Judy met the love of her life in the summer of 1965; they were married two years later on August 5, 1967 in Marcus, WA. She then moved to Rossland where she resided until her death. Judy was employed at Cominco (Teck) in Trail. She started her career in 1976 in the lead refinery, worked as a security guard for a short time, and finished as a timekeeper in the smelter area.

Judy found her happiness in her family and friends and loved everything outdoors. She was an avid hunter (she could out shoot Dan), fishermen, camper and equestrian. She loved going home to the farm and spending quality time with family and friends. Judy was loved & cherished by all who knew her. She always had a smile on her face, a song in her heart (tapping fingers & toes included) and something positive to say to all she met.

The family is requesting no food or flowers please, but donations to The Heart & Stoke Foundation, under Judy’s name are welcome.
