Judith Grahl Obituary

Judith Ann Grahl was the youngest of five siblings born in Julesberg, Colorado to Pete and Lena Gerk. She graduated from Sedgwick HS, and married at 19 to John Grahl (later divorced). Early in her marriage, she experienced life in other cities and states such as Boston, MA. and Kansas City, MO. She raised two children, Matthew and Nancy, and worked full time for Nabisco for 36 years. She was often known in town as "the cookie lady" and could be found in the local grocery stores filling up the shelves. She was actively involved in her community and often held leadership positions through ISU Faculty Women's Club, St. Vincent DePaul, Pocatello Police Department Citizen Advisory Board, and Bengal Athletic Association, just to name a few.

It is difficult to capture the entirety of someone's life in just a few sentences. Our mother has done so many things and impacted so many people. In the days since her passing, many words have often been used to remember her: energetic, driven, committed, and a loyal friend. Our favorite sentiment from those who took care of her at Quail Ridge was, "she always kept us on our toes". Our mother held herself and others to high expectations and always committed herself fully to a task or project. She was tough, generous, and dedicated.

She is survived by her children Matthew and Nancy) and grandchildren(Nathan, Tori, and PJ), and one brother (Raymond). She will be laid to rest at Holyoke Cemetery in Colorado next to her parents and other siblings

As there is no formal service to be held in Pocatello, our hope is that those who wish to celebrate her will do so by getting together for a game of cards, attending an ISU football or basketball game, and/or volunteering their time at a worthy cause. She is missed and will be forever loved.
