Surrounded by family, Judith Ann Nielsen, age 83, passed away Thursday June 6, 2024, at Ascension St. Francis Medical Center in Milwaukee. Judith was born in Racine on January 8, 1941, daughter of the late Francis and Helen (nee: Olson) Toutant.

They shared fifty-three wonderful years together before David preceded her in death in 2015. Her love of children filled her with great joy assisting as a teacher’s aide at St. Edward Catholic Pre-School. She especially enjoyed her camping trips with family and friends on Crystal Lake. Judy was a member of Sons of Norway. She was artistic and enjoyed arts and crafts and always enjoyed reading a good mystery. Above all, she loved her time with her grandchildren.
