Judy Lea Tuff


As was her nature, Judy Lea Tuff made a quiet exit from this world, May 28, 2021, in Naples, FL.

Judy was born to Casey & Delores (Jobe) DeKramer on July 16, 1937 in Tyndall, SD. She married Bob Tuff, on Nov. 22, 1954, in Bemidji, MN.

Over the years, Bob and Judy owned and operated news publications in Blackduck, MN; Blue Earth, MN; Everglades City, FL; and Naples, FL. Bob passed in 1993.

No matter where God planted her, Judy thrived and was loved by many. Her amazing faith in God’s abundant goodness brought her through many life challenges and her spirituality was a gift she shared freely.  She will be forever loved.

She is survived by her daughter Sheila (Bob) Rutt, daughter Sandra (Leonard) Krumholz, son Russell (Kaydee); son Roy (Maria), son Ralph (Kathy); 11 amazing grandchildren and 12 of the most beautiful great-grandchildren in the world.

A celebration of Judy’s life will be held at 10 a.m., Saturday, July 31, at Trinity-by-the-Cove Church in Naples, FL. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Archangel Fund at Trinity, or the Church of the Good Shepherd Memorial Fund, Punta Gorda.
