Judith Faren

May 16, 1945 — August 20, 2022


Judith Ann (Kolb) Faren, 77, of Middleton, was born to Eternal Life on Saturday, August 20, 2022.  Judy was born on May 16, 1945, to Quintin (Jake) and Dorothy Kolb.  She married the love of her life, Robert (Bob) Faren, and they started their business - Faren Electric. They were blessed with a son Joseph and daughter Rebecca, sharing 56 years together.  They are members of St. Bernard’s Catholic Church in Middleton.

Her cherished times were spent with her family and grandchildren, making many treasured and joyous memories.  She enjoyed taking care of others, bringing happiness and connections. Judy’s sense of humor and positivity provided cheer and love always. She deeply valued family and friends.  An avid reader, she zipped through romance novels.

Judy loved the ocean, collecting shells, collecting Santas and “Christmas Village'' items.  She worked at Happy Pastimes in Middleton, which assisted her collections!

Judy is survived by husband Bob Faren; son Joe (Sara) Faren; daughter Becky (Ron) Schroeder; grandchildren Nick and Kaia Schroeder, Quintin, Maleah and Mason Faren; brothers Jim Kolb and Tim (Julie) Kolb, sisters Linda (Tim) Hook, Jane (Paul) Anderson; a brother-in-law Fred Behrend; and sister-in-law Cindy Kolb.  She was preceded in death by her parents, sister Mary Behrend, and brother Robbie Kolb.
