Judith "Judy" Denison Obituary

Judith “Judy” Elizabeth (Roellig) Denison, 88, joined her Heavenly Father and husband on Thursday, November 23, 2023.

She was the only child of Grace Virginia (Hadley) and George Jay Roellig born on May 26, 1935, in La Crosse Wisconsin. Judy graduated with the class of 1953 from Central High School in La Crosse.  She married the love of her life, Donald H. “Stub” Denison, on January 16, 1954, in a small ceremony in Soldiers Grove Wisconsin.

Judy worked for her parents at their Sylvan Glen Supper Club as a teenager.  She also worked for many years at Monterey Mills and Panoramic Corp. in Janesville before moving to Coon Valley, WI upon retirement. Judy was a member of the Coon Valley Lutheran church and circle.  She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, fishing and boating with her husband, attending Bobby Vinton concerts, and playing Bunco.  Family and friends will always remember her for her love of seasonal and holiday decorating.

Judy is survived by her two sons, Rick (Barb) and Don Jay (Laurie) Denison; six grandchildren:  Jennifer (Mike) Bute, Dawn Wilson, Krista, Stephanie, Shawn (Sharon), and Brandon Denison; ten great-grandchildren; six great-great-grandchildren; and many extended friends whom she considered family.

Judy was preceded in death by her parents; paternal and maternal grandparents; husband; special Uncle Curly and Aunt Margaret Roellig; mother-in-law Alda Denison; father-in-law Donald A. Denison; brother- in-law Steven Ferrel; several aunts, uncles, and cousins on both family sides.

Per Judy’s request there will be no services.  A sharing time of memories may be planned at a later date.

In lieu of flowers the family request any monetary donations be given to the Coon Valley Fire and Rescue, The Coon Valley Lutheran Church, and the Bethel Butikk Food Pantry and Thrift Shop in memory of Judy.

The family of Judy would like to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to Tri-State EMS, Coon Valley First Responders, Vernon Memorial Healthcare E.R. and hospital staff, Aveanna Home Health, and Norseland Nursing Home for their professional care and comforting support during Judy’s illness and final hours.  A special thank you to Diane and Tom who were always there to help in any way 24/7.  Jan, Eric, Kris, and Tony whom were such a tremendous help in the 2018 flood.  Pauline for all her beautiful flowers over the years.  They always brightened Judy’s days.  Your loyal support and kindness and love has meant the world to Judy and her family.  May God Bless You All!
