Judy Ann DusoldJudy Ann Dusold (nee Schirripa) Judy, who at the age of 95, went to heaven and met up with her husband Gilbert, on Friday, March 1, 2019. This day was her husband's birthday. Judy was a resident of Hartland Terrace for the last three years battling Dementia/Alzheimer's. Before living at Hartland Terrace, she was a Waukesha resident for most of her life. For some time, she was a member of St. Joseph's Catholic Church where she married. Later, she became a member of St. Williams Catholic Church. At the age of 19, she enlisted in the U.S. Navy during World War II. She was a dispersing clerk working alongside Navy men on paperwork and other clerical tasks. She enjoyed navy life for two years. Her fianc at the time was in the U.S. Army. When their tours were over, they married in August of 1945. They went to Wisconsin Dells on their honeymoon, but decided to come back to Waukesha after hearing that the war was over. They wanted to celebrate with family and friends. Judy was a hostess for many years at the Marriott Hotel in Brookfield and at the Western Racquetball Club. She enjoyed meeting people form all over the world and loved her jobs at both places. She met many interesting people and made a variety of new friends. Judy loved to travel. When her oldest daughter Judy Ann was in Europe with her military husband, she went overseas quite frequently. She was in Finland, Germany, Italy, France and England. She also loved traveling to Florida, California and Las Vegas. As she got older, her traveling days slowed down and she became busy with enjoying grandchildren and her grand-dog Brutus. Judy and her companion Bob would go over to her youngest daughter Diane's house quite often and help with the produce stand, greet customers and hang out with Brutus. She just had a gift to gab, she loved life and she loved people. She was born on the 4th of July, so she had many family parties at her middle daughter Christine's house. She always had a special birthday party, big or small. Judy is survived by her three daughters; Judy Ann Wetzel, Christine (Ruben) Ojeda and Diane (Michael) Otto. She is further survived by six grandchildren; Ruben Gilbert (Tracy) Ojeda, Monica (Paul) Duerwachter, Nicole (Robert) Garcia, Joey (Becca) Otto, Theresa (Tony) Araujo and Brandon Otto. Judy also has ten great-grandchildren; Lauren Parkins, Taylor and Haley Ojeda, Evan and Mason Duerwachter, Angelica Otto Garcia (Jordan Zudyk), Aaliya Otto Rivera, Taleah, Tristan and Tessa Araujo and her sister-in-law Margie Schirripa. Robert "Bob" Kirschner was Judy's companion for thirty plus years. They kept each other company, visiting Diane's farm and helping with many tasks. They kept Brutus the golden retriever company. Bob will miss Judy terribly. Judy was preceded in death by her husband Gilbert Peter Dusold, her son-in-law Colonel William Wetzel, her grandson William "Billy" Wetzel, her parents Patsy and Gaetana Schirripa, her brother Frank and sister-in-law Geneva Schirripa, her brother Armondo and sister-in-law Arlene, her brother Dewy Schirripa, her sister Nora Murphy and her sister-in-law Barbara. Judy's service will take place on Monday, March 11, at ST. WILLIAM'S CATHOLIC CHURCH, 440 N. Moreland Blvd., Waukesha, Wisconsin. Visitation will be from 9:30 AM until 12:15 PM, followed by the Mass of Christian Burial at 12:30 PM. Burial will take place at St. Joseph's Cemetery in the Mausaleum with military honors. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations to the Waukesha Humane Society and St. Jude's Children's Hospital. Judy loved animals and children and this would make her happy. Purple, the color of loyalty and magic, was Judy's favorite color. If you have some purple in your closet, feel free to wear it to her celebration. That would put a smile on her face. We would like to extend our gratitude and thankfulness to Hartland Terrace Assisted Living for the excellent care our mother received in the three plus years there.

Judy had a full and an amazing life, born on the 4th of July in 1923. She was a firecracker and she enjoyed life to the fullest. We know she is happy and with family in heaven now. She was asleep for awhile and now she is awake with the Lord. " We love you, we will miss you, but you will always be in our hearts, until we meet again, 'Blue Eyes'."
