Jude attended Madison East and Madison West High School in Wisconsin, graduated in 1967, attended and graduated PHD Candidate from University of Wisconsin. She married James Bisbee on November 14, 1987 in Las Vegas NV and they were married for 34 years. Jude retired in 1987. She loved gardening, a very avid fan of Mickey Mouse with a collection of momentous, trinkets, jewelry and always had Christmas tree full of Mickey Mouse ornaments. Jude enjoyed life fully, was very social. She was a patron of Club Rio Rancho, where she enjoyed the swimming pool and socializing with her husband. She absolutely loved her new red, Mazda MX-5 Convertible. After Club Rio Rancho closed, she made Applebee’s, in Rio Rancho, her main “Hangout” and made many friends with staff and other customers. She was often called by her nickname, "Doc". While attending the University of Wisconsin, she played the clarinet in the school band, and before that, in high school, she was the football team cheerleader. During high school, Jude and her older brother, Jim, attended Madison East High School until the family moved to the west side. When the family moved to the west side of Madison, Jude attended Madison West High School, and Jim stayed at Madison East High School so that he could finish high school without changing teams. As a result, Jude was then cheering against her own brother and his team! It made for an interesting dinner conversation, to say the least. She will be missed by all who knew her!
