Judy Ann Lyons (Natrop) passed away peacefully with her husband and children by her side on Thursday, September 21, 2017. She was born September 5, 1958, in Appleton, Wisconsin, to Gordon and Bernadine (Nowak) Natrop, and grew up in Kimberly, Wisconsin.
Judy was proud of her family and cherished all her friendships. In her free time, she enjoyed being outside, spending summertime in Northern Wisconsin on Lake Hilbert, downhill skiing with her family, and going on road trips to see life’s natural wonders and interesting landmarks. She loved the seasons, especially autumn with the beautiful changing colors.
Judy will be missed by her husband of 37 years, John Lyons and their two sons: Matthew (Stephanie) Lyons and Aaron (Kelly Mullen) Lyons, and two grandsons: Sam and Max. She is further survived by her father, and her siblings: Jeff (Michelle) Natrop, Dave Natrop, and Cheri (Randy) Marquardt; her close friends, Larry and Geri Harkness, and many other family members. She was preceded in death by her mother, Bernie Natrop, and her mother-in-law Gertrude Lyons.
The family would like to thank Dr. Yao and all of the compassionate staff at Fox Valley Hematology & Oncology, along with the caring staff at Heartland Hospice.
A private family service was held to celebrate Judy’s life with close family and friends.
