Judith Judy Orline Zandberg (Jorgensen)

May 15, 1943 - March 17, 2021

Tribute

It is with deep sadness that we share the news that our dear wife and mother Judith Orline Zandberg passed away peacefully in her sleep in Abbotsford, BC on March 17, 2021 at 77 years old.  Judy was born in Vancouver, BC in 1943 as the second daughter of four children and graduated from Maple Ridge High School.  She married Karl in 1963 and raised her family in the northern city of Prince George, BC. Karl and Judy moved to Abbotsford, BC in 1995 to enjoy their retirement years.

Judy is survived by her husband Karl; her children Linda (Scott) Roux, Diana (Danièle) Zandberg and Jason (Roselyn) Zandberg; her grandchildren Jackson, Chloe and Ellie; her sister Marlynn (Ken) Hardwick and her brother Douglas (Kate) Jorgensen; many brothers/sisters-in-law and nieces and nephews; and numerous dear friends.  She was predeceased by her parents Lawrence and Orline Jorgensen and her brother Melvyn Jorgensen.

Judy was a beloved wife, a loving mother, a dear sister, and a good friend to many and she touched so many people’s lives throughout her 77 years with us.  She was an avid and skilled sewer who, in her younger years, was known for the beautiful Raggedy Anne and Andy doll sets that she sewed. (Her kids spent many nights stuffing doll legs, arms and bodies at night as the family watched TV together in Prince George so Judy could expertly finish the dolls and send them off to their new homes.) In her later years, she branched into sewing stuffed animals and other beautiful fabric crafts.  Judy was a kind woman who loved the winter, enjoyed thrifting, had a knack for remembering everyone’s birthdays, could play solitaire for hours on end, and was fascinated with the afterlife.  She had a big heart and was always there to help her family or a friend or neighbour. We will miss her terribly.

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, the family will not be holding a funeral. However, a celebration of Judy’s life will be organized later this year. Friends and family are encouraged to share their condolences, memories and photos of Judy on a Facebook remembrance site that her family created at www.facebook.com/groups/JudyZandberg.
