Obituary Notice

April 21, 1947 to August 28, 2020

A life lived to honor her Savior, Jesus Christ

Prepare us, Lord, by your grace divine
For thy bright courts on high
Then bid our Spirits rise, and join
The chorus of the sky

This vale of tears is but the pathway
To the better country
This world of woe is but the steppingstone
To a world of bliss for those who know Jesus
Christ as their personal Savior

Judith (Judy), knew this Jesus as her personal Savior and now her spirit is in His presence. She didn’t always have Him as her Savior. She had to be “born again.” She was physically born, a sinner, in Noblesville, Indiana. She was “born-again” in Melbourne, Florida when she was 27 by God’s grace. She heard the gospel of Christ and, by faith, accepted Jesus. He proved that He was Messiah by fulfilling all the over 300 prophesies in the Bible about the Savior of the world. Jesus preached about heaven and about Hell. Judy and Jesus do not want anyone to go to hell. People go there by refusing to bend their knee to the Savior, Jesus. He will save you if you repent from your sin and believe who Jesus is and ask Jesus to save you. Judy shared this gospel with her four children, seven grandchildren and wanted to share it with her great-grandchildren. Her prayer is that they all believe in Jesus and live for Him. She followed her husband around the country and to Panama in the Air Force for 21 years. She also was blessed by working with her husband in the International outreach of the Gideons for 31 years. She also taught in a Christian school, tutored, and taught Sunday School for many years. She used her beautiful singing voice to honor and praise the Lord in church and civic events. Her life was a life well spent serving her God here on earth and now, her spirit is in Christ’s presence awaiting the final resurrection of her new body. There is a time to live and a time to die and God knows the time of your death, too: accept Jesus, now. “Whosoever will may come. God’s grace is sufficient to forgive any sin you have committed.” That is what Judy wanted to tell you. Even though we have one less servant here on earth, the Lord will raise up more…maybe you! The family will welcome friends on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 for visitation from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM followed by the service beginning at 1:00 PM at the Calvary Baptist Church, Mikado, Michigan. A luncheon will be held at the conclusion of the service. The service will be shown live on the Calvary Baptist Church-Mikado, MI Facebook page. Interment will take place at Great Lakes National Cemetery, Holly, Michigan at a date to be scheduled. Memorial contributions may be made to the www.gideonsinternational.org.
