Obituary for Judy E. Klein

Judith Elizabeth Klein, 73, of Omaha, Nebraska, passed away peacefully at home on June 22, 2020.

Judy was born on April 29, 1947, the eldest surviving daughter of Francis and Marie Graeve of Earling, Iowa. She graduated from St. Joseph Catholic High School in 1965. In 1963, she met Gail Klein, who was the love of her life. They were united in marriage on August 27, 1966 and they were inseparable for close to 54 years. They had four children, Keith, Scott, Kristine and Shane.

Judy was a loving mother who always put others needs before her own. Being a wife, mother and grandmother were her proudest accomplishments. Judy had a strong love for the Catholic Church and blessed Virgin Mary. Judy enjoyed sewing, cooking, spending time at the cabin and going to her grandkid’s activities. Of all of the things Judy cherished in life, none was greater than her love of her grandkids. She made sure to attend every event possible to show her love and support. In addition, Judy loved playing Bunco with her Cedar Creek friends. Hand and foot was her game of choice as she found few that could out wit her, Gail of course might disagree. In the last few years, Judy volunteered at Tip Top Thrift Store. Gail and Judy loved to spend the month of February in Destin, FL with their close friends for the last 11 years. One thing for certain, Judy was happiest when surrounded by family. The family gathered around her to say good bye before God called her home. She was happy and at peace.

Judy was the most kind, loving, selfless, gracious person anyone had the privilege to know. We will miss her greatly.

Judy was preceded in death by her parents, Francis and Marie Graeve, sister, Janice and brother, Joseph.

Judy is survived by her husband, Gail Klein, her four children Keith (Michelle) Klein, Scott (Karen) Klein, Kristine (Bryan) Heilman, all of Omaha, Ne and Shane (Stephanie) Klein of Rosemount, MN. She also had eight grandchildren, Joshua, Jarrett and Jordyn Klein, Olivia and Emma Klein and Riley, Shelby and Clayton Heilman. She is also survived by her two sisters; Jane Skoumal and Donna Mae Erlbacher and 5 brothers; Don, Allen, Randy, Glen and Marvin Graeve.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to St. Stephen the Martyr Food Pantry or to the family for their intentions.
