Judith Ann Hilger, known to her loved ones as Judy, peacefully passed away from metastatic breast cancer on November 5, 2023, in Roseville, CA, at the age of 84. She was born on August 22, 1939, in San Francisco, CA, to her late parents, Viva and Edmund Niederhaus. Judy was a loving, supportive, and encouraging wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She had a remarkable ability to listen and provide wise advice.

Judy dedicated over 35 years of her life joyfully and masterfully teaching mostly first grade. Her passion and dedication to education were recognized when she was honored as Teacher of the Year. She received her higher education from UC Davis and San Jose State, shaping her into the exceptional educator she became.

Beyond her career, Judy had a multitude of hobbies that brought her great joy. She found fulfillment in philanthropy, actively participating in The Assistance League and PEO, always seeking opportunities to serve her community. Judy possessed a talent for gardening, creating a tranquil oasis in both her front and backyards. Her keen eye for interior design allowed her to create a haven within her home, beautifully decorated for every holiday and season. It was a place of warmth, happiness, and hospitality.

Judy is survived by her loving family: her husband, Marvin Hilger, her son and daughter in law, John and Laurie Hilger, and granddaughter, Ella Trout, and her daughter and son in law, Jennifer and Jim Wickenhiser and granddaughters, Anna and Sara Wickenhiser. She was preceded in death by her parents, Viva and Edmund Niederhaus, as well as her brothers, Kenneth and Donald Niederhaus and her beloved dog, Jackie.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, January 6, at 1:00 p.m. at Lincoln Community Church in Lincoln, CA.

In honor of Judy's memory and her passion for making a difference, contributions can be made to Make A Wish, an organization she held close to her heart.

Judy will forever be remembered for her unwavering love, support, and her ability to create beauty in all aspects of life. Her legacy will continue to inspire those who were fortunate enough to know her. She will forever be missed, forever cherished, forever loved.
