BARABOO—Judith Ann Reinfeldt age 79, of Baraboo, passed away on Saturday, August 10, 2019, at SSM Hospice House.
Judy was born on November 6, 1939, to Alexander and Ella (Zimke) Baumgarten. She united in marriage to Wayne Wright on December 12, 1956; he preceded her in death. On September 19, 1970, she was united in marriage to Charles Reinfeldt who preceded her in death on September 22, 2001.
Her main passion was that of a loving housewife, while raising six children, but she also worked at some of the finer hotels/resorts in the Wisconsin Dells area for many years. Following, she worked at Land’s End for several years, and found great pleasure in working at the Baraboo Public Library until her retirement.
She enjoyed playing bingo, playing slots at surrounding casinos, traveling, and playing cards. While spending time at St. Clare Meadows and Sauk County Healthcare Center, she took up putting puzzles together. Her faith was very important to her and she has been a long-standing member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Baraboo.
