Judy’s faith in God was of the utmost importance to her, and her life was marked by service to



She loved to sew and crochet, and over the years she made thousands of hats, scarves, and

mittens for needy people in the area.

She was also a prayer warrior. When time and poor health made it difficult for her to sew or

crochet, she often said, “I may not be able to do much anymore, but I can pray.” She was

always happy to lift others up, and to ask God to meet their needs according to His will.


Throughout all of her health issues, she always maintained a great sense of humor, and we will

always remember her witty banter, friendly smile, and her loving heart.


A Celebration of her Life will take place at Village Community Church, 662 Schelfhout Ln,

Kimberly, WI on Thursday October 25, 2018 at 1:00 PM, with visitation from noon until the time

of service.


The family would like to thank the Appleton Police Department and the Outagamie Co.

Coroners Office for their courteous service, as well as the folks at Fresenius Kidney Care of

Appleton for taking such good care of Judy over the years.
