Judith Schweikert
Nov. 24, 1939 - Dec. 9, 2013
Former resident of San Jose
Judith Butler Johnson Schweikert (Judi) passed away on Dec. 9, 2013, in Park City, UT. She was born Nov. 24, 1939, in Laconia, NH, to Carl and Florence Johnson. She is survived by her husband of 52 years, Daniel Schweikert; their three children: Eric, Karl, and Kristen Schweikert Humphrey; and their five grandchildren: Anne, Edward, Margaret, George, and Alden.
After growing up in Winthrop, MA, Judi earned a BA in English from Smith College and an MA in English from URI. Judi married Dan on Aug. 12, 1961. In the early years they lived in Mystic, CT, and Berkeley Hts., NJ. In 1980 they moved to Colorado Spgs., CO, where Judi was head of the CS Fine Arts Center volunteers.
In 1988 the family moved to San Jose, CA, where Judi earned an MA in counseling at SJSU and was Director of the Noyce Fdn. Scholarship program. She sang with the SJSU Chorale and the Santa Clara Univ. Chorale.
Judi and Dan moved to Park City, UT, in 2004, where she skied and volunteered at over a dozen organizations, including, as in most places she lived, church choir. Most recently she worked for the PC History Museum.
Services will be held at 2pm, December 13, at the Park City (UT) Community Church.

Peter and I are so shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of Judi. We have such fond memories of the times we spent with you in the tennis group in San Jose area. Judi was always our organizer and leader which I now understand when I read of all her accomplishments. I am so sorry now that we never got to Park City to see you but at least we had a visit here a few years ago. Please know our thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time. Fondly, Peter and Debbie Stern

The Winthrop High School Class of 1957 extends it's sincere condolences at the loss of our dear classmate. Judi was a shining light among us whether she was cheerleading or in the classroom. She came to our 50th reunion, still energetic and lovely. She will be greatly missed.

I am so sorry to hear of Judith's passing. Judy was always great to talk with. The first time I met her was when I was skiing with my Uncle Peter, Aunt Joann and my cousins Jonathan and Scott. We all had a great time skiing with Judy, Dan and Kristen. Other memories include visiting the family in Colorado Springs. Great fun exploring Manitou Springs caves and the Molly (something) gold mine. We also had a fantastic time camping near Monarch Pass. Later when the family moved to Santa Clara, I was able to visit. Again, a great time. Kristen had a '66? Ford Mustang. Judy suggested we explore Mt Tamalpais, go to Monterrey Aquarium...fond memories. The Chinese New Year parade in San Fransisco was absolutely unforgetable. Dan, thank you for all the fun I was able to share with you and your wonderful family. Peace and love to you and your family this holiday season. Tim Monsarrat, 58 Full Circle Glastonbuty, CT 06033

We are saddened by this terrible news. We really enjoyed the time we spent with her. She was a vibrant fun loving person and the two of you seemed to be having such a great time together. As Nancy said "This is a shocker". Our deepest sympathies to Dan and the rest of the family whom she cherished and enjoyed so much.

We were devastated to hear of Judi's sudden passing. Judi welcomed us into her circle of friends with open arms and made our lives so much richer. We will miss her conversation, perception, laughter and enjoyment of the many activities in which she participated. Judi often talked of her family, children and grandchildren and she loved them dearly. Our thoughts and prayers are with them and especially with Dan at this sad and difficult time.

Words can not describe the tragedy of loosing Judy. She was so full of life, so busy. Judy was unfailing upbeat, kind and generous. Dan, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your children..

I first met Dan and Judie in the mid 1970's at a CANDE meeting at Bishop's Lodge in New Mexico. Right away I noticed Judie's brilliant smile and love of life. Through the years Bryan and I met up with Dan and Judie at many conferences all over the USA. We took some trips together to Natchez and to Mobile. We strolled the beach on Coronado Island, and went in search of Chartreuse at a monastery outside of Grenoble, France. I remember wonderful dinners - and a 40th anniversary party - when we all were living in the SF Bay area. Judie's effervescent spirit permeates these memories. She has been taken from us much too soon. We send Dan and the family our deepest sympathies on their loss. And we wish Judie Godspeed on her final journey.

Bryan and Kathy Preas

We are so terribly saddened by Judi's passing. We have been friends for over 50 years since we first met in Groton CT and have kept in touch despite many moves and relocations. Judi was such a bright, energetic, vital person. She will be deeply missed by her loving family and many friends. Our hearts go out to Dan and her children and grandchildren.

Fran and Vin Gallogly

We are stunned and heartbroken to lose Judi so suddenly. Please know that we loved and admired her and Dan dearly and see a large gap in our world from now forward. We have been dear friends with Judi and Dan since grad school about 50 years ago and then in New Jersey for many years and continued at a distance after that. The recent years in Park City have led to a special bond. She was always there to help a friend with her advice, her time and her chicken soup. We feel so badly for Dan on the loss of such a wonderful wife and companion for so many years. Our condolences as well to their children and grandchildren. She was a very special friend to us and to so many others and she will be sorely missed but widely and fondly remembered.

Art and Martha Pasker would like to express our sadness with the news of Judith passing. We sat across the table at the Jaguar Christmas Party December 5th. We so enjoyed your company. With your sweethearts singing talents and art knowledge we now know why you were the "winners of the Guess the Christmas Song Contest."
