Judith Ann Jungk , of Leawood, Kansas, loving mother, sister, aunt and friend, left us for her heavenly home on Thursday, October 29, 2020.

She was born on March 12, 1948 to Walter and Loretta Jungk in Dubuque, IA. The family moved to Kansas City in 1950, joining the congregation St Elizabeth’s Catholic Church. Judy graduated from St. Teresa’s Academy, then earned her Bachelors in Education from Pittsburg State and her Masters in Education from Webster University.

Judy taught for over 30 years at Holy Trinity Catholic School in Lenexa, Kansas and Millcreek Elementary in the Shawnee Mission School District. She was a passionate and dedicated teacher who impacted thousands of young students throughout her career.

Her greatest joy in life was being a mother to her son, Christopher Jungk. Judy will be well remembered for her contagious laugh, generous nature and willingness to help anyone in need. She volunteered at Seton Center in Kansas City, MO for many years.

Judy was preceded in death by her parents, Walter and Loretta Jungk. She is survived by her son, Christopher Jungk, her brothers John Jungk (Venice, FL) and Bill Jungk (Orange, CA), and numerous nieces and nephews.

Services for Judy will be held at Curé of Ars Catholic Church, 9401 Mission Rd., Leawood, KS on Wednesday, November 4, 2020. Visitation will be from 9-10 am, followed by Mass of Christian Burial at 10 am and interment at Mount Moriah Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to be made to Seton Center.

Judy and I experienced teaching in the yard of MillCreek school portables together! We loved those kids together and had such joy teaching them. Judy was a smart, loving teacher and I am so thankful to have had time in my life to teach with her. God bless this kind person as she gave much love to our world.

Chris~ your mom is remembered as a positive and dedicated lady. Much sympathy to you for your loss. Her funeral mass was moving and your comments at the end, did extend the tears. She is surely proud and smiling upon you.

Hi Dear Chris,

Yes, you were indeed the absolute JOY of her life. She lived for you, loved you, and carried you in her heart. Always remember the sweet talks she shared about her parents and of herself -- in feeling "visiting angels" nearby -- and their help. She will be watching over you for sure.

And she was absolutely the most amazing and dedicated teacher who enjoyed her students and her staff members. She was a major part of the Mill Creek "Do-Ops" who brought such joy and laughter and FUN to Mill Creek -- she, along with best friends, Beth Harrison, and Steve Mallin. They were such a delight! She is surely now enjoying much fun with precious Beth! You will be covered in prayer these next weeks, Chris! You were the delight of her heart! Prayers and blessings, Jane (and George) Bocox

We were so very saddened to read of Judy's passing. She was always such a dear, sweet person and I saw her often when Chris and our son were in school together. Our deepest condolences to Chris and Judy's brothers on the loss of your mother and sister. May God give comfort to all of you.

Judy was a caring, hard-working teacher. She enjoyed her students and fellow teachers as much as we enjoyed her. Judy had the best smile! She was so proud of her son, Chris, and that smile was always evident when she was sharing a story about him. My deepest condolences to her family.
