Posted

Judith M. Steinkraus of Westport passed peacefully on May 2, 2020, at her beloved home after a lengthy illness. She was 69. 

Judy received compassionate medical care and exceptional end of life care from Accent Care. For many years her devoted family gave her loving support in every way.  Judy will be sadly missed by all those who knew her.

Judy was born in Brighton, Mass., the daughter of Joseph F. and Mary C. Steinkrauss. She was preceded in death by her partner, Betty Ann Metz, and her siblings, Joseph C. Steinkrauss and his wife Donna, and Phillip J. Steinkrauss.

Judy is survived by her brother, Mark A. Steinkrauss (Barbara); sister in law, Virginia M. Steinkrauss; 11 nieces and nephews, and many grand nieces and nephews.

There are no services planned. Family will hold a celebration of her life at a later time. Judy loved her cats and they were a big part of her life.

The family requests that, in lieu of flowers, remembrances be made in her name to Faxon Animal Rescue League of Fall River, 474 Durfee St., Fall River, MA, 02720.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Potter Funeral Home, 81 Reed Road, Westport.
