Judith Ann (Hurda) Luehmann died at her Star Prairie home on May 10, 2020. She was 79.

She was born Dec. 1, 1940, during a snow storm in Amery to John and Harriet (Jensen) Hurda. She grew up in various homes in the Roberts area while her mother was hospitalized. She had very fond memories of the time spent with neighbors and friends.

Judy held many jobs over the years, Jor-gas, Pine Lake, Little Falls and Star Prairie stores, CRA, and sold Avon. We often joked that she was her best customer.

Judy loved her Lord and was a very faithful servant to West Immanuel Lutheran Church. Judy dedicated her life to volunteering and was involved with many organizations, 4-H, Cedar Lake Homemakers, Community Club, and reading programs, AMI, West Immanuel groups and many others.

Judy had a very giving heart. She was willing to give second chances and helped those who needed assistance to the right path.

She enjoyed reading, NASCAR races after church on Sunday, and music of all kinds. Judy was also known for sending birthday and greeting cards to brighten your day.

She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Harriet Hurda; son, Randy; in-laws, Edgar and Gladys Luehmann; brother-in-law, John Denucci; and niece, Anna Marie Denucci.

She is survived by her husband, Arlen; daughters, Shelley (Roger) Lehman, Renee (Al) Fehlen, Shari (Mike) Erdman; grandchildren, Dustin, Jessica, Amanda, Nick, Joe, Brandon, Brett and Raeann; great-grandchildren, Zane, Wren, and Soren; sister, Janet Denucci; nephews, Chuck Denucci, Chad Denucci, Mick Luehmann; niece, Wendy Bartlett; and many other relatives and friends. She will be remembered as “Gramma Judy” to many.

A family funeral was held May 15 at the Luehmann farm in Star Prairie. Interment will be in West Immanuel Lutheran Cemetery.
