Judith was born August 5, 1940 in Oregon Township, Ogle County, Illinois, the oldest child of John and Mildred (Jones) Dyer.

A year later they moved to Iron Ridge, WI, where Marion operated a mobile feed business and farmed. Judy was his bookkeeper, gofer, and helped wherever she was needed. Marion and Judy owned an apartment building for 20 years and a small laundromat for 9 years, both of which Judy managed and operated. In later years, she drove cars part-time for Ewald Ford in Hartford. Her hobbies were baking, reading, crossword puzzles, genealogy, and Iron Ridge history. She had an extensive collection of Iron Ridge historical information, postcards, and artifacts. She also enjoyed going to antique tractor shows with Marion.

Carol, Lance, and Family, Please accept our heartfelt sympathies...we can't even begin to imagine what you went through. What a scary and emotional roller coaster ride you were on. Our rational side knows our parents are aging and we will have to deal with their passing, however it is never easy, especially in times like yours where it went so quickly, as our hearts and souls have a hard time accepting them being gone. We pray your mom was able to experience her beautiful new great-grandbaby in the midst of all. Treasure your sweet memories, they will be forever in your heart and minds. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. Kevin and Audrey
