April 12, 1948 – December 10, 2009
It is with great sadness and very heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Judy Jean Binder on Dec 10, 2009. No words can describe the loss our family and friends feel. She was a very courageous woman who suffered quietly as she dealt with chronic pain.
Judy was a very special person who touched the hearts and lives of so many people. She welcomed all that came to her door, and made her home their home. She was a second Mom to many. We have lost the most amazing mother, wife, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend one could have asked for. During these difficult times, we take comfort in knowing how many lives Judy has touched. She was the one person anyone could count on. She was our rock. Her memories will live on in all of us, and thanks to her love of photos we can look back on every moment and cherish them through her eyes.
Left behind to deeply mourn the loss of Judy are: her best friend and loving husband of forty-three years John, her children, Russell (his wife Karin and children Erika and Dean), Cameron, Sherilyn Meyer (her husband Corey and children Jeremy and Jake), Her sisters Carol Crossiant (Phil Smith) Kathy (Tom Lesko), sister-in-law Marlene (Roger Hehr), brother-in-Law Henry Binder. Also left to mourn are her many nieces and nephews and their children. In the last few years of her life many of her dear friends were there for Judy: Megan Hauck, Melodie Spielman, Sharon Graham, Chris Pearson, Barb Sutton, Shona Hoffman, Sandra Moran, Verna Raab, Reed Lesko and many others. Our family is so grateful for their dedication and friendship.
