Judith M. Miller

March 30, 1955 ~ December 7, 2020 (age 65)


Judith Miller left us on December 7, 2020, after a lengthy bout in the hospital. She was ultimately a victim of COVID-19, which she contracted while in rehab from her earlier operation. She will be sorely missed by her life partner Anders, brothers Michael and Jay, sisters-in-law Gail, Katia, and Kelly, her niece Tanya, cousins Lucille, Shah, Valeh and Carol, colleagues and neighbors too numerous to mention, and her treasured furry friends.

Born in La Grange Park, IL, Judith moved to Wausau in the 60s, a place she was glad to call home. After acquiring a B.A. in Liberal Arts from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, Judith earned licenses in life insurance and futures trading as a post-graduate. Judith was passionate about helping others, and was looking forward to continuing to inspire and improve the lives of those in her community in retirement. In addition to her career in social services, Judith also went on to become Prior Chair of Domestic Abuse and Sexual Assault Victims Services (DASAVS); the founder of Wausau's first shelter for abused women and children; a former volunteer with the Marathon County Humane Society and YWCA In-School Diversity Training Program; member of Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) and Midwest Renewable Energy Association; and, most recently, candidate for Wausau City Council in 2020.

A memorial service was held on January 21, 2021. Please contact to request a copy of the recording.
