Judy Ann McCumber (Delaney-Steele)
Judy Ann McCumber (Delaney-Steele) 73, of Onalaska, WI passed away February 19, 2020 from heart disease and cancer, at her daughters (Melissa) home in Trempealeau, WI.
Judy was born to the late John and Opal Steele (Osleson), June 4, 1946. She was previously married to Paul Delaney in 1964 whom she has two daughters, Melissa (Richard Murphy) Mignognia and Patricia (David) Uehling. She also has two very “special” grandchildren, Trever and Alyssa Coorough whom she adored and was so proud of them both!
Nine siblings survive Judy. Eldon (Linda) Steele, John (Cindy) Steele, Richard Steele, Dale McCumber, Linda (Dick) Lehrke, Jerrie (Herb) Hafner, Shar (Al) Timm, Pam Steele, and Nancy (David) Weigel. Judy had a very large family with numerous Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews and Cousins. Too many to list but she loved them all!
She was proceeded in death by two son-in-laws, Sal Mignognia and Michael Ellenz, and by her brother & sister, Betty and Billy Steele, and brother-in-laws Dick Lehrke and Al Timm, and sister-in-law Cindy Steele.
Judy was one of the first women welders in the area. Judy worked at River City Steel and Trane Company as a welder. She also owned two motels in Fort Lauderdale before she retired. She enjoyed traveling across the country with her late husband Wayne McCumber and all the other trips, cruises, Las Vegas and the local casino’s. All that knew her felt Judy’s generosity and love. She was ready to be with the Lord and did not want anyone to be sad. Instead, she wanted us all to celebrate her life. Focus on the positive parts of life as it goes by so quick.
Judy was so much more than just our mom was, she was our best friend and we will miss her greatly. We take comfort in knowing she is no longer in pain and we will see her again in Heaven.
A celebration of Judy’s life will be at Sam’s bar on the north side of La Crosse on Saturday February 22, 2020 from 1 to 4 pm.
