Judy was born in Milwaukee on September 23, 1943 to the late Joseph and Verona (Lukasavage) Trzinski. Verona resides at Portage County Nursing Home.
Judy grew up in Stevens Point and graduated from P.J. Jacobs High School in 1961. She attended her 50th class reunion this past August. On October 6, 1962, Judy married Robert Zdroik, her high school sweetheart, at St. Peter's Church in Stevens Point. They have been married 49 years.
Judy worked at the Stevens Point School District for 22 years, retiring from the SPASH Guidance Office in 1999.
Her grandchildren were precious to her and she enjoyed attending many of their extra-curricular activities. Judy was often seen at hockey arenas, hollering "shoot, shoot" to her son and grandsons. She was very crafty, loved to sew and was a member of the Happy Hookers crochet group. She was a frequent traveler with family and friends. She adventured across the U.S. on several scenic road trips with her charismatic Harley Davidson friends. Judy and Bob wintered in Rockport, Texas with friends where they played cards, shook dice, and acted much younger than their age.
Survivors include her husband Robert, four children Karen (Mark) Danczyk, Cathy (Joe) Gruber, John (Ann) Zdroik and Susan (DeWayne) Burant and six grandchildren; Michael and Marc Gruber, Derek and Katie Burant and Gunner and Montana Zdroik.
She is further survived by three brothers David (Carol) Trzinski of Amherst Junction, Dennis Trzinski, Donald (Joan) Trzinski and a special cousin, Keri McLean, all of Stevens Point and beloved nieces and nephews.
