Judith Sosinsky Judith A. Sosinsky
HILLSBORO -- Judith (Judy) Ann Sosinsky (Arndt), 67, of Hillsboro passed away Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2018, at Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital in Hillsboro. Judy gave it all she had in her battle with cancer from 2014 and surprised more than one doctor in the process.
Judy was born to William and Elna Arndt (Leland) Nov. 17, 1951, in Monroe County and grew up in the Wilton area. She graduated from Brookwood High School and was married to Terry Sosinsky in September of 1984. They shared everything in life together and were each other's rock. They worked together on the ambulance, at St Joseph's Hospital and for a few years enjoyed a photography business.
Judy had taken training throughout her early adulthood in different areas, but always with the goal of being able to help someone else. She taught First Aid and CPR, along with being an ambulance attendant, in the early days with the funeral home providers and then as an EMT with Wilton and Tri State Ambulance. She was a charter member of Hillsboro Area Ambulance and gave 22 years of service with them to the Hillsboro area.
Judy was one of the most caring and sharing people you would ever meet. Throughout her life she had love for the Lord and cared for and about everyone. She always tried to pass on a smile, including, as many can tell you, that Happy Birthday or Anniversary phone call. She enjoyed heading out in the RV and the destination really didn't matter as long as it ended with a campfire. She always made a place for a couple stray cats and they were treated like royalty for only a sit on her lap and a purr. Anytime anyone asked how she was doing, including during her fight with lung cancer, the answer was always “fine as frogs hair” with a big grin. She fought her cancer as hard as anyone could. Her “let's just get to it” attitude with treatments contributed to as normal a life as could be expected during it all. She enjoyed her friends, even those she hadn't met yet.
Even though she'll be enjoying those beautiful sunsets from Glory, in the arms of her Creator and surrounded by family and friends, we will miss her so much here. We will strain to catch a glimpse of her in the last fading colors of the sun knowing she is waiting to see us again.
Judy is survived by her husband, Terry, of Hillsboro; brothers, William Arndt (Sandy), St. Cloud, Minn., and Larry Arndt (Cindy), Lihue, Hawaii; many nieces and nephews; brothers-in-law, Mike Sosinsky (Sharon), Wonewoc, Wis., and Tim Sosinsky, Wonewoc; sister-in-law, Diane Felch, Westby; goddaughter, Jamie Preuss Morrison, Eaton, Colo.; and many dear, dear friends.
Friends may call for visitation and a time to share with the family from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14, at Picha Funeral Home in Hillsboro, with funeral services held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, at the Hillsboro Wesleyan Church. Private graveside services will be held at a later date.

So sorry about Judy's passing. Totally by chance that I came across the obituary tonight. Judy and I worked at Hillsboro's hospital in the early 70's. Gee, such a looooong time ago, measured by so much life stuff happening with both of us. There was a day or two that my 2yr old car wasn't going anywhere. As nice as Judy was, she'd stop in Elroy from Wilton (I think) and pick me up on the way to us going to Hillsboro hospital for our shift and then do the reverse late that night. Sure appreciated her offer to do that. We even talked about the ambulance service waaaay back then. The world is definitely lacking with Judy gone.

Terry: So sorry to hear about the loss of your wife, she was a great lady and a bit of a tomboy when she was younger.
Larry: I'm sure you and your family will miss her too. I remember how you used to pick on her and she would give it back to you, always laughing.
