WAUNAKEE - Judith Ann Brady, age 72 of Waunakee, WI, passed away at her home Saturday, May 5, 2018 after a three-year long battle with a devastating and fatal illness. She was born July 23rd, 1945, at St. Mary's Hospital in Madison, WI to the late Milford Johnson and Olivi (Bollenbeck) Johnson. She married Patrick R. Brady on July 19th, 1976 in Las Vegas, Nevada
Judith was a graduate of Sauk Prairie High School and was employed by St Mary's hospital for 10 years in Central Service before traveling with her husband as he advanced his career. She retired from St Anthony's Hospital in Rockford IL in 2004. Moving back to Wisconsin in 2005.
Family and friends were Judy's passion and delight. She enjoyed chores in and around her home, travel, dining out, dancing, whitewater rafting and the great outdoors.
She is survived by her husband Patrick Brady, son Kevin Mcdaniel (Jodi), grandchildren Brittney McDaniel, Mark McDaniel, Seamus McDaniel, Kelandra McDaniel and Declan McDaniel (All of Waunakee WI). She is also survived by her sisters Charlene Boley (Evansville, WI) and Jane Mack (Elk Grove, IL).
She was preceded in death by both her parents, her youngest son Mark McDaniel, as well as her two brothers - Leo "Butch" Johnson and Gordon "Gordy"Johnson.
Judy requested a private cremation with her remains to be in the possession of her husband. There will be a Celebration of Life in her honor at her home. The day of the celebration, May 19th, Monsignor James Gun will be leading us in a brief prayer at 11 am. The family wishes to thank all of those who cared for her during her illness.
My favorite memories of my mom are all centered around her great sense of humor and her love to banter. Probably the best of which was one night a couple of years ago when she and Mark (her grandson) went on for over an hour. All of us were on the floor laughing, especially when she stood up like she was going to get him (she was 5'2" and he is 6'4").
