Judith Kintzle photoJudith Kintzle, 72, was welcomed into the arms of The Lord surrounded by her family on August 6th, 2014, after a long courageous battle with cancer.  Judith was born in Dubuque, Iowa, to Fred and Dorothy (Koppes) Schuster on August 24, 1941. She graduated from St. Martin’s High School in Cascade, and attended Clark College in Dubuque.

Judy was also the Director of Religious Education at St. Mark’s Church in Edgewood for 10 years.

Judy was a devoted mother and wife who enjoyed her flower gardens, traveling, the red hat ladies, the casino, and her and Joe’s card club with their close friends of 52 years. Judy’s grandchildren brought her much joy and she was proud of their accomplishments.
