Judith Redline

October 14, 1945 — February 10, 2022

Bailey, CO

Judith Toman Redline passed on to a new adventure on February 10, surrounded by her three children in her meticulously appointed home in Bailey, Colorado. Judith (Judy to anybody who knew her) was born into a Polish American family in Milwaukee in 1945. The date is up for debate as observers (based on her glamorous and youthful looks) and Judy herself have floated 1955 and 1960 as possible birth dates.

Judy became the first member of her family to attend and graduate from college (University of Wisconsin). On campus she was active in the 60s political movements and that’s how she met her first husband with whom she created her children (Dara, David and Cheryl). Her greatest pride was always in her children. She made her mark in Philadelphia in the 1970s as a buyer for a major department store.

In the early 1980s Judy switched things up and married her second husband, a special forces Army Ranger. He took Judy and the kids with him to Army bases around the world (aka the Southeastern U.S.). During this period Judy attained her Masters degree in Psychology from Austin Peay University (Let’s go Peay!). She used that degree to counsel soldiers and then after divorcing the Army life (and husband) she worked as a custody mediator in North Carolina, touching the lives of children and families with grace and empathy.

As an empty nester, Judy became active in local theater productions as an actress, stage manager and costume designer. One of her co-stars was a man who could actually keep up with her in conversation. They would go a thousand miles an hour but were respectful of not interrupting each other. Naturally they moved in and spent a wonderful decade together.

For her fourth act (most people get three, not Judy), she hand picked the tiny mountain town of Bailey, Colorado (Alt. 9 million ft). It was in Bailey that Judy made her biggest mark, and her best friends. When a local thrift shop that she volunteered at abruptly closed, she summoned her fellow volunteers to her kitchen table and with a rousing speech she inspired them to rebrand the store as the PCCP Boutique. Her leadership inspired this group of classy, intelligent and talented women to raise money for multiple causes that impacted the lives of countless Coloradans. Through their tireless volunteer work, these women became a community and a family, and the Boutique became an anchor of the Bailey community.

Judy was a voracious reader and expert on all things pop culture. She could hold conversations on subjects from the Tudor dynasty to Lady Gaga. She loved Motown, Mozart and all of her TV shows. She never gave up her dream of Anson Mount from “Hell on Wheels” sweeping her off her feet. Judy was best known for her beauty, her leadership, her style, her class, her eye for design, her passion, her warm heart, her intelligence, and her joie de vivre.

Judy is survived in this life by her boundless creativity, the lives she touched through her work, and her three children who adore her.

A Celebration of life will be held in May of 2022, please contact the family for details.
