Judy C. Stewart Boss, age 39 of Burlington, died on Sunday, August 14, 2011 due to an auto accident. She was born on December 5, 1971 in Elkhorn, the daughter of Lawrence and June (Raatz) Boss. She was married to James Stewart. She was a previous member of Sugar Creek Lutheran Church, then of Emmanuel UCC in Walworth. Judy often volunteered at Fontana School, and was fondly thought of as the neighborhood mom who was always there when anyone needed her. She was a motivator to all kids that knew her, helping them to accomplish things in their lives. Judy was young at heart, and often said 'I may get older but I'll never grow up.'
Judy is survived by her three sons: Johnathan Boss of Lake Geneva, Devin Boss, currently serving in the U.S. Army stationed in Ft. Benning, GA, and Zachary Stewart of Burlington; her parents, Larry 'Swede' and June Boss of Delavan; brothers: LeRoy (Renee) Boss of Bristol, WI, Lynn Boss of Delavan, and Lyle (Stephanni) Boss of Elkhorn; and sister, Joyce Boss of Delavan. She is also survived by aunts, uncles, other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her grandparents and half-brother, Mike Papke.
A celebration of Judy's life will be held at 3:00 PM on Thursday, August 18, 2011 at Monroe Funeral Home in Delavan, with Rev. Elizabeth Hazel officiating. Visitation will be on Thursday from 12:00 noon until time of service at the funeral home. Burial will follow at East Delavan Cemetery. If desired, memorials may be made to the family.
