Judith Jeanine Seamans (Kunstman), age 81, passed away on Wednesday, February 3, 2021 at Cherry Meadows in Appleton, WI. Judy was born January 10, 1940 in Green Bay, the daughter of Gordon and Dorothy (Hayden) Kunstman.
In the fall of 2019 she was diagnosed with a meningioma brain tumor. She underwent 2 extensive surgeries, but unfortunately after a long, hard battle, she lost her fight.
Judy worked at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton as a unit clerk in the ICU and retired after 25 years.
Our mom and Grandma Judy enjoyed playing bingo and said her car could drive itself to Green Bay. (Caitlan is so sad you won’t be here on her 18th birthday to take her to bingo like you planned).
She was proud of keeping an immaculate home and was very organized. For many years she had a pool in her backyard and enjoyed spending countless hours out there with her grandkids. After retirement she turned her yard into a garden haven. She loved working outdoors and spent many hours tending to her beautiful flower beds. Another thing she was proud of and hoping to set an example for others was quitting smoking for 5 years. She always said if she could quit, others could too.
Mom was a very independent woman that liked doing everything for herself. She was very giving and loved helping others. She could run circles around people half her age, just like the Energizer Bunny. She loved all animals, and enjoyed exercising, walking, and reading.
Judy is survived by her daughters Tina (Bill) Ahrens, Appleton; and Randi Stein, Sheboygan; grandchildren: Sonnet (Craig) Uhlenbrauck; Shantel Ahrens; Branden (Kristin) Ahrens; Jenni Stein; Jackie Stein; and Andy Stein; great grandchildren: Nate, Cole, Caitlan, Ryker, Radyn, Dexyn, Hadley, Matthew, and Zoey.
She is further survived by her sisters: Jacqueline Froehlich, Appleton; and Janice Rohde, Clover Leaf Lake, Embarrass; nieces: Pamela Froehlich; Lori (Steven) Mulhern; and Lynn (Brian) Gerrits.
Judy was preceded in death by her husband, Allan Seamans, parents Gordon and Dorothy (Hayden) Kunstman, brothers-in-law George Froehlich and Jerry Rohde and a niece Patricia Froehlich Dochterman.
Judy generously donated her body to the Medical College of Wisconsin.
There will be a private family funeral to celebrate her life

Mom- We were all so hopeful these surgeries would work and you would be able to enjoy many more years with our family. I’m so happy and proud to have had you as my mom. I already miss you so much, and the only thing I am happy for in you leaving, is that you are now free of pain. I know you are watching over us. Until we meet again.
