Judith M. Graff

February 20, 1953 — February 19, 2020

Judith M. Graff (nee Winkelman) passed into eternal life Wednesday, February 19, 2020 at the age of 66 as a result of ALS. “Cool Jude” to those that knew her best was the daughter of a farmer born February 20, 1953 to Ralph and Marcella Winkelman. Never venturing too far from Hartland, she attended Arrowhead High School and married Robert Graff on April 11, 1981.
Judy will be remembered for her faith in the Lord and living a simple life in service to others never asking for anything in return. She gave countless hours of her time cooking and baking for others at church and at school and by supporting local charities with the fruits of her labor. In her free time when she wasn’t taking care of her family, she enjoyed reading, puzzles, and watching classic TV and game shows.

She is survived by her beloved husband of 38 years Bob and her loving children Mark, Jeffrey, Katie and Kallie. She is further survived by 2 brothers, 8 sisters, and too many nieces, nephews, and friends to possibly list. She was preceded in death by her parents Ralph and Marcella.
Visitation will be held on Saturday, February 22nd at Zion EV Lutheran Church, 415 W Capitol Drive, Hartland from 9:00 AM until Funeral Services at 11:30 AM. Her final resting place will be in Hartland Annex Cemetery.

Judy was diagnosed with ALS 4 years ago. These were trying times for Judy and her family, but the experience provided her and her family the opportunity to build stronger relationships and meet some truly wonderful people. Her family wishes to extend a special thanks to all of those that served her, the Froedtert and Medical College ALS providers, and the Aurora Summit ICU team. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter (www.alsawi.org) or to a charity that Judy personally supported, Tomorrow’s Choice Family Resource Center (www.tcfrc.com).
