Judith Judy Elin Sheffield, the only daughter of Harold and Ellen (Landgren) Jung, was born on June 7, 1937, in Mason City, Iowa. Her early school years were spent in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Charles City, Iowa. In 1949, the family moved to Clarion, Iowa, and Judy graduated from Clarion High School in 1955. She attended Luther College for 2 years to get a teaching certificate. She then taught in Klemme and Goldfield, Iowa. Judy was married in 1957, and 3 sons were born to this union: Danny, David, and Richard. On August 9, 1969, she was married to Thomas J.
