Judith (Judy) Euleene Stueber

Allouez - Judith (Judy) Stueber (née Sorensen), age 79 passed away after a long battle
with Alzheimer's on Friday, December 15, 2023, at Wyndemere Memory Care in
Allouez, Wisconsin.  

Judy was born March 14, 1944, on Washington Island, Wisconsin to the late Glenn and
Euleene (Smith) Sorensen. Her childhood was a life of adventure living in Arizona,
Oregon, and finally back to Institute, Wisconsin on her parents’ dairy farm. She
graduated from Sevastopol High School in 1962.  She left for college in Arizona and
returned to Wisconsin. She attended Door-Kewaunee County Teachers College in
Algoma. She met her dream man Lee Stueber at Worley’s bowling alley in Sturgeon
Bay and her life totally changed.  After only dating for 3 months, they married on
October 15, 1966, at Bay View Lutheran Church in Sturgeon Bay.  They were married
for 46 years before his passing.

In 1968, Judy and Lee moved to Green Bay, purchased their first home, and brought
home their first of eight children. Judy raised her young family while balancing work at
the Green Bay Canning Company.  Then once the eldest started school she went back
to college at the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay graduating with a Bachelor of Arts
in Human Biology in 1977. Judy began working in 1978 at the Brown County Crisis Line
and stayed with the program for over 14 years.  After leaving the Crisis Center, Judy
dedicated herself full time to fostering children in their home, first becoming licensed
back in 1969. Over a span of 32 years, they had one more child, adopted six with the
first one in 1969, and fostered 350 children. After leaving foster care work, Judy again
returned to college and graduated in 2004 from Northeast Wisconsin Technical College
with a Practical Nursing degree at the age of 60.  At the time, she was the oldest person
to graduate from that program. She worked for the next ~7 years with Home Instead
Senior Care providing assistance to seniors in their homes. Judy’s joy was caring for
others and giving her all to those she loved.  

Judy enjoyed singing (especially Yankee Doodle Dandy and She’ll Be Coming Round
the Mountain), bowling, playing cards, crossword puzzles, reading, square dancing,
traveling, camping, hosting parties, rescuing racoons, listening to music and NPR (radio
was always on), helping with various church activities, and taking care of her
grandchildren and pets.  

She is survived by her eight children, Kari (Mac), Jason (Mary), Christian (Blake), Gina,
Sue, Elizabeth Ann, Tanya Sue, and Jason Edward Matthew; her grandchildren, Jane,
Madeline, Rae, Zada, Seth, Gavin, Nathaniel, Jorja, Breanna, Andrew, Nadia, Lincoln,
Luna, Samual; as well as three great-grandchildren.  She is further survived by her
sister Swanee (Lancing) and sister-in-law Margaret, as well as various cousins,
nephews, nieces and other extended family members.

She is preceded in death by her beloved husband Lee, her parents Glenn and Euleene,
her brother Don, mother-in-law Lillian, father-in-law Lawrence, nephew Evan, grandson Quinn,                                                multiple pets to include her beloved dog Pebbles, and other extended family members.

For the last three and quarter years, Judy shared her kindness and singing voice with
the Wyndemere Memory Care team. She would tell many "I love you".  The family would
like to thank the caring staff at Wyndemere and the Moments Hospice care team,
especially Savannah and Jasmine, for their support.
