laugh, or when we need someone to walk in the rain with us, or even when we are just going for a ride.
