Judie was the daughter of Robert and Florence Roberts, and was born in Muscatine, Iowa on Sept 23, 1939. Her father was a minister for various churches in the Midwest, and they moved a number of times.  Judie graduated from Montello High school in 1957. This is where she met her first husband Roy Salzwedel.  Roy joined the Air Force and they lived on military bases throughout the United States. While raising a family, Judie always stayed in close contact with both her and Roy’s families in Wisconsin. Judie and Roy divorced while living in Boise. She worked for Buttery/Osco until their closing, then went on to do Property Management until her retirement. It was during this time that she met and married Charles Brown on August 4, 1996 in Boise. They lived in Boise until her death.

Judie was very involved with her family, church, Boise State Broncos, and the Green Bay Packers. She loved animals, especially her little Bitty. Once Judie decided you were a friend or family you could do no wrong. She would defend you as only a mother could. Judie took great joy and comfort from her family. She attended many family functions, and especially enjoyed doting on the little ones. Judie regularly enjoyed the fellowship and worship at the South Valley Baptist Church. Throughout the rewards and struggles of life, Judie never wavered in her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. She had a fierce faith in the message and journey he had planned for her. During football season, Judie knew her teams could hear her from the stands or through the television. She would rarely miss a game. Her biggest goal in life was to have her entire family happy at the same time. With this in mind, she would work tirelessly to accomplish this, often at great cost to herself. She was a tenacious champion for the underdogs in life. She was generous to a fault and her compassion knew no boundaries. Judie touched many lives and was a positive influence on all she met. If someone cries when you leave this Earth, than you have lived well. Judie’s passing is met by many, many tears.
Judie was preceded in death by her parents Robert and Florence Roberts, Sister Ardyth Woznaik, brother Terry Roberts, ex-husband Roy Salzwedel, granddaughter Trishten Potts, daughter in-law Laurie Salzwedel,  step-son Alan Brown and step-daughter Connie Brown.

Judie is survived by her Husband Charles Brown, daughter Linda and Bob Potts, son Bob and Roben Salzwedel, daughter Laura Salzwedel-Karren and Gene Karren, step daughter Amy Brown, grandchildren Alex and Bonnie Ybarra, Terra Ybarra, Jamie and Bob Berthiaume, Nick and Ashley Salzwedel, Samantha and Casey Blackmon, Mallory Fry, Keenan Fry, Evan and Neyva Salzwedel, Travis Burke, Shawn and Stephanie Burke, great grandchildren Hudson and Harrison Ybarra, Zach Loretto, Karmen and Isabelle Johnson, Ava and Eli Berthiaume, Cruz and Pepper Salzwedel, Owen, Kryee and Evangeline Salzwedel, Ethan Burke, Savanah, Trinity, Traeton and Sadie Burke, brother Jim and Judy Roberts and family, Sister in law Lena Roberts and family, sister in law Mary Isberner, sister in law Janice and Mike Kollazar and families.
