Judith Myrna Ferrell was born May 10, 1938 in St. Cloud, Minnesota to Russell and Marian (Strecker) Hart. Judy grew up in Annandale, where she also attended school. Following her high school graduation in 1956, Judy attended St. Cloud State University where she obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education. She briefly taught first grade in Mounds View. On June 21, 1959, Judy was united in marriage to David “Dub” Ferrell at Zion Lutheran Church. Their wedding was the first to be held in the present sanctuary. In addition to raising their 3 children, Judy worked alongside her husband, Dub, at various family businesses. She never held an official title in business, but she was the rock of the family.  Judy continued to remain a very active member of Zion Lutheran Church and the Annandale community. Always giving of her time, Judy spent countless hours delivering Meals on Wheels, sending cards to lift people’s spirits, volunteering in her grandchildren’s classrooms and attending their activities. She always made everyone she met feel special. Judy had an ongoing list of people she prayed for. If she told you she was praying for you, her prayers came from the bottom of her heart. In her spare time, Judy enjoyed reading, creating works of art through stained glass and searching for new tricks she could play on anyone who walked through the door. Judy’s greatest enjoyment in life came from her family, especially being grandma to her six adoring grandchildren.

Judy is survived by her husband of 58 years, David “Dub” of Annandale; children, Sue (Amanuel) Abeje of Minneapolis, Tim (Teresa) of Annandale, and Jon (Misty) of South Haven; 6 grandchildren, Samuel, Joseph, Christina, Nathan, Daniel, and Alexandra; sister-in-law, Carleen Hart; brother-in-law, Dana Ferrell; sister-in-law, Deedee Ferrell; nieces & nephews, Sarah & Josh Hart, Rick Anderson, and Keith, Kris, and Kim Ferrell. Judy was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Jim Hart.

Samuel and Joseph Abeje, Christina, Nathan, Daniel, and Alexandra Ferrell will serve as pallbearers. Rev. Ken Tatkenhorst will provide music for the service. Arrangements are entrusted to Dingmann Funeral Care Burial & Cremation Services of Annandale.
