Vielbig, Judith Claire - Ventura  
Judith Claire Vielbig Ventura, CA Judy left us April 26 at home surrounded by 14 family members and friends singing hymns to her ? just what she liked. She had valiantly battled her cancer for two years even riding a tricycle until the last few months. Judy was born into a farming family outside of Lincoln Nebraska on December 15, 1935. To enable her to attend Nebraska Wesleyan University her father covered initial tuition by selling a pig. She came out to California in 1957 with a group of other Midwesterners as brand new school teachers. The kids refer to them as "The Covered Wagon Gang". She and husband Les met in Anaheim and were married there July 2, 1960. To describe what her 52 year life in Ventura accomplished is beyond what can be listed here. She was a firm believer in the social gospel of Jesus and practiced it. Judy's work in the church and in the community served as a witness to her strong faith. You in the community who worked with her can testify to this. She is survived by husband Les, children Eric (Shonda) and Laura Nilsson (Pelle), five grandchildren and 3 siblings, Sharon, Mary-Margaret and Bill. Her son Joe and her parents Leroy and Marjorie Cook preceded her in death. She also leaves behind more than 100 of her "closest personal friends" A Celebration of Judy's Life will be held at First United Methodist Church, 1338 E. Santa Clara Street, Ventura 93001 on Saturday, June 20, 2015 at 10 am. In lieu of flowers you may send your gift to First United Methodist Church Endowment Fund or to Project Understanding, PO Box 25460, Ventura, 93002 Arrangements are under the direction of Coast Cities Cremations.
