Judy was born the daughter of Stanley and Lyles (Rosin) Ojstrsek in Hartford, Wisconsin on July 26, 1950.
Judy was united in marriage to Dale Ravanelli on January 6, 1973. She was so proud they were able to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary together. Over the years, she worked at the Golden Knight Supper Club and West Bend Company before she started her farming career with Dale and their family. In her later years, she worked for the Hanke quarry before retiring in 2021.
After retirement, it was time to garden and smell the roses and enjoy some “Judy time”. She took great pride in making sure their farm was kept “just right”. You could often find her out mowing the lawn or gardening. Judy treasured the time she spent with her family and left a legacy that will be remembered and carried on by them.
Judy is survived by her husband, Dale, and their children: John (Carmen) Ravanelli; Dean (Shelly) Ravanelli; Tom (Jenny) Ravanelli; Tim (Lisa) Ravanelli; and Crystal Ravanelli; her grandchildren: Bryce Ravanelli; Brylee Ravanelli; Caleb Ravanelli; Dominick Ravanelli; step grandchildren: Joe Kmiec; Jenna Nice; Brooke Nice; her siblings: Jean (Russ) Westphal; Stan (Betty) Ojstrsek; Fran (Barb) Ojstrsek; Sue (Scott) Cole; sisters- in-law: Jane Ojstrsek and Mary(Tom) Barnes; and brother in law: Vince (Judy) Strupp. Judy is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Stanley and Lyles Ojstrsek; brothers: Larry and Mike Ojstrsek; her father- in- law and mother- in- law: Nick and Jo Ravanelli; and sister- in- law: Virjean Strupp.
