Judy L. Matye, passed away on July 2, 2021 at her home in Cedar Grove surrounded by her family after a battle with cancer. She was 67 years old.
Judy was born on October 22, 1953 in Port Washington, the daughter of Elmer Vogel and Jacqueline (nee Thein) Heidenreich. She attended school in Fredonia. On November 12, 1983, she was united in marriage to Roger Matye in Random Lake. For almost 40 years, she ran a home daycare, and loved every second spent holding those babies, as well as her own children and grandchildren. She enjoyed tending to the flower gardens at her home. Whether it was jokes, silly photos, or crazy adventures, Judy loved to make people laugh. Her legacy will live on in the countless memories of laughter, smiles and celebrations she shared with loved ones. She was grateful for every day of sunshine she was blessed with and looked forward to her eternity in heaven.
