Judith A. Blaeser, nee Howarth, 61, of Libertyville, passed away Aug. 27, 2013 at her home with her family by her side.
She was a lifetime Libertyville resident, attending St. Joseph grade school in Libertyville, Libertyville High School, and University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Judy was a selfless mom who devoted her life to her family and also those in need. She was a successful businesswoman who was one of the first women to hold a managerial position at Baxter. She was a very devoted employee of both Solar Biologicals and Paradigm Diagnostics. Judy had a great sense of humor but above all, she was a best friend to all and will be dearly missed.
Judith is survived by her devoted husband Gary of 34 years of marriage; her adoring children Jessica, Jonathan and Ashley; her much-loved brother and sister Richard Howarth Jr. and Patricia Jensen. She was preceded in death by her beloved parents Richard Sr. and Gertrude Howarth.
