Judith A. "Judy" Beussink Obituary
Judith Beussink

Judith Ann Beussink, nee Phillips, was born September 12, 1957, in Belleville, IL. After a three year battle with cancer, she passed away on May 15, 2018 at her residence in Millstadt, IL.

Judy was dedicated and committed to the Department of Defense, working 34 years to include positions in the US Army, US Air Force, and US Transportation Command. Her last assignment, with the US Army Strategic Deployment and Distribution Command, was especially demanding but very fulfilling. She wanted to thank her husband for scheduling and participating in many of the children's activities. When possible she arranged weekend excursions for her family to hike, and visit local museums and festivals. In 2016, she and her family were able to take a vacation to Newport Beach. She treasured the time spent with her husband and sons.

In the community, she served for a short time on the Scott Credit Union Board of Directors, was a member of the Civic Club and Sister Cities, and supported many fundraisers for her sons' activities when they were younger.

She was preceded in death by her father, Robert Phillips; father-in-law, Ernest Beussink; mother-in-law, Irene Beussink; brother-in-law, Kenneth Beussink; and many beloved aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Surviving are her devoted spouse, Edwin Beussink, her two loving sons, Brett and Joseph, her mother, Geraldine Phillips nee Morrison, two sisters, Beverly (Steve) Meister, and Cynthia (Jeff) Hettenhausen; a brother, Lawrence (Kathy) Phillips; brothers-in-law, Donald (Sheila), Duane (Kari), and Glen (Paulette) Beussink; and sisters-in-law, Donna Beussink and Elaine (David) Webb; many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews; and other extended family and friends.

Memorials can be made to the Harmony West End Neighborhood Summer Camp or the East Belleville YMCA LiveSTRONG Program for cancer survivors.

Services: A memorial service will be held 1 p.m. Friends may gather with the family from 11 a.m. until the time of the service on Saturday, May 19, 2018, at Valhalla Gaerdner Holten Funeral Home, Belleville.
