Judith Ellen Liebnitzky

Judith Ellen Liebnitzky, age 73, formerly of Tarpon Springs, FL, passed away April 16, 2017.  She was born February 13, 1944 to Robert Benjamin Rosenbaum and Rose Ann Mintzer in Bergenfield, NJ.  She came to Florida in 1981 after travelling the country with her family.  She lived in Boca Raton until moving to Tarpon Springs in 1996.

In her early working life, Judith was the Administrative Assistant to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Jr in New York City for several years.  It was then she met and eventually married her husband, Frederick Liebnitzky who was just returning from the Vietnam War.  She then moved on to become a devoted wife and mother.  Later in life, she became a real estate agent.

Judith loved reading novels, antiquing, and spending her time with family and friends.  Her greatest attribute was that she always made everyone in her life feel as they were special.  All of her friends she considered as family and there were no strangers in her life.  She was an adventure seeker, avid traveler and always looking for new challenges.  She lived life to fullest and did her best to enjoy every moment of it.

Judith is survived by her loving husband of 43 years, Frederick Liebnitzky; her sons, Jason (Allison) and Brian (Tracy) Liebnitzky; her brothers: Walter Rosenbaum, Allan Rosenbaum, and Elliot Sherman; and her grandchildren: Ella, Kylee, Connor, and Rylie Liebnitzky.  She is preceded in death by her brothers, Gerald Rosenbaum and David Sherman.

A gathering of friends and family will be held at Michels & Lundquist Funeral Home on Thursday, April 20 from 3:30pm to 5pm with a celebration of life service to follow.

    Mrs. Karen King, husband John, and daughters Laura Widecrantz & Stephanie Boor says:
    Judy was always there to talk to as I went through my back surgeries, and always asking about my daughters and their children. She was a kind and loving person and was the love of Fred's life, as was he for her. We would text back and forth about getting to see each other once I moved to Florida with my new husband but something always came up and our schedules never allowed it. But I fond memories of one Thanksgiving when Fred and Judy lived at the shore in New Jersey on the beach for the winter. We had a great Thanksgiving that day. We all laughed and walked along the boardwalk. I will never forget that time we spent together. Judy you will be sadly missed. You took a little piece of my heart when you left to be with our Lord. You have been called home way to soon. With all my love and deepest sympathy to Fred and his family. Your cuz Karen

    Judy and I grew up around the corner from one another, so I knew her and her entire family for my whole life. Although I haven't seen her since she lived in Winston-Salem NC, we've been in touch on FaceBook. Her sudden death is a shock, and I offer my sincere condolences to Fred and the rest of the family.

    Our children grew up together and Judy was like a mom to all the kids who knew her. Dennis and I have many wonderful memories of Judy and her family and she will be dearly missed. Judy was always happy and positive. Although we didn't spend much personal time together after our kids were grown, we managed to catch up every few years and it was truly a delight to follow her happiness on Facebook.

    Fred & family, So sad to hear of Judy's passing. Stumbled on this news while searching the web. We haven't kept in touch over the years but I think of you, Ruthann and Wayne often. It is always sad when a family member passes away, even when we haven't been close in our adult lives. Our heartfelt sympathy to you and yours. Judy (Liebnitzky) & Walt Dick Bradenton, FL

    Judy (of which I called her Mrs. L)..was one of the best people I’ve ever known. She made a big impact on me at such a young age. I dated her son through college. She treated me like a daughter and taught me so much. We stayed friends all the years later. She was such a warm, loving and amazing person. I’ll never forget her or how kind she was to me. She has been so supportive of me when my daughter was born severely medically needy at the time and has been there even sending cute things and packages for my daughter through the years. I loved her and she will always be missed. I deepest and most sincere condolences to The Liebnitzky Family.
