Judson McDougall

Judson Noble McDougall 90 of St. Louis, Missouri, died Monday evening, Jan. 16, 2023.

Jud was born on Aug. 27, 1932, east of Le Mars.

It was there where he met Lorraine Utesch in high school, and they became the Senior King and Queen of the Homecoming Festivities. The couple was married on Aug. 29, 1952.

Jud started his career as a manager of Lambert Lumber Yard for several years prior to working for W. R. Grace, Construction Products where he worked for 36 years before retirement.

Jud enjoyed golf, playing cards, watching his beloved Nebraska Cornhusker Football, model railroading, traveling in their RV with the Winnebago Club, and spending time with family.

His pastime was his research of the McDougall family genealogy dating back to the 1100ís. Judís most memorable trip was the six weeks that he and Lorraine traveled to Scotland to visit the McDougall Castles in Oban, Scotland.

Jud and Lorraine have been active members of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church starting in 1971. They served in the Choir, were youth, sponsors, Sunday School teacher, the Bethel Bible Series instructor and representative for the St Louis area; an advisor to Pastor, and Church Council President.

Jud had an infectious sense of humor, always had a story to share, and always could make everyone laugh.

His greatest love was his family. His only regret was not being able to hold his newest great-grandson.

Jud is survived by his wife of 70 years, Lorraine P. McDougall; three children, Pamela Danneman, David McDougall, and Beth Malm; five grandchildren: Alexander McDougall, Lauren (Malm) Tennies, Kevin Danneman, Kelsey (McDougall) Martin, and Melisa (Malm) Rainbolt; and six great-grandchildren, Seth Coffel, Kamryn Martin, Natalie Tonnies, Piper Rainbolt, Hazel Rainbolt, and Bennett Martin.

Visitation was at 10 a.m., Saturday Feb. 4, at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, St. Louis, Missouri, with the memorial service following at 10:30 a.m., at the church. Interment will be private.

St. Louis Cremation was in charge of arrangements.
