Learn some fun facts about Janyne below.

Janyne’s favorite Alexa command: Alexa, play happy music from the 70’s.

Favorite fiction author: James le Carre

Janyne’s favorite color: Purple. They called me "Peek the Purple People Eater" as a kid.

Janyne’s favorite place: Anywhere warm, near a large body of water with sandy beaches.

Favorite team: Da Bears!

Favorite sport: I’m much more of a fan than athlete, but Mike and I really love walking a round of golf at Field Club of Omaha, the oldest golf course west of the Mississippi. The clubhouse features photos of Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Perry Como golfing there in their hey-day!

Favorite tradition: Mike and I moved into the family home he and his 8 brothers and sisters shared.  It was built just after the Civil War, in 1885. With 9 kids, the Emsicks are a whopper sized family, and our home is steeped in family memories since the early 50s!   Each Christmas we host a Children’s Christmas Party which 75 or so family members attend. Its nuts! The kids decorate ornaments, create their own pizzas, and we have a Christmas program where the youngest share the Nativity Story and sing classic Christmas Carols. Then Santa ho-ho-hos from the attic and “surprises” the kids with presents. For the rest of my life I will smile at the memory of all of the kids squealing for Santa!
