On December 16, 1937 a beautiful daughter was born to Albert and Margaret Wieland. They named her Judith Lynne. Judy and siblings Tanya and Mike grew up on Saginaw Bay and the ski slopes of Sylvan Knob, which her father Al and friend Lynn Meade carved out of the forest one hill at a time.
She played basketball and drums in Pinconning High School, then attended the MSU nursing program where she and seven ladies immediately bonded and became lifelong friends. One day Judy and her cousin were at a pool and a child told her “the lifeguard wants to know your name.” “Tell the lifeguard he can ask me” she replied. Thus began one of earth’s greatest love stories.
Judy and Bill married and welcomed four children; Kathryn Lynne, Steven Michael, David William and Debra Eileen. They took in their own niece René after she lost her parents. They loved 13 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.
Judy was totally devoted to Bill and family. Their door was always open, the atmosphere warm, plates and glasses full. Her array of Christmas sweets were legendary, as was her strawberry jam and famous brownie cake.
She was a loyal friend, baby whisperer, hand holder, jigsaw puzzle queen, deer tracker, venison packer, pasty maker, sale shopper, fryer of Bill’s fish, and loud armchair referee. She skied for many years with her dad, brother, and friends. Judy was the family photographer, sun tea maker, and answered to Bill’s affectionate bellow “JUDE!!”
She loved winters in Florida with Bill and son Steve, and sports of all kinds. She hunted morel mushrooms with a stick to uncover the snakes she despised. She loved the color red, dancing, music, the sun, birds, reading, playing cards, flowers, and laughter. She sewed, quilted, cross stitched, and could knit anything.
May 3, 2023, Judy left this world to dance with her beloved Bill, polka with her brother Mike, and visit with all her loved ones that left before her.
We, her children, miss her presence but celebrate her life and her legacy of family and love.
Should one feel a need to donate in her memory, please consider St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. She was always very appreciate that her children and grandkids were healthy.
