In loving memory of

Judith Kay Luppino
December 11, 1953 - December 10, 2020

Judy Luppino, Age 66, of Fridley, passed away December 10, 2020 surrounded by her family.

One of seven children, Judy was born on December 11, 1953 to Muriel (Dolly) and Robert Hansen. Judy was always trying to keep up with her big sisters. Judy and her siblings were a tight-knit group. She especially enjoyed spending time with them at her sister's cabin in the summer.

Judy was a cherished wife of Steve for 50 years, a beloved mother to Jason Luppino, Jena (Brad) Perala and adopted daughter, Christine Brandt. She was also a loving, warm, and spoiling Grandma to Sydney Luppino, Luke Miller, and Blake and Alec Perala.

Judy and Steve were high school sweethearts and began a family together. Judy found her calling when she became a child care provider. In her 33 years of loving the children she cared for as her own, many many bonds were created and forever friendships were formed. Judy always made sure everyone was taken care of. She recognized her family and friend's birthdays, anniversaries, every special occasion, and holidays with a card and caring words. She will be missed by every life she touched.

Judy is preceded in death by her parents, brothers Mike, Bob, Bill, and brother-in-law Gary Greven.

Judy is survived by sisters Mary Greven and Sandy (Terry) Dahlberg, brother Tim Hansen, many cherished nieces and nephews, and a mountain of great friends.

Due to current restrictions, a gathering may be scheduled in the future.

In lieu of memorials, please donate to Judy's favorite charities:

"Dear family of Judy, I am sorry that because of such mileage (half a world away) and less, I have not been close enough to know you as adults and families. My half-brother Bob was Judy's dad. My dad and his, would have loved you all. I share your dismay as you lose Judy, your loving wife, mom and grandmom. My thoughts and prayers are for you daily during this very painful time. Lovingly, Jackie Hansen Olson Kruger"
