Judy A. Solberg, 76, of Osseo, passed away Monday evening May 11, 2020, at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire.
Judy Ann Solberg was born in Menomonie, WI to Ivan and Anna (Thompson) Webster on January 14, 1944. Judy was raised with her brother George near Boyceville, where she attended Clack School and graduated from Boyceville High School. Following her graduation she attended Luther Hospital School of Nursing in Eau Claire, and went on to become a registered nurse. With her degree she worked at the Osseo Hospital, Osseo Medical Clinic, and then at Midelfort Clinic in ENT and Reconstructive Surgery. When she retired, she was working at the Osseo Area Nursing Home. She was a certified Red Cross Nurse early in her career, and a longtime Lamaze co-instructor with her dear friend Margaret Lunde. She also worked as a hospice nurse after retirement.
Judy was united in marriage to Gary Solberg on Oct. 9, 1965, in Boyceville. The couple began their life together in Eau Claire before moving to Osseo in 1969. They were blessed with 3 children and had celebrated 49 years together before Gary passed away on March 9, 2015.
Judy enjoyed crocheting, quilting, making fleece blankets, and sewing gifts for family and friends. She loved going to craft shows and collected snowmen and gnomes. Her spiritual life was important to her as a member of Kings Valley Lutheran Church near Osseo. She was the president of the WELCA chapter and was happy to organize their primary fundraisers, the meatball supper and the charcoal chicken dinner. She loved to travel and never stopped learning. She took great interest in Webster genealogy and attended Webster Family Reunions in Boyceville and in Ashtabula, Ohio. In recent years she was a faithful attendee of granddaughter Kalleigh's concerts and grandson Jarrett's football games, and volunteered with the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Trempealeau County. She was a great cook and baker, and made sure her lefse-making skills were passed on to the next generations.
Judy will be deeply missed by her 3 children, Heidi (Scott Viar) Solberg-Viar of Milwaukee, Amy (Keith) Wampole of Fairchild, Brady Solberg (Amy Bolstad-Meimann) of Osseo; 2 grandchildren, Kalleigh Wampole and Jarrett Wampole; brother George Webster of Fall Creek; In-laws, Margaret and Donald Larson of Osseo and Robert and Caryl Solberg of Neillsville; and several nieces and nephews. She had innumerable friends along her life's journey, and she treasured them all. She will also be missed by her beloved daytime companion "grand-pup," Kipper.
In addition to her husband, Judy was preceded in death by her parents; her mother- and father-in-law, Doris and Raymond Solberg, and Doris' second husband, Milton Engebretson; daughter-in-law, Keri Solberg; and sister-in-law, Rhonda Webster.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to Kings Valley Lutheran Church WELCA or the building fund, or the charity of your choice.
