November 11, 2020
Judith "Judy" Lynn Hauser, 77, of Cashton, WI, passed away Sunday, November 8, 2020, at Mayo Health System in La Crosse, WI, with her loving family by her side. Judy was born August 25, 1943, to Robert and Violet (Bouchard) Rhoades, in Merrillan, WI.
Judy grew up in Black River Falls, WI, where her zest for life and compassion for others flourished. She called many places home before landing in Cashton, where she married Nelbert Seitz on August 21, 1965; they later divorced.
Judy worked as a waitress and bartender most of her life - a job that fit her personality perfectly. On December 31, 1982, Judy married her best friend, John Hauser. Together they lived a good life spending time camping, traveling, and sharing countless adventures. Judy was a genuine caretaker of family and friends, lending an ear or a helping hand to offer support to anyone in need. Judy's love for life will be missed by the many people whose lives she touched along the way.
Judy is survived by her husband of 38 years, John; their children, Dawn (Gideon) Seitz-Adeyeni, Kelly (Lyle) Hauser-Schaller, Michael (Mary) Hauser, Patrick Hauser and Trina (Jim Stafslien) Seitz; grandchildren, Joshua Dickman, Jesse (Samantha) Dickman, Kylene Scholze, Cheyanne Scholze, Tabitha Swenson, Jordan Hauser, and Emily Swenson; eight great-grandchildren; a brother, Ricky Rhoades of Fayetteville, NC; along with nieces, nephews, other relatives and dear friends.
Judy was preceded in death by her parents, Violet Blume and Robert Rhodes; two sons, Tim and Greg Hauser; infant great-grandson, Joseph Dickman; two sisters, Kalla Ryan and Sally Kolbo; her mother and father-in-law, Agnes and Ray Hauser.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Friday, November 13, 2020, 10:30 a.m. at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Cashton, WI. Father Michael Klos will officiate.
