Judith M. Hermanson

Ms. Judith Mae Hermanson was suddenly called into eternal life on Wednesday, December 16, 2020.
She was the loving mother of Wendy (Mark) Riehl and Brendan Sr.
Judy was the luminescent daughter of the late Clifton and Violet Hermanson.
She is survived by four beautiful grandchildren Sophia, Brendan Jr., Tiffany, Rene.
and preceded in death by one amazing grandson Warren.
She also has had the privilege to be blessed with one great grandson Mathias.
Judy was the passionate sister to three surviving siblings. Phyllis, Doraine, and Daniel. And preceded in death by four siblings Debra, Janie, Stephen, Bonita. She is also survived by two half sisters Sheila and Rita.
And many other great family members stretching far and wide.
Judy was a devoted and loving person who was passionate about life and laughter and took great pride in being a grandmother.
She was an amazingly strong woman with an intrinsic understanding of unconditional love.
She loved shopping with and for her grandchildren as well as for her grown children, Often showering them with small gifts as a token of her affection each time she saw them.
Judy took great pleasure in spending time with her good friends. Going out for lunch, getting dressed up for a show or event, or just sitting at the kitchen table playing cards. Drinking wine and eating cheese and crackers. She enjoyed laughing, and had a beautiful smile and charm that would light up a room with comfort and joy. When Judy wasn’t working or spending time with her friends or family she had a solid desire to enjoy the ever-changing seasons in Wisconsin, and all of its beauty. (Holy Hill in autumn was an annual event!)
Judy and her family would like to give a special thanks to the Lutheran Home and their outstanding staff for the care and attention they were able to provide for her during her many long years there battling MS.
Judy will be deeply missed by all who knew her!

A memorial visitation will be held at the FUNERAL HOME (6615 W. Oklahoma Ave. Milwaukee, WI 53219) on Monday, January 11, 2020 from 1-2PM followed by a service at 2PM.

    Judy’s perseverance through physical or emotional pain astounded me, Whether we were watching birds or playing a game with friends on Saturday mornings she was always ready for a new day.. Always her family was first and I was privileged to meet each of you., She “adopted” my grandsons and made them Judy-lovers, When she moved to Lutheran Manor and later, when I became unable, physically,,to visit there I really missed my friend..
    My prayers will continue to be with each family member. – may your hearts heal as I believe God has healed Judy from all her pain,

    And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death,, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain;”; Revelations 21:4,
