Judith Lillian Brinkmeier
January 2, 1945 – April 13, 2024

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Judith Lillian Brinkmeier, 79 years of Humboldt, announces her unexpected passing on Saturday, April 13, 2024, at Regina General Hospital.  Judy was born in Humboldt on January 2, 1945, the first child out of 13, to Henry and Agnes (nee Steil) Wiegers.  Her family lived on a farm 5 miles east of Burr. Judy attended Banner School from grade 1 to 8, and then attended high school in Muenster. Judy then stayed home to help work and support her parents with their large family.  Later, she worked for Sasktel in Humboldt, for 6 years. On November 18, 1967, Judy married her soul mate, John Brinkmeier, at the Assumption Parish in Marysburg. This union was blessed with 5 daughters. Judy was very involved on the farm and in the community with John, while raising and supporting her daughters in all their activities.  She may have been little, but she was mighty, and she was able to whip up a big meal in no time after a long day in the garden or taking care of her family. She was a very organized and productive woman.  As the girls grew and left home, she worked at St. Elizabeth’s Convent from 1991-2001, a job she thoroughly enjoyed.  In 2007, Judy and John retired to Humboldt, and spent many winters in Yuma, Arizona, and summers at Greenwater Lake, with family and friends. She also enjoyed spending time with her mother and sisters on their annual trip to Weyakwin Lake. She very much enjoyed any time she spent with friends and family and loved having a good laugh. Judy was never too busy to be the first one to volunteer at the church or curling rink in Marysburg, and always made time for a visit over a cup of coffee with friends.  Judy loved gardening and her flowers, especially red roses.  Her passion was collecting hundreds of angel figurines, filling her home and yard. Her down time was spent reading, playing scrabble online, doing sudokus and crosswords, and putting jigsaw puzzles together.  Family was always her number one priority. Judy stayed very connected to her parents, brothers and sisters, as well as her in-laws. Her world became complete as each grandchild arrived. Judy thoroughly loved spending time with them.  

Judy will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her husband of 56 years, JOHN Brinkmeier of Humboldt, and their five daughters and five grandchildren:
