Judith Wolber Obituary

Judith Alice Wolber passed peacefully at Solace Hospice in Asheville, NC early Sunday
morning, February 11th, 2024.

Reception and viewing will be held at Grace Lutheran Church, Boone, NC Friday, February 16th, beginning at 1:00 pm followed by service at 2:00 pm and burial at Bethany Lutheran Church Cemetery.

Judy was born December 15th, 1961 to Reverend Herbert and Daisy Mae Wolber in Sandusky, Ohio.

She is preceded in death by both her parents and older sister, Marilyn Jean VanCleve.

She is survived by her older brothers Timothy Wolber of Rapid City, South Dakota and Daniel Wolber of Danbury, North Carolina, and their respective wives Joyce Wolber and Sally Ivey Wolber as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

 Judy’s childhood years were well-lived in Ohio and Kentucky.

She was a 1980 graduate of Venice High School in Venice, Florida before moving to Boone, NC in 1986 where she lived an active life in church and community service musical performance.

Well-known at local venues, Judy was a trained vocalist and songwriter who shared stages with legendary fiddler Ralph Blizzard and Doc Watson and many others in the folk and bluegrass festival circuit.

Judy traveled extensively with her family as young girl throughout the United States as well as Germany. These experiences nurtured her sense of musical adventure and immediate, quick friend relationships with people from all walks of life. In the words of her close longtime friends, Judy was “the sweetest girl ever” and “all that’s good in the world.”
