Obituary: Judith Anne Votisek
February 8, 1948 - November 11, 2010
Resident of Fremont
Judith passed away on Thursday, November 11, 2010 after a courageous battle with brain cancer. Judith was born to Herman and Agnes Schweisthal of Aurora, Illinois.
Judith's lifelong passion for libraries lead her to a Masters degree in Library Science. She then taught and became a school librarian in Chicago before moving to Colorado with her family. There, she became the Executive Director for the Colorado Library Association. In 1990 the family moved to the Bay Area where Judith worked as a Technical Librarian in the private sector creating internal libraries, the last of which was Adobe Systems.
Judith's adventurous spirit and love of exploring, whether it was driving to Alaska, skiing and hiking the mountains of Colorado, trekking through Europe, or visiting the beautiful Bay Area and wine country, gave her countless cherished time with family and friends.
Judith is survived by Jim, her loving husband of 39 years, son Matt (wife Linda), daughter Kristin (husband Bret Fischer), and her wonderful grandchildren Vanessa and Grayson. We will all miss her beautiful smile, her loving heart, her warmth, and grace.
A memorial service will be held on November 27, 2 p.m. at Fremont Memorial Chapel, 3723 Peralta Blvd., Fremont, 94536.
