Judy was born on January 13, 1947 to Arthur and Loretta Gerhardt in New Prague, Minnesota. Through a marriage to Wiley Post, Judy was blessed with four children: Tammy, Kim, Susan, and Wiley (JR). That marriage was later dissolved.
Judy spent her career in the manufacturing industry working at Fabritech, New Richmond Ind, and CTS Baldwin. One of Judy’s passions was gardening. She grew everything from vegetables to beautiful flowers. Judy was also phenomenal in the kitchen, where she loved to cook and bake for her family. In her free time, she enjoyed watching movies, crocheting, doing puzzles, word finds, and various crafts. But there was nothing that Judy loved more than her family, including her 18 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.
Judy will forever remain in the hearts of her children: Tammy Post, Kim (Mike) Dubej, Susan Dusek, and JR (Emily) Post; grandchildren: Brandon (Kelly), Brady, Mackenzie (Leighton); Taylor, Parker, Kaleb; Mikaela (Jason), Derek (Bailey), Tanner, Logan, Gabriella; Rheanna, Izabella, Owen, Olivia, Karter, Julia; great grandchildren: Kaitlan, Seth; Corbin, Charlie, Cooper, Caylee; Eleanor; very special significant other, Lyle Nippoldt; brother Dale (Debbie) Gerhardt; sibling-in-laws Vicki Gerhardt, Sherry Walker, Luanne Gerhardt; nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
