Janette “Tuddy” Gertrude Schure was born May 1, 1925, in Lindsay, to Henry Joseph and Gertrude Mary (Schaecher) Albracht. She attended school in Humphrey and graduated from Humphrey St. Francis High School in 1943, later attending classes at Platte Community College in Columbus. On Aug. 22, 1945, Tuddy was united in marriage to Richard “Dick” George Schure in Humphrey. They farmed south of Humphrey for many years before moving into Humphrey in 1990. Tuddy helped on the farm and also helped as a USDA statistician. Tuddy enjoyed playing games, especially 500 Rummy, sewing, traveling to national parks or wherever a car would take her. She liked studying family history and going to family gatherings.
Our beloved Tuddy radiated kindness, love, strength and a zest for life to all she met. She showed us all an amazing example of how to live. She had an uncanny ability to make everyone around her feel like they had a special place in her heart, and they probably did. Her heart was endless! Her powerful smile and twinkle in her eyes would light up any room. Tuddy was selfless, always worrying about someone else, even during her final days. Her laughter, her joy, her comedic timing, her spunk, her kindness will be her legacy. She could one-up everyone with her always ready and final spoken words, “I love you more”.
