Obituary for Jude W. Ubersox

Jude W. Ubersox, age 81 of Shullsburg, WI passed away at Luther Manor Grand Meadows in Asbury, IA on May 8, 2020. He was born on August 18, 1938, the son of Walter and Margaret (Monahan) Ubersox. As a child, he attended St. Matthew’s Catholic School and worked on the family farm. When Jude turned 18, he started his career as a truck driver by delivering milk with his own truck. Jude also hauled gravel for Mowry Trucking and for many years (1962-2000), hauled milk for Mc-Mor-Han Trucking Co./Korth Transfer. Jude received the first CDL in the state of Wisconsin in 1990. He was awarded Truck Driver of the Year in 1991 and drove over 3 million, accident-free, and citation-free miles.

Extended family and friends are encouraged to pay their final respects from the sidelines along Jude’s last ride from Erickson Funeral Home on Judgement St., to HWY 11 at approximately 12:00pm on Saturday, May 16, 2020. Please follow social distancing guidelines.
