Judith Marie Green
January 7, 1963 - October 8, 2019
Judith Marie Green, stylist extraordinaire, Pepsi lover, risk taker, general construction contractor (not official) and "small but mighty," died on Tuesday, October 8, 2019.
Judy was an advocate for "Real Pepsi" years before any of the talking heads became concerned about the sugar substitutes used in Diet Pepsi or any other kind of Pepsi. As a point of pride, Judy could drink a minimum of 12 cans of "Real Pepsi" per day and not gain any weight. Always Pepsi, NEVER Coca-Cola. According to Judy, Coca-Cola was the "Devil's Soda."
Judy was extremely smart. She was particularly proud of the fact that she appeared pro-se in a legal proceeding and the court required the opposing attorney to pay Judy sanctions for the attorney's bad faith actions.
Judy had two sons, Christopher Green of Fridley and Coltin Green of Fridley. She taught them to install fences, install siding, install windows, install decks, install swimming pools, to drive, to ride ATV's and Jet Skis, to love animals, and to just be thankful. She took great pride in making certain that her children had the foundation they needed to be successful adults and make a difference in the world.
Judy had a life-long affair with Pepsi, Ford vehicles, Harley Davidson Motorcycles, and Halloween.
Judy excelled at decorating her house and yard for Halloween, making the most fabulous bags of treats for the trick-or-treaters, finding a spot to sleep for herself on her bed in order to sleep with her four Great Danes, being self-sufficient, and fighting City Hall or any other agency or person who dared to challenge her.
Judy's signature look always saw her with her hair perfectly coifed and her make-up done to perfection. Whether wearing sweats, shorts, jeans, or a dress, she always looked amazingly put together; it made no difference if she was just hanging out at home, going to work, or going out for a night on the town. She was always a "hottie." A title she never shied away from.
Judy traveled extensively in the last few years of her life and she enjoyed every moment and new experience. Judy spent time in Mexico with her son, Coltin, the week before she passed.
Judy is preceded in death by her father, William Green, and her brother, Richard Green. Judy is survived by her children, Christopher Green and Coltin Green, her brother, Mark Green, her nephew Brandon and niece Felicia, her fur babies Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne, Sheba, Shiloh, and Sierra. Judy is also survived by many friends and co-workers.
A Celebration of Life gathering will be held for Judy on October 28, 2019, from 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm at the Roseville VFW, 1145 Woodhill Drive, Roseville, Minnesota 55113.

"I was fortunate enough to know Judy for 5 years. Judy was caring, witty, and a wonderful overall person. Judy and I bonded when she helped and supported me through my own bout with cancer. Judy was a sweetheart and she is missed by many, including me. "
