Judith A. Sobeck

April 21, 1951 ~ September 16, 2022 (age 71)



Judith A. (Budnick) Sobeck, age 71, of Winona, passed away on Friday, September 16, 2022, at the Gundersen Health System Hospital in La Crosse, WI. 

Judy was born April 21, 1951, in Winona to Stanley and Shirley (Ciszak) Budnick, and graduated from Winona Senior High School, class of 1969.

Following her high school graduation, she attended nursing school earning her LPN Certificate.  She then married David Sobeck, and they later divorced.

Judy grew to become a healthy independent person who took pride in her home, beautiful flowers, and gardening.  Some may remember her proudly driving around town in her dad’s old red pickup truck.  Judy worked at various places in Winona, but her favorites were in health care or working with animals.  Until her illness, she was a cashier at Fleet Farm.  She had an infectious smile and laugh.  Many of her customers would wait in her line just to share a moment with her to brighten their day.

Judy was very thankful for her fellow supporters who also believed in a higher power.

Judy was preceded in death by her parents, Stanley and Shirley Budnick; and her brother, John.

Judy is survived by her siblings: Susan (Paul) Cravens, Elk River, MN; Bruce (Mary Schneider) Budnick, Winona, MN; Bob (Kendra) Budnick, Minnesota City, MN; and Penny (Dan) Beyers, Goodview, MN; a niece and nephews; as well as her beloved cat, Andy.

Judy will live on in all of the hearts she touched.

Visitation will be held from 10 AM until services at 11 AM on Saturday, October 8, 2022, at the Watkowski-Mulyck Funeral Home, 376 E. Sarnia St., Winona.  A private family burial will follow.
