Judith E. Campbell Klote, 79, of Seville, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, Aug. 30, 2021.

Judy was born on Feb. 19, 1942, and she was the daughter of the late Janet (Shute) Campbell and Charles and Wanda Campbell. On May 26, 1984, Judy married Frank Klote and they shared thirty-seven wonderful years together.

Judy graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in Business. She went on to a career as the Director of Human Resources for Amigos Library System in Plano, Texas. After retiring in 2013, Judy and Frank moved to Frank’s family farm in Edina, Missouri, and in 2016 they returned to Ohio to be closer to family. After moving to Seville, she joined the Seville United Methodist Church Family where she immersed herself in church activities. Judy was a devoted Christian and if you needed prayer, you called Judy who prayed twice a day and whenever someone was in need.

Surviving are her husband, Frank; children, Nina Bates, Sean Wells, Doug (Kathy) Klote, Jeff (Christine) Klote and Alesia (David) Magruder; nine grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; her brother, Steve (Donna) Campbell; her sister, Patricia (Jeffrey) Plumer; and several nieces and nephews.

Judy was preceded in death by a daughter, Roberta Klote, and her parents.

Services were held Saturday, September 4, at Seville United Methodist Church with Rev. Donald Kuntz officiating. Burial will be in Seville Mound Hill Cemetery.
