Judith Joan Steinbrook, age 93 of Omaha, IL passed from this life Saturday, December 21, 2019.  Judy, as most knew her, was born on July 19, 1926 in St. Paul, MN to the late Otis and Maude (Martin) Pinnell. Judy married Bob Steinbrook on February 6, 1944.  They enjoyed 72 years of marriage before he preceded her in death in 2016.
