Judi Ann Gottwalt was born Aug. 4, 1951, in Little Falls, the daughter of Lawrence and Irene (Doble) Gottwalt. She was united in marriage with Roger C. Young, June 2, 1973, at St. Joseph’s Church in Pierz. Judi worked as an administrative assistant for St. Cloud Ears, Nose and Throat Clinic for 40 years. She was a faithful member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church. Judi was full of life and seemingly infinite energy. Judi had an infectious laugh which enabled her to befriend anyone. Judi was a selfless, caring, hardworking person with a big heart. She loved taking care of her family and was proud of her two children and smiling grandchildren. Her paintings hung within her home that became her masterpiece. Her home was especially filled with the smells of delicious food; the color red, craft fair treasures and crystalline windows; the sounds of the vacuuming and scissoring coupons; and soft, well-groomed cats and clean sheets.
Judi is survived by her loving husband of 39 years, Roger of St. Cloud; children, Nathan (Sara) of Rochester and Sarah (Mark) Erickson of Sartell; four grandchildren, Charles Young (6), Aynsley Young (4), Sophia Erickson (2), Olivia Erickson (two months); mother, Irene Gottwalt of Sartell; sisters, Jeannette Stack and Karen Schloe of St. Cloud; and her Persian cat, Sophers.
She was preceded in death by her father, Lawrence.
Memorials are preferred to the Coborn Cancer Center in St. Cloud.
Special thank you to Dr. Hillary Ufearo, Deb Corrigan, the “Cathedral Moms,” Ear Nose and Throat Clinic co-workers and St. Cloud Hospital Home Hospice for all of the care and love given to Judi and her family.
