Judith "Judy" Ann Teeple

December 14, 1940January 11, 2021

Judith Ann Teeple, of Davenport put on her running shoes and jogged into Heaven on January 11, 2021. Judy will remain in memory as a steadfast, strong and caring woman whose will and determination were unsurpassed.

Graduating in the inaugural class at North Scott High School, Judy went on to earn her MBA. After retiring from the Rock Island Arsenal, she continued to lead an active life. A longtime member and Lifetime Membership Award recipient of the Cornbelt Running Club, Judy co-founded ‘Women’s 101’ to help novice walkers and runners plan and train for races in a safe and secure environment. Judy completed countless races and marathons, placing multiple times in the Bix 7 and earning 2nd place for her age group in the Boston Marathon. Judy was a dedicated athlete, an inspiration to many and an activist for women.

She remained active well into her 70’s in the Blackhawk Hiking Club and the Women’s Outdoor Club, as well as bicycling and camping. Judy was up for any adventure and always gave 100%. This was evident in the support and unconditional love she gave to her children and grandchildren. Always cheering them on, she will be deeply missed.

Her fellowship at Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Quad Cities played a prominent role in her life as well. She was a person who worked to help those less fortunate and believed in accepting everyone without judgment.

She is predeceased by her parents, Ann and Walter Kluever. She is survived by her brothers Allan (Jan) and Norman (Lucy) Kluever; her daughters Kristy (Scott) Mosher and Jill (Matt) Follett; her grandchildren Leigh (Aaron) Stricklin, Sadie Mosher, Sierra Follett, and Nelson Follett. A life so beautiful deserves a special Celebration of Life, which will be held at a later date to honor her loving memory. As you plan your adventures for 2021, do something that you’ve never done before in her honor. No excuses.

What a classy lady! Always willing to help, never interested in accolades. Judy was involved in many activities and organizations, and always interested in helping. She always seemed to know why she got up in the morning - she seemed to know unmistakenly where her true north was. I am one of so many that will miss her, miss her dedication, and her quiet, focused way of getting things done to help others.

I always saw Judy out running and completing marathons. She enjoyed running and competing in races. I was on the Cornbelt Running Club Race Team with Judy. She got me involved with becoming a member of the race team back in 2001.

I worked with Judy Teeple at the Arsenal for years. She was such a lovely and congenial person, smart, efficient and a great person to work with. I ran too and we would often talk running stories. My deepest sympathy to her family.

My sincerest condolences to Judy's family. She was an amazing person. I worked with Judy for many years at the Arsenal and she always had a smile and loved a good joke. The world needs more Judys.

I remember meeting Judy through the Cornbelt Running Club and from races. I got to know her better when I got involved with Cornbelt Womens 101, she was the founding mother. She had a vision to expand womens running/walking, by giving ladies opportunity to get active, by making it affordable. She always thought of ways to keep improving our program. Judy said "lets do practice race for out participants " and we did. The program went from 8 participants to 140. She said "maybe someday we will need a larger venue like the Taxslayer for our participants. Always looking forward and I know she had a vision for W101. I will truly miss her and loved her friendship. I am so sorry for your loss
