Judy was born in Spring Valley on November 8, 1943 to August and Frances (Cunningham) Bernadoni. She married Phillip Englehaupt on July 30, 1965. While Judy was a stay-at-home mom, she also worked at Cassidy’s, Hamilton’s Family Restaurant, Graphic Electronics, and then as a carrier for the NewsTribune.
Judy was a member of St. Benedict’s Church where she also played the organ which she learned from nuns. She enjoyed working in her yard with her flowers and garden. Judy was an avid Chicago Cubs, Bears, Bulls, and Blackhawks fan, but she was the greatest fan of whichever team where her grandchildren were playing. She enjoyed her chocolate, and it was acceptable to have cookies for breakfast.
Judy is survived by her daughter Leslie (David Boyd) Englehaupt of Erie, PA; three sons Doug (Heather) Englehaupt of Ladd, Dave (Kanu Chaichalud) Englehaupt of Dalzell, and Dan (Shavonne) Englehaupt of La Salle; nine grandchildren; one great grandson; brother Rick (Pam) Bernadoni of AZ; brother-in-law Norman Wenzel of Dimmick; and nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband Phil on November 1, 2015.
