Judith A. (Banach) Weidemeier, 77, passed away Sunday, May 6, 2018 after a battle with uterine cancer and Alzheimer's disease for the past few years.
Born in Menominee, Mi., to John and Florence Banach, she was the first child in a family of five siblings, including Jack (Suzanne) of Frederick, Md., Chris (George) Vavrunek of San Diego, Ca., Jerry (Kate) of Poway, Ca. and Sue (Mike) Heurion of Marinette.
She married Barton Wiedemeier at St. John the Baptist Church in Menominee in 1960. She worked for Robert Shrank, CPA, in early years of their marriage. Bart and his father, Charles, owned and operated a custom woodworking business in Marinette for many years.
The couple moved to San Diego, Ca. in 1970 and then lived in Solana Beach, Ca., where he worked in the building trade industry until his untimely death in 1978 at age 42. She then raised her three young children alone and never remarried. After moving to Rancho Penasquitos, Ca. in 1988, she lived there until her health needed daily care and moved to Vista Del Lago, a Memory Care Facility in Escondido, Ca.
She enjoyed crossword puzzles, reading books, especially sentimental love stories and watching the Chargers' football games, "Dancing with the Stars," and her favorite, "Ellen". An excellent bread maker, she shared her bread with family friends and neighbors.
She was the mother of Daniel, Suzanne and Brandon and had four grandchildren.
Donations are appreciated in her memory to Alzheimer's San Diego, 6632 Convoy Court, San Diego, CA 92111.
