Judith M. Junga, 70, of Toledo, Ohio, passed away July 21, 2018 at Genacross at Wolf Creek. Judith was born September 13, 1947 in Toledo to Stephen J. and Barbara (Senci) Junga. She was part of the first graduating class at Cardinal Stritch High School in 1965, and ranked at the top academically. She worked at the Toledo-Lucas County Library as a clerk for 17 years before her retirement earlier this year.
During her lifetime, Judith served as a caretaker, both within her family and for the local populace. She helped her parents through challenging health problems for nearly two decades and, as an environmentalist, was a diligent watchdog devoted to ensuring that Toledo’s water supply was clean and safe for future generations. In her younger years, she was a fan of the Detroit Tigers, and enjoyed her time as a league bowler on teams with her mother. Judith was proud of her Hungarian heritage, and cherished the time spent with family. She was especially fond of her beautiful flower garden and bountiful vegetable garden, tending each with great care.
Judith is survived by her siblings, Barbara (Richard) Kuzma, Deborah (Bruce) Sacks, Stephen M. Junga; nieces and nephews, Cathy Jo Kuzma, Richard Kuzma, Ron Kuzma, Rick Hatfield, Jill (Hatfield) Christian, Kelly (Hatfield) Canales, Joelle (Sacks) Suarez, Shaylee Junga, and longtime friend Nancy Sparks. She is preceded in death by her parents; sister, Patricia Hatfield; and niece, Barbara Kuzma-O’Reilly.
