Judith R. Rooney, 86, died June 18, 2020, in Satanta District Hospital, Satanta, Kansas. She was born February 23, 1934 in Norton, Kansas, the daughter of William Walter Rouse and Winifred Maureen (Corley) Rouse. Judy graduated from Fort Hays State University, Class of 1956. She married Archie Franklin Rooney on March 30, 1956. Following graduation, they settled in a house on the family farm that was won in a poker game. Archie and Judy were married for 51 years before he passed in July 2007.

In addition to her husband and parents she was preceded in death by her sister, Ann Hazlett. Surviving are her son, William Patrick Rooney and wife, Jeanette of Satanta; daughters, Ardith R. Dunn and husband, Kent of Satanta, RoxAnn R. Rooney and her husband, Robert Miller of Treasure Island, FL; seven grandchildren, Jill Wahl (John), Julie Wankel (Les), Jayme Dunn (Kilah), Bret Rooney (Carlie), Jason Dunn (Courtney), Tera Barnhardt (Sheldon), Joshua Dunn and two step grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; four nieces and nephews.

Judy was a member of the Satanta United Methodist Church, Satanta Chamber of Commerce (President 1970), Satanta Arts Council, Owaissa Club and a regular attendee of several of the local bridge clubs. She was named Satanta Chamber of Commerce Senior Citizen of the Year in 2002.

If you’ve enjoyed bulletin boards, signs and buttons around Satanta, Judy probably created or designed them. Satanta Day was a busy time for her as she decorated bikes, cars and floats for the parade. Her Kids and Grandkids remember her helping design and decorating Proms, Homecoming backdrops, lockers and bulletin boards at the Grade School and High School. Various clubs around Satanta enjoyed her themed table decorations. She painted the Indian on the High School old gymnasium floor. She designed the tile entryway to the High School concession area and the City water tower Indian. Judy also designed the badge for the Tumbleweed Girl Scout Council of Kansas.

Judy was a behind the scenes person but we all new who the creator was due to her unique style that everyone recognized. Many of you can picture Grandma Judy in her Satanta Indian’s Sweatshirt coming into the ballgame with her bag of suckers.

In lieu of flowers a memorial has been established for Satanta District Hospital. Memorials may be mailed to Robson Funeral Home, P.O. 747, Satanta, Kansas 67870.

Visitation will be held June 21, 2020, 2 PM to 8 PM with family receiving friends from 6 PM to 8 PM.
A private family funeral service will be held, and burial will be held at Dudley Township Cemetery, Satanta, Kansas.

Ardith, Pat and RoxAnn,
Sorry to hear about the passing of your mother, my condolences to all of the family. She was a special lady that did a lot for the town of Satanta. Your parents were good friends with mom and dad.

Judy and Arch Rooney were two of the finest people I have known. Their biggest credit is the children they raised followed up by the grand children of today’s generation....... Terry Odle - Salina/Stockton
