Judy M. Bolda, age 67, of McHenry, died Thursday, April 12, 2012, at Centegra Hospital – McHenry.
She was born August 31, 1944 in Chicago, to John and Louise (Krage) Turville. On October 5, 1974, she married James E. Bolda at St. Thomas Church in Crystal Lake.
A resident of McHenry since 1974, Judy had formerly lived in Round Lake for five years. She was employed by Continental Aluminum Co. in Lakemoor, Modine Mfg., and Brake Parts before joining PACE as a bus driver. After working at PACE for almost 10 years, she retired in 2007.
An avid gardener, she enjoyed tending to her large flower garden, and most recently, to her potted plants. She was passionate in her love and care of animals, from the strays she would care for, to the neighborhood ducks that greeted her upon arriving home, knowing they would be fed. She loved to cook and bake, and reading was a favorite pastime. A very giving and nurturing person, she often went out of her way to do special things for people. Judy was always there for people needing someone to listen. Extremely proud of her grandchildren, her family was her greatest priority in life and she will be dearly missed.
She was a member of The Church of Holy Apostles in McHenry.
Surviving are her husband of 37 years, Jim; daughters, Brandy (Brett Schindelar) Robe and Heather (Mike) Garlanger of Johnsburg, , six grandchildren, Christina (Mike) Janssen of Lanark, IL, Nick & Ashley Robe, both of Cary, Michael Jr., Isabella, and Sophia Garlanger of Johnsburg; two great grandchildren, Elizabeth and Brooklyn Janssen; a sister, Violet (James) LiChard of Lakemoor, IL; and a sister-in-law, Lorraine Turville of Salem, WI.
She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Jim H. Turville and Donald W. Turville, and a sister, Annie Lunsman.
