Imogene (“Mig”) Judiesch, 99, of Iowa City, died peacefully in her sleep on Tuesday, September 6, 2022, at the Oaknoll Retirement Community. Mig was born on December 7th, 1922, in Hopkinton, Iowa, the daughter of Archie and Alberta Casteel.

Ever the hard worker, she put herself through college, graduating from the University of Iowa with a degree in English and later pursuing post-baccalaureate studies in library science. In 1945 she married Kenneth James Judiesch while he was in medical school at the University of Iowa College of Medicine. Ken went on to establish a private medical practice in Iowa City and serve as a clinical associate professor of family medicine at the College of Medicine. They had three children together.

In addition to being a loving mother and grandmother, Mig was always generous with her time. She dedicated innumerable hours to volunteer work throughout her life - both at the Iowa City Public Library and at Mercy Hospital. In her free time, she was an avid bridge player and voracious reader, enjoying both interests well into her later years. Mig valued her long daily walks, maintained a perpetual soft spot for animals, and loved music and the arts. She was unfailingly loyal to countless friends, and even more so towards her cherished family.

She was preceded in death far too early by her beloved husband, Ken, and is survived by her brother, James Casteel; her three children, Michael K. Judiesch (Karen Lyness), Linda K. Judiesch, and Diane K. Schwartz; her grandsons, Brian Judiesch (Jessica), Jonathan Schwartz, and David Schwartz; step-grandson Jonathan Lyness (Elena), and her great grandchildren, Brittany Newberry (Peter) and Jamison Judiesch. Mig donated her body to the medical school for research, and a memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in her name to the Iowa City Public Library or The Preucil School of Music.

“If ever there comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart and I’ll stay there forever.” - -Winnie the Pooh

Mig will forever stay in the hearts of all who loved her.
