KESLER, Judith

Posted: March 10th, 2020


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of JUDITH RETA KESLER on March 5, 2020. She passed away peacefully in her sleep at the home that she shared with her late husband, Greg Kesler.

She is survived by her children, Berva Dawn (Roy) and Duane (Margo), her grandchildren, Kurtis and Chase, her sisters, Lil (Les) and Eileen (Verne), and her brother, Rod (Joanne).

Judy was born December 7, 1945 to Dietrich and Agatha Dyck in Bassano, AB. In 1967, she married Gregory Kesler and their life took them down the road from Rosemary to Fort Macleod, finally settling and forming what would become the family ranch just out of Magrath.

Judy has had many accomplishments throughout the years, but first and foremost was that she was a great mom and grandma. She always dropped what she was doing to help others, often putting her own needs last. She enjoyed the art of playing piano and organ and loved to pass that passion onto others. She played a vital role in the family business as a rodeo secretary.

Judy will truly be missed as the love she shared has left a void that will be impossible to fill.

Family and friends are invited to pay their respects to Judy at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2825 – 32 Street South, Lethbridge, AB on Monday, March 16, 2020 from 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M.

A Celebration of Judy’s Life will be held at SOUTHMINSTER UNITED CHURCH, 1011 – 4 Avenue South, Lethbridge, AB on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 at 1:00 P.M. with Wayne Brooks officiating.

    Just heard yesterday of Judy’s passing (June 18/21). So sorry – our sincere condolences. I was one of her bridesmaids at their wedding in ‘67. We met them for coffee after a rodeo in Saskatoon one year; also spoke with her in the summer of 2017 and again in Sept of 2019. We met at CMBC in Winnipeg. She was such a sweetheart. Yesterday I watched the online funeral of Judy – so very well done. And so nice to “meet” her children and grandchildren.
    I appreciate that this is your busy season but if and when you have a minute I would very much appreciate a copy of her wedding picture with the whole wedding party.
