Judith A. Hasselbach, 56

January 30, 1965 - November 08, 2021

Judith A. Hasselbach, 56, of Manheim Twp., passed away unexpectedly at home on Monday, November 8, 2021. Born in Ephrata, she was the daughter of Charles J. Mellinger and D. Jane (Siegrist) Hess, and the step-daughter of Donald S. Hess. Judy was the loving wife of Douglas L. Hasselbach, and they celebrated 39 years of marriage this past October 30.

Judy graduated from Manheim Township High School with the Class of 1983. Over the years she worked in retail management for Leslie Fay and Dress Barn, and also as a real estate agent. She regularly volunteered her time at the Water Street Mission in Lancaster and was a member of Oregon Community United Methodist Church in Lititz. Known to family and friends as “Judy Rudy”, she enjoyed reading, and loved spending time with family, friends and her grandchildren. She also had a very special place in her heart for her pets – 3 spoiled rotten dogs and 1 very large “dat” – the cat that thinks he’s a dog!

A loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Judy will be deeply missed by her daughters, Jessica Ullrich and her husband Josh of Hanover, and Jane M. Alleman and her husband Shawn of Manheim; her grandchildren, Tyler Shirey (Dana), Treavor Shirey, Malinda Shirey, Madison Shirey, Savannah Alleman and Amanda Alleman; and her great-grandchild, Ember Shirey. Also surviving is her brother, Charles J. Mellinger, Jr., and sisters Jina Rosenkrans, Julie Peters, and Jenn Worley.

Family and friends are invited to attend a Memorial Service which will take place at 3:00 PM on Friday, 19, 2021, at the Oregon Community United Methodist Church, 1214 Creek Road, Lititz, PA, 17543, where the family will receive guests beginning at 2:00 PM. Interment will follow in the church cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family would greatly appreciate contributions in Judy’s memory be made to the Water Street Mission, 210 South Prince Street, P O Box 7508, Lancaster, PA 17603.

I had the pleasure of getting to know and working with Judy many years ago at Leslie Fay. Judy was a great boss who had an incredible work ethic and going to work was a joy because it was like we were all family. Judy attended my wedding and helped my husband and I get our home. Judy I am forever grateful for the many kindnesses that you extended to me! You were an inspiration to all those around you! My heartfelt condolences are with your family and loved ones. You will be greatly missed, but my heart has hope in Christ’s promises to us of eternal life.

I am so sorry to hear of the sudden passing of such a wonderful, kind, loving, and beautiful Lady! Judy was just so sweet and so loving. She loved her husband and kids and grandkids and great grandchild so much, she told me several times how very proud she was of each one! She always wore a smile even though she was in so much pain. Knowing her was an honor and a treasure! I will miss her so very much!!!!!

Judy Rudy, you are more than just a good friend you are a sister of the heart! I’m having a hard time writing this without the tears falling down! Your spirit shines for everyone. If someone needed you you dropped what you were doing to help them out the best you could. I won’t go to friendly’s ice cream without thinking of you, many days after work we would go there! The last couple years life has not been kind to the body but through it all you never lost your spirit! Your spirit’s journey here bound by the earthly chains is now free because the spirit doesn’t die only your body fails I’m sad for us earthly souls that have to say goodbye to you but I’m happy for the spirit worlds as a welcome you to this part of your journey. I want you to know I’ll be there for you girls whatever they need and for your husband if you need someone to talk to I’ll be there too! Jessica, Jane, and Doug she loved you with all her ❤️ and she forever will be by your side! May you find peace and comfort in that love! Remember I’m about a phone call away love you all. Aunt Cyndi.
