Judith Ann Klepsa

November 30, 1946 — January 1, 2022

Judith Ann Reiser was born to Ed and Barbara (Buchanan) Reiser on November 30, 1946 in Eldorado, Kansas. They moved to Hinckley, Minnesota in the early 1950’s where Judy attended Hinckley schools and was active in 4-H and church. Judy met her husband of 56 years, Joseph Frank Klepsa in Hinckley. After graduating Judy moved to the twin cities and worked at International Milling in downtown Minneapolis as an accountant.  Joe and Judy married on July 17, 1965. They moved to Brook Park in 1968 to raise a family. Judy also worked at Plastech Corporation in Rush City, the 4-H extension office in Hinckley and the Pine City Lakeside nursing home until she retired in 1996.

Judy devoted much of her time to her family. She enjoyed cooking, crafts, gardening and sewing. These skills were passed along to her children and grandchildren. Judy was active with the kids in 4-H, church activities and sporting events while they were in school. Camping was also a favorite of Judy’s. Judy and Joe would plan 4 -5 trips a year with Grand Marais being her favorite where they would trout fish. Judy especially enjoyed it when other family and friends were able to join them.
