In Memoriam

Sister Judith Ann Seefeld, OP


I am very grateful to our loving God Who has caused great things to happen in the day-to-day little things of life.

My life is full. My feline friends, human friends and a vast ocean with beautiful sunsets are just a few of my many blessings. How I treasure each day and the gifts that God has bestowed on me throughout my life. How can I ever thank God for all that he has done in my life!

So concluded the autobiography written in 2001 by Sister Judith Ann (Judy) Seefeld who at the time was living in Monterey, California, and, although retired from her teaching ministry, was living an active life as a hospice volunteer.

Judy was born on July 20, 1939, in Pontiac, Michigan, to James and Charlotte (Higgins) Seefeld. James, originally from Pleasant Ridge, Michigan, owned his own refrigeration service business. He and Charlotte, from Clawson, Michigan, met and married after high school.

Seefeld Family, I am so very sorry for your loss. My family met Sister Judy at Queen of Angles church in Chicago.
Sister Judy was a great friend to my mother Ellen.

Our family remembers Sr. Judy very fondly as she was our youngest sibling's, Jane Sublewski Bandyk, Kindergarten teacher. She was such a joyful presence with big smiles every time we saw her. I loved that she always had little candy bars in the deep pockets of her habit to share. The 40 plus year friendship between Sr. Judy and our Mom was a beautiful one and I know they are rejoicing up in Heaven to be together once again. God Blessed all of us when she came into our lives. We extend our sincere condolences to all the family and friends who loved Sr. Judy as we did. Mary Ann Sublewski Nowicki - Oak Lawn, IL

Sister Judy and I were very good friends. I am the sister of Sister Noella and when visiting my sister Judith and I spent great times together. She took me to San Francisco and other places and we were like sisters. She will be greatly missed. Thanks to God for our friendship.
