Judith "Judy" R. Kinder

May 7, 1942 — May 27, 2023

Ligonier

Judith R. Kinder, lovingly known as Judy, passed away at the age of 81 on Saturday, May 27th, 2023 at Parkview Noble Hospital. She was born on May 7th, 1942 in Chicago, IL to Dr. William and Margaret (Bloesch) Walton.

Judy graduated from Bloom High School in Chicago Heights, IL and went on to work as a phlebotomist for American Red Cross, where she made a difference in countless lives. Those who knew Judy best would describe her as a strong but stubborn woman but also as a loving individual who cared for her family more than anything else. Her love extended beyond her immediate family to include many friends over the years. Judy had a passion for music and enjoyed singing and playing the piano. She was an avid reader, but most of all, loved spending time with her grandchildren. Judy has left behind a legacy that will never be forgotten by those who have been blessed to know her. 

Judy will be deeply missed by her children: John (Vanessa) Kinder, Chris Kinder, Kathy Eppelmann, Andy Kinder, and Greg (Kimberly) Kinder; 10 grandchildren; 2 great grandchildren; and brother, Stephen (Karen) Walton. She is further survived by many nieces; nephews; other relatives; and friends. Judy was preceded in death by her husband, John Martin Kinder; parents; sister, Mary Walton; and brother, Dr. Mark Walton.
