JUDITH A. SUNDERMEIER
Judith A. Sundermeier, age 74, of Perrysburg, Ohio, passed away Saturday, February 29, 2020, in her home, from a nearly 30 year battle with multiple sclerosis. She was born April 25, 1945 to Ernest and Zelma (Brickner) Stolzer.
Judy graduated from Perrysburg High School in 1963 with best friends Donna, Becky, Kay, Carolyn and Linda, all of whom along with their spouses or boyfriends, would be the founding members of “The Card Club.” She married her husband, Jim, in 1967, at St. Rose Parish, where she was a life-long member, serving many years on Parish Council and working with the Girl Scouts. As an independent sales person for Home Interiors and Gifts, Judy enjoyed traveling to homes all over northwest Ohio to provide inhome decoration sales and demonstrations. When not tending to her own home, she could be found watching and buying from QVC and Gem Shopping Network. An avid reader, Judy enjoyed many trips to Way Public Library to find a new mystery novel or even one she read a time or two before.
Judy is survived by her husband of 52 years, Jim; daughter, Angie Gabor of Perrysburg; sons, Eric (Jayme) of Peoria, Arizona, and Andy of Perrysburg; grandchildren, Hannah, Sarah and Jonah Gabor of Perrysburg, and Jazmine Pewnew and Abby Sundermeier of Peoria, Arizona. She also is survived by brother, Johnny (Vicki) Stolzer of Perrysburg; brother-in-law, Darry Launder of Whitehouse, Ohio; sister-in-law, Barb Schnable of Deshler, Ohio, and cousin, Mary Jo Davey of Perrysburg. She was preceded in death by her parents; grandson, Noah Gabor; sister, Suzy Launder, and brother-in-law, Don Schnable.
