Both Judy’s parents John Jacob Eimer and Opal
(Devine), along with her older brother, were born in
or around Lincoln. In the mid-1930s they moved from
Lincoln to Dubuque Iowa where Judy was born on
February 17, 1940. She grew up there working in her
parents’ florist business, Eimer's Greenhouse.
In her late teens, she married Jack Schueller and
had her first son, Randy. Sadly she was widowed at
the young age of 20.
A few years later she was remarried to Jerry Connor
and moved to Illinois. She and Jerry had two more
sons over the next several years, Bill and Steve.
They lived in various small towns in central
Illinois before settling down outside of Lincoln in
Jerry’s hometown of Beason.
After raising three sons, Judy went to work at the Lincoln Medical Center where
she was in charge of medical records. She retired in 2000.
Judy enjoyed annual vacation trips to the Ozarks with family and friends, and
for several years she and Jerry would spend much of the winter months in Cancun.
Survivors include her husband Jerry Connor of Beason; sons Randy ( Nadia)
Schueller of Park Ridge, Bill Connor of Springfield, and Steve ( Anna) Connor of
Lincoln, grandchildren: Matt Schueller, Nicole Schueller, Laura Connor, Ryan
Connor, and Evan Connor. Her brother John Eimer Jr. of Lincoln also survives.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her infant sister Phyllis Eimer.
