Judi Kay Bolger

February 22, 1960 — May 26, 2023

Mankato, MN

Judi Kay Bolger, age 63, of Mankato, died on Friday, May 26, 2023 at her home.

Memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, June 2, 2023, at Grace Lutheran Church, Mankato. Visitation will be held at the church for one hour prior to the service on Friday. Interment will be at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Mankato.

Judi Kay, the daughter of Edward and Eleanor (Larson) Bolger, was born on February 22, 1960, in Mankato, MN. In 1963, her family moved to Long Prairie where Judi attended public school until her father’s death in 1978, at which time the family returned to Mankato. After Judi graduated from Mankato West, she moved into the REM Mankato group home and went to work at MRCI, from which she retired in 2019. Judi enjoyed reading, coloring, doing jigsaw puzzles, traveling, and dining out, but her greatest joy was her family. She was a cherished part of her family, for whom her exuberant enjoyment of life, kindness, compassion, and bravery in overcoming her challenges were an inspiration.

Judi is survived by three sisters, Kristin (Deane) Olson of North Mankato, Jan (Tony) Rogness of Albert Lea, Lynn (Gregg) Dale of Inver Grove Heights; two “neeceez”, Mandy (Derik) Budig of Sioux Falls, SD, Krista (Chad) Kemp of Champlin, one “nefoo,” Christopher Dale of Minneapolis; and multiple adored great-nieces and great-nephews. Judi was preceded in death by her parents.
