Judith Marie ‘Judy’ Barnes

April 9, 1954 – June 21, 2020
Born on April 9, 1954 to Betty and Jack Bitz, she was the middle girl of three, and born to stand out. As she grew up, every day it became more apparent that she was truly unique.
Judy was and is the most dedicated, encouraging, eccentric and gentle soul a person could ever encounter. Her hard work was incredibly honourable.
Judy was known as a daughter, sister, cousin, niece, mother, grandmother, great- grandmother, wife, love and a friend. Leaving an unimaginable impression in the hearts of all she met.
On Sunday, June 21, 2020, Judy passed away very unexpectedly but doing something she loved almost as much as she loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. It was a tragic motorcycle accident, with her love Arnold Watson, that took the life of such a beautiful soul that Sunday afternoon.
Judy leaves behind an extensive list of family and friends that will never forget her. Her fianceĢ Arnold Watson, mother Elizabeth Marie Bitz, sisters Jackie (Bill) “Sonny” Johnson and Gail (Gordy) Lamb, her daughters Jane Marie
Deschamps and Jodie Lyn Deschamps (Carl Oulton), grandchildren; Crystal Ann Deschamps (Brandon Young), Cassandra Marie Deschamps (Karl Prevost), Cody Aaron Boehm, Jason Christopher Deschamps, Stephanie Marie Deschamps and Taylor Lesley Deschamps, her great-grandchildren; Tomi-Lynn Myka O’How, Stevie-Ann Freya Clifton, Rorik Dion Young, Zane Howard-Lee Ericsson-Boehm, Ellie Barbra- Jane Ericsson-Boehm and Raylee Ann-Marie Deschamps as well as many more devoted family and friends.
May your personality live on through stories told, and may your soul rest in peace.
