Judy C. Gassen, 66, of Chippewa Falls, town of Eagle Point, passed away at her home Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2017, while under the care of St. Joseph’s Hospice.
She was born March 2, 1951, in Colfax to Doris (Hanson) and Marshall Woodford. She graduated from Colfax High School.
Judy lived in Bloomer for many years before moving to the Chippewa Falls/Hallie area.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and her stepfather, Frank Koepke.
