Alvera Solyst

d. October 19, 2014

Alvera M. "Judy" Solyst, 94, of Austin, died Sunday, October 19, 2014 at Mayo Clinic Health System of Austin. Judy was born in Cresco, IA on April 24, 1920 to Leslie and Marie (Petrik) Judd. She attended and graduated from St. Augustine Catholic School in 1938. On March 24, 1940, Judy married Archie P. Solyst. As a young adult, she worked at Sears as a designer. Judy also worked at Kloggies Ice Cream for a couple of years. During WWII, she worked at Hormel Foods as well. Judy was a very artistic lady who loved to cook. Her love of art showed in her cooking by bringing out her designs in the food that she prepared. For Judy, preparing meals was very important. She also enjoyed reading and when computers came out in the 1980's she took classes on how to use them. She truly was a lady that was "ahead of her time". Judy is survived by her children; Gary (Zu) Solyst of St. Paul, Kay Solyst of Austin, Susane Solyst, Janelle Blaser, and Lorri (Bill) Solyst-Terpenny all of St. Paul; grandchildren, Ryan Solyst, Mark Solyst, Nicole Blaser and Scott Blaser; great-grandchildren Sara Solyst and Ryan Johns; a sister, Sharon (Dick) Heikkla. Judy is preceded in death by her parents, and her husband Archie on June 22, 2012. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated 2:00 pm on Friday, October 24, 2014 at St. Edward's Catholic Church with Fr. Jim Steffes officiating. Friends may call one hour before the service at the church on Friday. Interment will be in Calvary Cemetery. Online Condolences- www.mayerfh.com
