Obituary: Judith Louise Vasconcelos

March 31, 1938 - April 7, 2013

Our beloved Mother, Grandmother, educator and friend, Judy left us suddenly on April 7, 2013. Born in Sacramento, California on March 31, 1938, Judy moved to Reno with her father, Louis, and attended local schools including Reno High School and University of Nevada - Reno, and the University of Pacific where she attained her master’s degree in education. Judy was a lifelong educator in the Washoe County School District teaching at Trainer Middle School and Reno High School where she spent the majority of her 29 year career. At Reno High School she taught English, theater and led the debate teams to many State titles.

Anyone that knew Judy knew of her passion for dogs and dog training. She taught many dog obedience classes in Reno and Fallon. She also enjoyed her bridge group in Fallon and looked forward to her weekly get-togethers.

Judy is survived by her step brother, Greg Brouner (Sue); two children, Michael Ginsburg (Dana), and daughter, Tracy Burgener (Todd); grandchildren, Whitney, Mikayla & Danielle Ginsburg and Thieren, Grayson & Callum Burgener all of whom she loved.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, May 25th 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Horseman’s Park club house, 2800 Pioneer Drive, corner of Skyline Blvd. and Pioneer Drive in Reno

In lieu of flowers and in memory of Judy, donations can be made in her name to the Fallon Animal Shelter, 1255 Airport Rd., Fallon, Nevada 89406
