Obituary for Judith Ann Nufer

Judith Ann (McElhenie) Nufer (Judi), age 70, of Kalamazoo, Michigan passed away suddenly at home on Saturday, January 12th, 2019.
Judi was born on July 1, 1948 in Sturgis, Michigan to Ross and Lenore (Pinney) McElhenie.
She was a 1966 graduate of Sturgis High School, where she was a member of the Concert and Marching Bands. Judi attended Michigan State University and later Grand Rapids Community College, eventually becoming a Licensed Practical Nurse serving at Sturgis Memorial Hospital and Bronson Methodist Hospital. Judi loved children - volunteering and then working as a paraprofessional at Martin Luther King Jr. School in Westwood during the 1990s and 2000s. She was a loving and irreplaceable mother and grandmother who will be greatly missed by her friends and family.
Judi was preceded in death by her father (Ross, 2006) and mother (Lenore, 2015).
She is survived by her son, Corey, of Kalamazoo, who lovingly cared for her in the decade before her death, her daughter and son-in-law, Bethany and Clifford Hicks of Benton, Arkansas, her three grandchildren, Benjamin, Samuel, and Emma, and her brother and sister-in-law Richard and Amy McElhenie of Punta Gorda, Florida.
A graveside service and burial of ashes, followed by a gathering celebrating Judi’s life is being planned for 11:00am Saturday, June 29th at Oak Lawn Cemetery in Sturgis, Michigan.
