Judith “Judy” Arnell Henriksen

Judith “Judy” Arnell Henriksen passed away Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017, at Cranberry Court in Tomah. She was born Feb. 10, 1945, to Howard and Anne Marie (Williamson) Henriksen in LuVerne, Minn.

She married David Graphenteen on Oct. 25, 1969. They later divorced. Judy had two children, Suzann “Sue” and Scott. She spent her working years cleaning houses in the area, Ron and Jean Plueger and Riversend Bar, to name a few. 

Judy’s life was her children, grandchildren and great-granddaughter. While she was well, Judy loved going to AA in Oil City. She was also an avid Viking fan. Her infectious laugh and sense of humor will be deeply missed by her family.

She is survived by her children, Suzann (Scott) Poff of Ontario and Scott (Julie) Graphenteen of Rockland, Wis.; her grandchildren, Brandon (Kim) Carlson of Cashton, Bridget Carlson of Norwalk, WI, and Taylor Graphenteen of Ontario; her great-granddaughter, Tenley Carlson; her brother and sister-in-law, Gar and Elaine Henriksen of Brandon, S.D.; and her favorite ex-son-in-law, Mark Carlson. Judy is further survived by her Cranberry Court family, whom she and her family grew to love over her stay, as well as nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her brothers, Merle and Clair; a sister-in-law, Kay; and a niece, Jill Voyles.

Judy’s family would like to give a special thank you to the Cranberry Court staff, Tomah Hospice Touch and Pastor Bob Streeter for the care given to Judy during this difficult time.

A Celebration of Judy’s life will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, at the Riversend Bar in Ontario. Burial will be held at the Maplewood Cemetery in LuVerne, Minn., a later date. The Torkelson Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements. Online condolences are available at www.torkelsonfuneralhome.com.
