Judith A. Dreher, 69

Judith A. Dreher (nee Lehmann), 69, of West Bend, was called home to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2010, at the Kathy Hospice in the town of Polk.

Judy was born on Sept. 30, 1940, in Menomonee Falls to the late Joseph and Norma (nee Neuy) Lehmann. On Nov. 26, 1960, she was united in marriage to Floyd Dreher at Immaculate Conception Church of St. Mary.

Judy was a loving, devoted wife. The most wonderful, mom, sister and best friend anyone could ask for. Judy loved spending time with her children and grandchildren. She loved it when they would come over and share their stories. Judy loved spending time at their lake home in Pelican Lake. She liked to fish, but most of all she liked it when her husband Fuzzy made her a great fish fry "yes, Dad it’s the best." Judy also liked spending time at the casino and playing bingo. Judy’s Christian faith was very important to her. When mom would hear that someone was sick, she would add them to her long list of people to pray for.

Judy worked for B.C. Ziegler as a mail clerk for many years. She enjoyed getting together with her friends from Ziegler for luncheons.

Many will miss Judy, she has touched so many hearts. Judy was too well loved to ever be forgotten. We will miss you and love you mom. Love your family.

She is survived by her husband, Floyd of West Bend; her four children, Jeff (Brenda) Dreher of West Bend, Lorie (Todd) VanLangen of West Bend, Debrah (fiancée, Brent Draheim) Dreher of Shawno and Tom Dreher of West Bend; eight grandchildren, Tanner Dreher, Braydee Dreher, Jason (Laura) VanLangen, Stacy (friend, Sandi Sable) VanLangen, Amber (friend, Paige Harris) VanLangen, Chad (friend, Liz Blewett), Cody (friend, Heather Elertson) Enright and Colton Dreher; two sisters, Joanne (Lawrence) Nischke of Cascade and Sandy (Tom) Zernia of West Bend; other relatives and close friends.

Judy was preceded in death by her parents and her son, Jim Dreher.

A Mass of Christian burial in remembrance of Judy will be held on Thursday, Sept. 23, at 7 p.m. at Immaculate Conception Church of St. Mary, 1610 Monroe St., West Bend with the Rev. Michael Moran presiding. Visitation will be at the church from 4 p.m. until the time of the Mass. Burial will be Friday at 11 a.m. in the New St. Mary’s Cemetery.
