Judith A. Abramowicz
November 3, 1958 - March 5, 2022
Judith Ann Abramowicz, 63, Lublin, WI, and retired certified nursing assistant died peacefully with her family and friends by her side. Her hope and wish for a peaceful death at home was realized.
Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 12, 2022 at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Lublin, WI, with Father Vijay officiating the mass. Rosary will begin at 8:00 am and public visitation at 8:30 am. Burial will follow at St. Stanislaus Catholic Cemetery.
She was born November 3, 1958, grew up in Lublin and lived her full life in Lublin and Thorp, WI. She was a proud member of the Lublin community and St. Stanislaus Catholic Church where she generously donated her time and effort especially to the bake sales, annual bazaar, and upkeep of the church cemetery.
Family knew her as Doodle Bug or Doodler an endearing nickname given to her by her uncle that stayed with her throughout her lifetime. The name fit her perfectly.
Judy’s compassion and love of people called her into service to mankind. She received her certificate as a Certified Nursing Assistant and began her lifelong career of 35 years at Clark County Health Care Center in Owen, WI until her retirement in 2015. Through her dedicated service as a CNA, she brought comfort, peace, and healing to others.
Judy is survived by her brothers: Paul (JoAnna), Wayne (Tammie), David (Karen), Mark (Lori), John (Rachel), Keith (Jessica); and sisters: Linda, Debbie (Jeff), Jane, Susie (Richard), Betty Jo (Bryan), Mary (Jay) and sister-in-law Barb (wife of Edward) plus numerous nieces and nephews.
Judy was caring, kind, hard-working, giving, and most importantly fun and faithful. She was filled with kindness and grace and had a joyous sense of humor. She believed in doing the best of God’s work every day. She dedicated her life to giving to others and expected nothing in return.
Judy cared deeply for family, friends and her extended family, most notable her lifelong loyal friend and steadfast companion Todd Turenne. They shared a special bond built on unconditional love and trust.
Her heart was larger than the universe. She saw goodness in everyone she met and never judged anyone. Judy could see into the hearts of others, to empathize with them and be called to action on their behalf.
She simply loved life! She woke up early each day and lived each day to its fullest. She was not one to sit still. She was always eager to be out and about exploring and doing things. Her favorite place was to be outdoors among nature. She loved all flowers and all plants. She had a green thumb many of us would envy and devoted her home to her plant kingdom. She loved digging in the dirt and getting her hands dirty. Her garden was the envy of many.
She spent week-long vacations and extended weekends on a peaceful nature preserve, which was her sanctuary. She also enjoyed camping, away from technology and the bustle of life.
Family and her extended family were at her core from which she drew strength. She enjoyed baking, shaking dice and spending her time scouting for antiques, especially glass items.
Judy was a strong woman and classy in her unique way. She was an inspiring individual and taught others to believe in their abilities and strengths. She encouraged people to live their dreams, and that life is too short to wait. Her dream was simply to live a long life in her small home, which was her pride and joy.
Her parting words to all of us: I am who I am so it is what it is. I did it my way…to the end.
Judy will be dearly missed by family, friends, and extended family.
Judy was preceded in death by her parents Edmund and Rosemary Abramowicz, brother Edward Abramowicz, brothers-in-law John Kulesa Jr. and John McIntire, and niece Cassandra McIntire.
May her soul and all the souls of the faithful departed Rest In Peace.
