JudyAnn Marie Rustemeyer

JudyAnn Marie Rustemeyer, age 57, of Linn, passed away on Friday, November 19, 2021, at SSM Health St. Mary’s in Jefferson City.

JudyAnn was born on October 21, 1964, in Jefferson City, a daughter to the late William “Bill” and Clara (Dudenhoeffer) Kirsch.

She was a 1983 graduate of Linn High School.

On May 26, 1984, she was united in marriage to the love of her life Andrew Rustemeyer at St. George Catholic Church in Linn. Andrew survives at their home.

JudyAnn owned and operated her own in-home daycare for the last 35 years, leaving a lasting impression of kindness and love on the children she cared for. She treated them and everyone like family. She loved to make people laugh, with her joking around and being the life of the party. She was always willing to help someone in need.

She was a member of St. George Catholic Church in Linn.

She enjoyed going to the casino, quilting, embroidery, working in her colorful flower gardens or finding different household projects to tinker around with. She loved nature, whether hiking, riding her bike on the Katy Trail, kayaking, or fishing. Her greatest enjoyment came from spending time with her family and friends.

In addition to her husband, of thirty-seven years, JudyAnn is survived by her daughter, Heather Rustemeyer of Jefferson City, her son, Nicholas Rustemeyer of Linn; four brothers, David (Barb) Kirsch of Jefferson City, Dan (Edith) Kirsch of Frankenstein, Joseph (Charlene) Kirsch of Summerdale, Alabama, and John (Vicki) Kirsch of Jefferson City; four sisters, Geri (Jerry) Ivy of Linn, Rose (Larry) Orscheln of Loose Creek, Robin (Joe) Peters of Frankenstein, and Mary Jane (Rick) Stephenson of Jefferson City; three sisters-in-law, Jeanette Hook of St. Charles, Marilyn (Albert) Voss of Linn, and Geneva (Denny) Menges of Jefferson City; one brother-in-law, Richard Rustemeyer of Bonnots Mill, along with many nieces, nephews and friends.

In addition to her parents, JudyAnn was preceded in death by her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Ferdinand “Ferd” and Dorothy Rustemeyer and a great niece, Josie Peters.

Private Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. George Catholic Church in Linn with Fr. Colin Franklin as the Celebrant. Interment will be held in St. George Parish Cemetery.

Expressions of Sympathy may be made to Masses in JudyAnn’s memory.

Arrangements are under the direction of Morton Chapel, Linn, Missouri (897-2214)

Judy asked "why are you still bringing diapers? Timmy is already potty trained!" She was an amazing babysitter and Timmy couldn't have been in better care spending those crucial learning years with both Judy and Andy.

May God wrap you in his loving arms and bring peace and comfort in the days ahead.
