Judy is what we call her.  Judy worked in the Domestic Services field, and later becoming a nanny for over 40 years.  She enjoyed skating, bowling, cooking, and hanging with her “B & G Girls” on the casino bus.  Judy was the life of any party.  She raised many children in her life.

Judy had the kind of personality that everyone loved.  If you were in her presence, she made you feel welcomed and loved.  She would help anyone in their time of need with no questions asked.  She was a lady with many titles and wore them to perfection.  She was very big on family. She was the biggest Chiefs fan in all of Kansas City, Missouri. “LET’S GO CHIEFS!!!”

Six years ago, Judy was diagnosed with cancer, but she didn’t let it change her life, or how she wanted to live it.  She was a fighter.  She enjoyed attend worship services with her daughter, and later became a member of Calvary Chapel Church of God in Christ under the leadership of Pastor Harold Molden, Sr. Over the last six months, Judy was on hospice, but she still wanted to enjoy her life freely until her transition from her earthly home to her heavenly home.
