Beloved wife of the late Norval. Loving mother of Elin (Gerardo), Anita, and Norman (Mary). Proud grandmother (“Besta”) of Christopher (Katy), Kristin, Elizabeth and Andrew and great grandmother of Kelsey, Maddie and Ellie.

Judith was born in Norway on March 2, 1932 to Anton and Hilda (nee Nesse) Eide. Judith emigrated from Norway to the U.S. in 1955.

Judith was a beautiful woman inside and out, and she will be greatly missed.
