Judy I. Steffes, 71

Judy Irene (Eggleston) Steffes, age 71, of Chanhassen, entered eternal life Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018.

She was born July 22, 1947, in Redwing, MN.

Judy was preceded in death by her parents, Wallace and Mabel Eggleston.

She is survived by her husband of 47 years, Robert Steffes; daughter Courtney (David) Balcer; sister Karen (Jerry) Lorenz; grandson Brooks Balcer; and many other loving family and friends.

With Judy’s passing, she left her loved ones’ hearts filled with lasting memories and a legacy that will remain most treasured in their lives. Her family was blessed to be at home with Judy when she was called away, and blessed with her courage to fight cancer for nearly 10 years; able to live a full life because of this courage and Judy’s positive outlook on life that began with a smile each day. Brooks will miss his “Ama,” but is happy she is now in heaven.

In lieu of flowers, Judy requested memorials to Angel Foundation, St. Paul, MN. Judy supported Angel Foundation and their mission to provide emergency financial assistance, education and support for adults with cancer and their families.

A memorial service will take place Friday, Nov. 30 at 11 a.m. at Excelsior Covenant Church, 19955 Excelsior Blvd., Excelsior, MN.

There will be visitation Wednesday, Nov. 28 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, 3675 Arboretum Dr, Chaska, MN; and continuing one hour prior to the service Friday.

Arrangements are with Huber Funeral & Cremation Services, Eden Prairie Chapel.
