Judith Lucille Johanning, age 81, of Plymouth died Saturday, Oct. 25, 2014 at her home.

She was born Feb. 23, 1933 in Plymouth, daughter of the late Robert and Emma (Katreh) Kleinfeldt.

She married Robert R. Johanning on Dec. 1, 1956, at St. John Lutheran Church in Plymouth.

Judy was a graduate of Plymouth High School, and a lifelong member of St. John Lutheran Church where she sang in the church choir for 68 years, and served faithfully with the St. John Ladies Aid.

Prior to her marriage, she worked for the Borden Co.

Judy loved gardening and cooking, but most of all she loved her animals. Judy was the one who operated the family dairy farm, caring for and nursing her animals to health. Her love for her animals was evident, seeing that she was still milking her cows at the age of 80.

Survivors include her husband, Robert of Plymouth; her seven children, Rhonda (David) Bohnoff, Mary (Michael) Gaynor, Ryan (Rose) Johanning, Barb (Jim) Iserloth, Ross (Shelly) Johanning, Scott (Kelly) Johanning and Jean (Michael) Schwabe; 22 grandchildren, and five greatgrandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Emma Kleinfeldt; a grandson, Daniel Gaynor; a great-granddaughter, Kaylin Jo Kahn; a brother, Orvin Kleinfeldt; and a sister, Regina Botsch.

Funeral services will be at 12 noon Saturday, Nov. 1, 2014, at St. John Lutheran Church (222 N. Stafford St.) in Plymouth, with the Rev. Nathan Meador officiating. Burial will take place on the Woodlawn Cemetery.

Friends may call at the church from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

A memorial fund has been established in the name of Judith L. Johanning for Sharon Richardson Hospice, The Wisconsin ALS Society, and St. John Lutheran Choir.

Schneider Funeral Home and Life Tributes is assisting the family.
