Judie Clausen

April 28, 1941 - May 11, 2023


Judith Ann Clausen was born on April 28, 1941 to Elmer and Frieda (Hansen) Andresen in Battle Creek, Iowa. She was baptized on July 6, 1941 and later confirmed her faith on May 29, 1955 at St. John Lutheran Church in Battle Creek, Iowa. Judie received her education from Battle Creek High School and graduated with the class of 1959. Following high school, she worked at McGuire Auction in Holstein.

Judie married Donald Clausen on August 3, 1963 at St. John Lutheran Church in Battle Creek. The couple made their home in Schleswig and were blessed with the birth of three children: Shelley, Stacey and Scott. Judie took on in-home babysitting after she became a mother, which she enjoyed very much. She then decided to start working outside her home and was employed by Farmer's Mutual Insurance Company as the secretary. It was no secret that when you saw Judie, you saw Don. The couple remained best friends from the first day they met. They were filled with joy every day they were able to spend together and they were thankful that they were able to retire at the same time.

Judie was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Schleswig. In her younger years, you could find her dancing, bowling and golfing. She spent a few years teaching Sunday school. She loved her weekly Bridge card club with friends. Judie was an avid Iowa Hawkeyes fan. One of her favorite pastimes was riding in the golf cart with Don at the Schleswig Golf Course. Above all, she appreciated spending time with her family. She especially cherished being a grandma and great-grandma.

Judie passed away at her home in Schleswig on Thursday, May 11, 2023 at the age of 82 years and 13 days.

Judie was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Norman "Gail" Andresen; and sister, Patricia Bock. She is survived by her husband of 59 years, Don Clausen of Schleswig; three children: Shelley (Rod) Segebart of Gowrie, Stacey Dimig of Schleswig, and Scott (Amanda) Clausen of Omaha, Nebraska; eight grandchildren: Derrick Dimig, Alyssa Dimig, Dylan Dimig, Miranda Segebart, Marissa Segebart, Arrick Clausen, Holden Clausen, and Ashtyn Clausen; six great-grandchildren: Kyza, KieLee, Rhett, Lux, Antonio, and Atlee; and many other relatives and friends.
