Judith M. Schommer, “Jude,” born in Rochester, Minn. on April 12, 1944, peacefully passed away surrounded both physically and in love by her family on March 26, 2009.
After retiring from the St. Paul Public Schools following 27 years of teaching, Jude was able to focus more on her love of gardening while continuing to tutor children. She was an outstanding teacher, gardener and friend with an uncanny ability to foster growth and love in any environment. Her family, friends, students, birds and flowers have all been inspired by her love.
Per Jude’s request, no formal services will be held. In lieu of flowers, please take a moment to feed the birds or tend a garden.
Jude will be deeply missed, but her incredible kindness, humor and spirit will never be forgotten.
Arrangements were with Beebe Mortuary of New Richmond.
