Our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, daughter, sister, and aunt Judy Wiseman Krause passed away Wednesday, April 27th, 2022 at her home in Midvale, Utah. She was born August 30th, 1949 in Salt Lake City to Reva Stewart Wiseman and Donald Thomas Wiseman, and was the first of five children. Judy married Keith Krause on June 12th, 1971 and they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last year. Most of her working life was spent with Smith’s supermarket as a meat wrapper and later as a deli manager.
Judy’s passion was her family- she was a supportive & loving spouse, a nurturing & comforting mother and grandmother, she adored & admired her mother, and she was a mother hen & good friend to her brothers.
Anyone who crossed paths with her could testify her kindness was her greatest gift. She always had a hand to lend, a shoulder to cry on, and a big momma bear heart. She had a warrior spirit. Despite the health challenges she had over the years, she fought valiantly even when the odds were stacked against her. The nickname “Wonder Woman” was well deserved.
As a young adult she enjoyed riding motorcycles, bowling and crafting. She cleaned the house on Saturdays with The Beatles, Meatloaf, & Bonnie Tyler playing - so the whole house was full of music and the smell of ammonia. Later in life she kept her mind sharp with puzzles, games and cards. She also watched her two tv shows, Alone and Wipeout, religiously. When asked, she would tell you her favorite things were camping and fishing with her family. If she had it her way Joe’s Valley, Mill Hollow, and Vernon Reservoir would be her second homes in the summer.
Judy is survived by her husband Keith; her four (4) children Jenifer (Monte), Ron (Carol), Shelley (Adam), and Eric. As well as her stepson Rick (Suzanna). Her grandchildren: Zach (Kylie), Patrick, Brady, Chase (Anna), Jayden, Eli, Mason, Deven, and Julia. Her great-grandchildren; Adelynn and Aiden. As well as her mother, Reva, her two brothers Jay (Barbara) & Jim. With many nieces and nephews who loved her.
Preceded in death by her father Donald, her brother Jerry (Lauri), and her sister Jill.
She is already dearly missed.
