Judi lived in western Kansas growing up and graduated from High School in Dodge City where she started a career in a construction office and later moved to Kinsley to assist an attorney for many years.  After Kinsley, she ran a restaurant in Ellis, KS before moving to the Kansas City area where she was known for her Thursday special of Fried Chicken.  When she decided to retire, she moved to Arizona to enjoy the heat.  She loved to cook, bake and the family really enjoyed her handmade rolls around the holidays.  Most of all she looked forward to time with her family and friends whenever possible. 

Judi was a wonderful mother, a beloved sister, aunt, and grandmother. She was kind, caring, patient, and loving. She had a great sense of humor and would always make you laugh. She loved music and would always sing along and dance if she could. She enjoyed reading books as well. She had an amazing soul and her love will always shine on through the people she loved.

    Over 41 years ago I met Judi at a Myers’ gathering at Meade, Kansas. She is one of many of my husband’s first cousins. Judi was like family to me right away. I’ve always been grateful to all of her relatives for welcoming me with open arms. Judi went straight to Jesus’ open arms. She will always be remembered as a warm and wonderful lady.
