Judith "Judy" A. Gannon was born May 20, 1932, in Duluth, Minn., to Lynden C. and Hazel G. (Miller) Hedberg. She was raised and educated in Duluth. On Nov. 7, 1953, she married John "Bud" Gannon in Minneapolis. She and Bud moved to Mandan in 1959. She worked at the Mandan Western Shop for several years and the Morton County Register of Deeds for 23 years. After retiring, she was a bailiff for Morton County.
Judy was socially outgoing, actively involved in the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, a women's service group. Her social activities included bowling for many years; she belonged to the Mandan Horse and Saddle Club and the Mandan Eagles Ladies Auxiliary. She was generous in supporting many causes and volunteered countless hours in the community. She especially loved volunteering at the Mandan Care Center. She had a great love of the outdoors and the pasture behind her longtime home was a very special place to be with her family, horses, dogs and cats. She spent many happy hours working in her yard and garden. Her family was central in her life; the highlight was being present and a vocal supporter of any activities where her children and grandchildren were involved. These special memories describe Judy who lived life to the fullest for which we will be grateful.
Judy will be deeply missed by her daughters, Kathleen (Bob) Olson, Bismarck, and their children, Delaney, Colleen (Terry) Brossart, Olympia, Wash., and their children, Austin, Briar and Charlie, and Julie Neubauer, Mandan, and her children, Anna, Kathryn and Christopher; her sons, Timothy (Tina), Mandan, and their children, Kayse, Jessica, Jonny, Ryne and Natasha, and Daniel (Nancy), Bismarck, and their children, Grace, Angeline and Gabrielle; and one sister, Jacqueline Frenn, Menomonie, Wis.
Judy was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Bud, who died in 1997; and one brother-in-law, Charles Frenn.
