Judith Lively Obituary

Judith Renee (Brown) Lively was born in International Falls, MN, the only child of Kale (KC) and Leona Brown.  Judy passed away Wednesday, January 31, 2024, at Edgewood in Baxter at age 86.  

Judy graduated from the Brainerd Schools and married her high school sweetheart, Bob Lively. Bob and Judy settled in Brainerd and raised their four children there. Judy had a variety of jobs including working at the garment factory, custom drapery and at the local hospital. Her very favorite job was in the nursery.  

Both Bob and Judy vastly enjoyed traveling, camping, and boating with family and friends. Rooting for the Vikings and the Twins was a favorite pastime at the Lively household or at the Eagles Club. All the grandkids enjoyed spending time with Grandma.

Judy is survived by her son Steve (Karen) Lively, daughters Stacy (Clifford) Kimball, Renee (Sean) Reed, son-in-law Jim Loss; 11 grandchildren; and 8 great-grandchildren. Preceding Judy in death are her parents, her husband Robert Lively and daughter, Regan Loss.  

A Celebration of Life will be Friday, February 9, 2024, from 4:00-7:00pm, at Nelson-Doran Funeral Home. A short service will be held at 6 pm, according to Judy’s wishes. In lieu of flowers, memorials are appreciated.
