In Memory of

Judy Marlene (Parli) Stueve

January 31, 1934 - March 29, 2019


Judy Marlene (Parli) Stueve died peacefully on March 29, 2019 while under hospice care at John Knox Village. She had been a resident of the Care Center since September 2017 due to complications from a stroke. A rosary will be prayed on Saturday, April 13 at Our Lady of Presentation Catholic Church at 9:30 am followed by a Visitation. A Memorial Mass will be held the same day at 11:00 am.

Judy was born January 31, 1934 in Axtell, Kansas to Ed and Marie (Wolf) Parli. A blend of her father, a farmer, and her mother, an artist, Judy was pragmatic and imaginative. She was a finance professional in her youth, an avid crafter, a devoted wife, a dedicated mother of five and a woman rooted in her faith. She was an active member of her church community, volunteering her time and talents to organizations such as St. Joseph’s Guild, Deacon Wives Ministry and Hospice House. She performed and served as Choir Director on several occasions making her aptitude seemingly endless. One of her last projects was knitting hats and scarves for Social Services and hospital NICU units. She was a woman steadfast in heart, faithful to Jesus and to her family.

Judy was preceded in death by her parents, her husband of 57 years, Joseph E. Stueve and brother, Ross Parli (Connie). She is survived by her sister, Betty Fenton, daughters Jane Fournier (Tom), Jean Hantak, sons Jerry (Carol), John (Trish), and Jim (Kay), 15 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, one great-great grandchild on the way and a wealth of nieces, nephews, cousins and lifelong friends. Keeping her large family connected was of utmost importance to Judy. Under her planning and direction, her children and their families gathered on biennial family vacations where bonds and memories were created, all transcending the bursts of time spent together. Her legacy is her family and she will be missed dearly.

The family asks that memorial contributions be made to JKV Foundation or Our Lady of Presentation Church, where Judy was a member for over thirty years.

Thoughts and prayers are with you Jane and your family. Sounds like a great and loving Mom. May she rest in peace!

I wish you and your entire family peace and wonderful memories to cling to at this time. Your mother was opposite of mine. She was so tall and a happy person. Mine was short and pensive with us. But they shared a great sense of humor and a love of the church. Prayers for her soul and your family. Dana

So very sorry to hear of your mothers passing Jane and prayers are being sent your way during this difficult time?

My Thoughts and prayers are with you guys ar this time. I have many good memories of Judy from I first met her in Macon before Jerry came to STS-that is reaching beak!.She was a loyal supporter and an enthusiastic sports fan. May she rest in peace, I will offer Mass for healing for you all.
With kind regards. Manus.

Our prayers for all the Stueve family. May a loving God grant her eternal happiness! Father Chuck Tobin

Peace and prayers to the family, remember the great dinners we had at your house. Judy and Joe were great influences on the diaconate community.

Jane and family,
We did not know your Mother … but the words in her obituary paint a genuine and considerate saint. My Dad would say “she got her reward in Heaven”. We trust that sure and certain knowledge will support you in you grief. With love to you.

I am deeply sorry for the passing of Judy Stueve. I knew her and Dcn Joe during my tenure at Our Lady of Presentation Parish. They were wonderful people. Please know I will say a Mass for Judy and keep the whole Stueve family in my prayers.

Father Charles N. Rowe
