Judith L. Hansen

Judith “Judy” L. (Whiting) Hansen, 70, of Clintonville, passed away Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017, at Kindred Hearts, Clintonville, after several years of battling cancer.

Judy was born in Jackson, Michigan on Oct. 16, 1947, to Edna J. (Poole) Whiting and the late Kenneth G. Whiting. As a girl, Judy grew up on the family’s small farm and had all of the great experiences that come with farm life. She attended Northwest High School, graduating in 1965, and was later employed by Walker Manufacturing in Jackson. Judy married Darrell Konopka in 1967; the couple then separated after a time. She later met and was united in marriage to John Bergquist in 1973 and the couple eventually settled in Hortonville. John passed away after a sudden heart attack in 1983. Judy later was set up on a blind date with Raymond Hansen and the two were married on June 14, 1986, at St. Martin Lutheran Church, Clintonville. She worked alongside her husband for many years at the Spur station, later called Ray’s Mobil, in Clintonville on South Main Street. Judy did much of the administration work at the station, but her favorite part was chatting with the customers throughout the day. She loved to attend her children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events, as well as simply spending time with them. Judy also had a love for shopping, all animals, and working in her flower beds when she was able. Judy will always be remembered for her radiant smile, and as a beloved mother, daughter, sister, grandmother and friend.

She is survived by her daughter, Valerie (Louie) DeJesus, Clintonville; son, Kevin (Stephanie) Konopka, Naperville, Illinois; mother, Edna Whiting, Jackson, Michigan; seven grandchildren; brothers, Gene Whiting, Zagreb, Croatia, and Geoff Whiting, Warrenton, Virginia; and special friend Wayne Bartz, Shawano.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Ray Hansen, and a son, Gregory Bergquist.

Funeral services were held at 2 p.m. Tuesday, November 7, 2017, at the Eberhardt-Stevenson Funeral Home & Crematory, Clintonville, with the Rev. Kurt Kluge officiating.

The family is most grateful to the staff of Kindred Hearts Assisted Living for the excellent care and kindness shown to Judy.
