Judith Eileen Ertelt


Judith Eileen Ertelt was born April 16, 1943, in Minneapolis, Minnesota to Norbert and Augusta (Krueger) Bergeron. As a young girl, Judy grew up in North Minneapolis and attended grade school at St. Bridget's. She graduated high school in 1961 from St. Margaret's. Judy then began working at Piper Jaffrey.  On September 21, 1971, she was united in holy matrimony to Michael Eugene Ertelt at St. Bridget's Catholic Church in North Minneapolis.  Judy and Mike then moved to rural Maple Lake where they have made their home since. Once Judy became a mother, she devoted her time to them and stayed home with James and Ann until they began school. Judy then worked in the office for St. Timothy's Catholic Church. Upon her retirement from the church office, Judy and Mike began their worldly travels. In her spare time, Judy enjoyed gardening, crafting,  and reading. She will be fondly remembered as an excellent cook and for baking her delicious pies. Attending Eucharistic Adoration was also very important to Judy. Her greatest treasure was the time she was able to spend with her family.
Judy is survived by her husband of 43 years, Michael of Maple Lake; children, James (Ashley) of Cincinnati, OH and Ann (Mike) Erickson of Otsego, MN; granddaughter,  Abigail Erickson; siblings, Robert (Sandy) Bergeron of Andover and Shirley (Frank) Berger of Bloomington; sister-in-law, Shirley Bergeron of Champlin; special niece, Vicky (Jerry) Bostrom of Minneapolis; and many nieces, nephews and other family and friends. She is preceded in death by her parents, siblings, Sherman (Joan) Bergeron, Carol (Ray) Kass, Jim (Arlene) Bergeron, Marlys (Paul) Baerwald, Dewey Bergeron and Barbara (Bud) Reynolds.
