     Judith "Judy" A. Steiert, 80, of Waterloo, died Wednesday, July 29, 2020 MercyOne Waterloo Medical Center.
     She was born March 10, 1940, in Marshalltown, daughter of Gilbert R. and Ruth A. Boelsche Sonksen. Judy graduated from Gladbrook High School in 1957 and attended Gates Business College in Waterloo.
     She married Donald R. "Don" Steiert October 15, 1960 in Gladbrook.
     Judy was a member of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Waterloo where she was active in the "Peace Makers" quilt group. She enjoyed sewing, quilting, and gardening, but most of all she loved spending time with her grandchildren. She was an animated book reader and made the characters in the stories come to life. She also gave great hugs. In her younger years, Judy always looked forward to family fishing trips to Lake Ida, MN.
     Judy is survived by her husband, Don of Waterloo; three daughters, Cindy (Dane) Dierks of Cedar Rapids, Tracy (Randy) Freese of West Des Moines‚ and Christy (Jeff) Frese of Ely; five grandchildren, Megan (Tom) Zlatohlavek of Mission, KS, Jordan (Toni) Dierks of Kansas City, MO, Katie Dierks of Cedar Rapids, Tristan, and William Frese of Ely; one great-grandson, Jake Zlatohlavek; and a sister, Pamela (Jim) Robinson of Austin, TX.
