Judith Corrinne Bradley, age 78, of Buffalo, MN passed away on Sunday, November 2, 2014 at Lakeside Oasis in Buffalo.

Judy was born on April 21, 1936 in Thief River Falls, Minnesota to Louie and Annie (Norberg) Anderson. She was the youngest of nine children (Alice, Rachel, Gladys, Howard, Norman, Eva, Carol, Lois, and Judy). She grew up on a farm in Middle River, Minnesota and attended District 64 one room school. She later enrolled in Saint Cloud State Teachers College (currently Saint Cloud State University), graduating in 1958. She taught math in Minneapolis after being rejected by the School Board as unqualified but accepted personally by the Superintendent of Schools. There are many stories illustrating her great passion for under dogs and seekers of all kinds.

She met her husband at a small diner in Minneapolis when Brian was a post-doc at University of Minnesota, St. Paul. It was (for one of them, not Judy) love at first sight. They married in 1968 and immediately moved to Cambridge, England, then moved to Colorado the next year and finally settled in the Baltimore, Maryland suburbs where they raised their family. Judy invested herself as a wife and a mother to her two children, Bert and Karla. Along the way she also worked in a Reform School as a small group leader, had a brief career in real estate (long enough to find a new house for her own family) and was valued as a private math tutor. Her talents included poet, artist, amateur theologian and lifelong partner to her best friend, Brian. She dearly loved her kids and four grandkids (Caroline, Eli, Noah and Svea).

We all miss her deeply but she has been released from several years of suffering and hospital tours. She never doubted the big plan, just frequently wondered about the details. God is good and loves us infinitely. Judy was ready for eternity.

Funeral services for Judy Bradley were held on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 at 11:00 AM at the Albion Free Church in Cokato.

A visitation was held one hour prior to services at the church.

Interment at Albion Free Church Cemetery in Cokato.

Casket bearers were Bert Bradley, Jan Eitel, Ross Munson, Dana Munson, John Holmquist and Steve Skadsberg.

The Peterson Chapel, Buffalo assisted the family with arrangements.
