Judy Collins, age 73 of Kimberly, passed away peacefully at her home on November 1, 2017. Judy was born on July 29, 1944, daughter of the late William and Gertrude (Sobiesczyk) Patrick. Judy will be remembered by all as a generous and kind soul, always willing to give of herself to others. In addition to her own children, she also cared for anyone who needed help in anyway – that’s just how Judy was. She enjoyed traveling and was also an excellent cook and master of the grill. She had a green thumb that worked both inside and outside, and she was an expert bargain hunter. She was a genuine soul, and everything she did had a purpose that was borne of love.
Judy will be missed by her children: Jim (Beth) Reinert of Hortonville, Tracy Kitterman of Kaukauna, Robert (fiancée Heather Gray) Patrick of Kimberly, Bill Seehawer of Texas, Tony (fiancée Sara Wyman) of Appleton, and Jenn Seehawer of Chicago. There are also seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Judy also has three brothers: Bill (Carol) Patrick of Appleton, Dick “Pat” (Fran) Patrick of Appleton, and Jim Patrick of Arizona; and three longtime and dear family friends: Bill Brouillard, Louie Kitterman, and Karen Baker.
Judy’s passing will leave a vacant place in many hearts, and all who knew and loved her will miss her generosity, kindness, and open heart.
