Judy Popp-Anderson, Grief Care Coordinator at Bonnerup Funeral & Cremation Services, was honored as the Freeborn County Senior Citizen of the Year. The award is based on service and volunteer activities, and she was nominated by the staff at the funeral home. Judy hosts many meaningful grief care and suicide awareness events through the funeral home, and she also graciously volunteers her counseling services with several other organizations: Freeborn County Relay for Life, Mayo Clinic Hospice Grief Support, Freeborn County Crisis Response Team, and more.

But Judy’s special recognition does not stop there. At the Minnesota State Fair, she was also chosen as the 2019 Outstanding Senior Citizen of the Year for the state of Minnesota!
