Judith Ann Belva Timperley, the daughter of Everett and Sarah (Fredrickson) Anderson was born May 1, 1937, at Osceola, Neb. She died Tuesday, at her home in Fairfield.
Judy attended Stomsburg High School and received her teaching degree from Midland College. She taught in a one room schoolhouse near Monroe, Neb. While teaching there, she met Melvin Engberg, who she would marry in June of 1957. Together, they were blessed with three children, Scott, Chris, and Shawn. She was later married to Lee Timperley of Battle Creek, Neb.
Judy enjoyed sports and while living in Battle Creek drove the team bus to the many football games, basketball games, and track meets that her children participated in. The other job she truly enjoyed was being the owner-operator of the Chicken Shack, a cafe in downtown Battle Creek. She later ran a restaurant in Norfolk, called the Alley Rose. She liked the restaurant business and interacting with her employees and guests! At retirement, in the fall of 2000, Judy moved to Fairfield to be close to her children, and their families.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Melvin; and an infant brother, Clark.
Survivors include Lee Timperley of Battle Creek, her son, Scott of Hastings, her daughter, Chris, of Fairfield, her son, Shawn of Kearney, nine grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
Because of the COVID-19 current crowd restrictions, the family is tentatively planning a funeral on her birthday, May 1, at the Alley Rose in Kearney, at 4 p.m.
