Judith D. Vis

October 23, 1945 — July 17, 2022

JUDITH DIANNE VIS was born on October 23, 1945 to John and Johanna (Oldenkamp) Top in Luverne, Minnesota. She was raised on various places throughout Rock County, Minnesota. Judy attended Hills Christian School in Hills, Minnesota before then attending and graduating high school from Hills public schools. Following her education, Judy began working as a secretary at Hakes in Luverne. On March 13, 1969, Judy was united in marriage to Norman Vis at the Hills United Reformed Church. Following their marriage, the couple made their home on an acreage near Manley, Minnesota, where they would live together for the next 53 years while raising their family. In addition to homemaking, Judy was very involved in the day to day operations on the farm with Norm. She also cleaned houses for several years.

Judy’s life was devoted to her faith in the Lord, service to others and her family. She was a member of Hills United Reformed Church where she volunteered and taught Sunday school. She served many meals and drove kids for events at Hills Christian School. She supported and volunteered for several causes, including Trash for Cash, Union Gospel Mission, Right for Life and Luke Society. Right after her relationship with her Lord, Judy’s priority was her family. She provided for them in all of the ways she was able and taught them many values and lessons which shaped their character as grown adults. She loved spending time with her grandchildren and held “grandma’s day out” special to her heart. She also loved rummaging and thrifting with her sister, Audrey.

On Sunday, July 17, 2022, Judy went to be with her Lord while at the Sanford USD Medical Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota at the age of 76 years, eight months and 25 days.

Judy is lovingly remembered by her husband, Norm; six children, Kelly (Sheila) Vis of Sioux Falls, Boyd Vis of Beaver Creek, Minnesota, Benjamin Vis of Valley Springs, Rachel (Toby) Kaiser of Brandon, South Dakota, Samuel (Stacey) Vis of Grand Junction, Colorado, and Matthew Vis of Sioux Falls; 14 grandchildren, Caleb (Jasmyn) Vis, Isaiah Vis, Carlie Gardner, Daisey Vis, Isaac Vis, Braxton Kaiser, Taylor Kaiser, Addison Vis, Kennedy Vis, Kadence Vis, Kohlter Vis, Keatton Vis, Arriana Vis, and Averley Vis; two great-grandchildren, Archer and Kutler Vis; seven siblings, Albert (Marlene) Top of Hardwick, Minnesota, Charles Top of Edgerton, Joanne Klarenbeek of Luverne, Audrey (Jim) Vis of Sioux Falls, Annetta Berghorst of Ripon, California, Larry (Melinda) Top of Hardwick, and John (Evonne) Top of Luverne; other family and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Johanna Top; step-father, Gerrit Pap; nephew, Albert Top; and a niece, Heather Berghorst.
