Judy R. (Weber) Roose passed away peacefully at her home in Peoria, Iowa on May 28, 2023 at the age of 75. She was born June 18, 1947 in Sioux City, Iowa to Clifton W. Weber and Wanda R. (Pierce) Weber.
Judy was a devoted CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) for over 40 years, sharing her time between nursing homes, Hospice House of Des Moines and the Comfort House in Pella, Iowa. She was a kind-hearted person who loved taking care of others. Her patients appreciated her gentle touch.
In her moments of solitude, she found peace in the simple pleasures of life. The beauty of nature, gardening, reading a good book, the challenge of her puzzle books and the excitement of traveling to new places. Judy enjoyed wintering with Arvin in sunny Arizona. Each summer season one could find Judy surrounded by family canning the harvest of the gardens and teaching anyone who wanted to learn the canning process. Judy’s pickled beets and lime pickles were absolutely the best! Judy found great delight in her family of 3 daughters and 4 step children. She loved being a grandmother and great grandmother. One needed to only look at her face when in their company to see how much she loved them all.

Daughter Terri & Jack Markley
