She was born May 20, 1946 in Sturgeon Bay, the daughter of the late John “Sparky” and Laurine (Wilquet) Vogel. Judy graduated from Sturgeon Bay High School in 1964. On August 16, 1964 in Rockford, Illinois she married Larry Anschutz.

She was an active, lively woman, always moving and on the go. Judy loved shopping, and dancing. She was a devoted family woman, helped with her children’s activities and 4-H when they were growing up.
