December 19, 1945 - October 28, 2012, Tulsa, Oklahoma Three months have gone since Judy became one of Heaven’s angels on October 28, 2012 and the loss is still felt by all. Judy wore her compassion on her sleeve and was an inspiration to everyone who knew her. She was a mentor, friend, doctor, and family member who gave her love purely and deeply. Thank you Judy for the love, laughter, wisdom and care you brought into our lives and for the joy, comfort and depth you brought into our spirits. Thank you for the eternal memory and companionship you continue to bring to our souls. Memories of you will remain in our hearts forever. Judy’s greatest treasures were her sons, Aaron and Adrian, grandchildren, Taylor, Pressley, Brittany and Tanner and precious great-grandchild, Aniston. Her mom Susie held a special place in her heart, as did her sister, Linda, brother, Jimmy, steps, Kaye, Ann, David and Suzanne, as well as, cousins, nieces, nephews and a multitude of dear friends. Judy was an animal lover and her registered Arabian horse, Star, was treasured and loved for 24 years. Judy loved life and her passion for friends and family was unequalled. She was interested in the well-being and happiness of those around her. She showed how much her friends were valued, appreciated and loved. Nothing made her happier than being with family and friends. Judy was very talented. She had a beautiful voice and sang on Channel 8 while still a teen. While attending Will Rogers High School, she cut her first record, “An Old Love, A True Love” and “Cheating, Cheat- ing, Cheating,” which went to #6 on local stations. She signed a contract with Frank Sinatra’s label but wasn’t willing to leave Tulsa to pursue it. She also liked oil painting for her own enjoyment. She also taught the art of stained glass in her studio in Bixby and many of her students have become true artists. She copied Las Vegas and opened a wedding chapel in Fort Worth, TX serving as a wedding planner and providing all goods and services necessary for a wedding. Her weddings and receptions were held at her chapel as well as other locations and, because of their beauty, were featured on Channel 5 television in Fort Worth. After so many opportunities, she found her true calling and became a certified Doctor of Naturopathy. She taught for many years the art and science of ancient herbal healing and the science and practice of Iridology. She was passionate about giving back and providing her undivided care to her followers. Judy was able to attend NSP conventions worldwide for twenty years and was loved by all of the NSP people. She had the good fortune of traveling coast to coast in the US and, cruising the Caribbean and Mediterranean. She made many trips and loved Hawaii so much that she purchased a condo on Maui. Her passing was sudden and many of us were unable to say goodbye. She knew that she was loved but I don’t think she knew how much she would be missed. email@example.com This memoriam was published in the Tulsa World on 2/13/2013.
