Obituary

Judy I. (Berning) Markle passed away on September 1, 2018 in Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio on January 9, 1943 to Ed and Irene (Bennette) Berning she is preceded by her brothers Ralph, Paul, and Ken.

Driven by a deep spiritual faith Judy is best remembered for her dedication to human rights, social justice, environmental protection and conservancy, and nuclear disarmament which was well demonstrated by her volunteerism, advocacy, and activism throughout her lifetime. From delivering Meals on Wheels in Detroit, running support groups for breast cancer and domestic violence at the Downriver YWCA, protesting nuclear arms in Oak Ridge, TN, and marching with the Peace Action Network in multiple states to bring the struggles throughout the world to light; Judy’s commitment was effective and commendable. Judy received degrees from Wayne State University in Liberal Arts and Social Work and was an active member of St. Ambrose Parish during her time in Michigan.

Judy will be deeply missed by her husband of 50 years, David, daughter Ruth, sons Gordon and Matthew (Vida) Markle and grandchildren Zoe Rose and Julia, along with Ken Irvin and Patricia Droulliard who gave her tremendous comfort and care in her final years.
