Judy spent the last two years in sunny Florida, where she enjoyed the warm weather and beautiful flowers.
She was a faithful member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Judy loved serving the Lord and enjoyed volunteering at her local church in various ministries including church treasurer, children ministries, fellowship meals and mailing cards and information to church members. She always enjoyed reading her Bible each morning. She also liked reading the local newspapers of central Illinois. In her spare time, Judy enjoyed doing word search puzzles and caring for her plants and flowers. She enjoyed music and she played the piano and accordion. She enjoyed researching the genealogy of her family and friends and also was a member of the Moultrie County Historical Society.
She always maintained an accurate calendar of family and friends’ birthdays and special occasions and faithfully sent a card with a note of encouragement. Often, she sent care packages to her children and grandchildren when they were away at academy or college. Judy enjoyed riding her bike in the evenings and loved taking drives in her car to visit familiar places throughout central Illinois. She also loved talking about and looking at pictures of classic cars and trucks, especially those her family owned when she was young.
Judy cherished her family, loved Jesus with all her heart and lived a life of kindness and compassion.
