Janeen Boettger


Our community lost an important member, Janeen Emery Boettger, age 68, of Hot Springs, passed away Sunday, April 2, 2023.


She was born on April 29, 1954, in McCook, Nebraska, the daughter of Lindenburg Deforest Emery and Mae Lorraine Morosic Emery.  On October 21, 1978, she married the love of her life, Timothy W. Boettger, who passed away on December 29, 2021.  She is also preceded in death by her parents; and her sister, Linda Skeet.


Jeneen was a pillar of the healthcare community of Hot Springs.  She was a wound and ostomy, specialty nurse, advanced practice registered nurse, professor of nursing, and colleague.  She provided the best care, for which she is celebrated, always showing such compassion.  Along with being an amazing nurse, she was an even more incredible wife, mom and grandma.  She was notorious for making the best peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, her contagious laugh, and Mimi hugs.

She is survived by two daughters, Lindsay Nicole Crise and Allison Danielle Wahbi; two grandchildren, Abraham Magnus Wahbi and Norah Johanne Wahbi; her brother, Robert (Kim) Emery; her brother-in-law, Allen Skeet; nieces, nephews, extended family members and a host of wonderful friends.
