Judy once said all she ever wanted was to be a wife and Mom. She was great at both of those jobs. She was a wonderful cook, making sure everyone had their favorite meal or dessert on their birthday. She was a fabulous baker, with dozens of couples having her wedding cakes at their receptions. She was a kind and caring friend and neighbor, always there with a cup of coffee and some wonderful baked good. Most importantly, she was a sweet mom, who loved with her whole heart. She made sure her children knew they were loved, every day.
Judy's family would like to thank Hilllview staff for taking such good care of her during the last few weeks of her life. We would also like to thank friend and neighbor, Terry Houlihan, for her friendship and support over the years. Last, but not least, a huge thank you to her son-in-law, Dale, who spent the last year and half keeping her company and allowing her to live out on the farm after Rollie's passing. That time was priceless to her. We can't thank you all enough for the loving care she received. Online guestbook may be signed at www.schumacher-kish.com.

Your Mom was so special to me. I worked with her in Special Functions at Gundersen. We had so much fun and shared many laughs. My deepest sympathies to all of you as you go through this time .
