BINDER – Judy Jean (nee Croissant)

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.

Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Crowfoot Chapel (82 CROWFOOT CIRCLE N.W.), on Tuesday, December 15, 2009 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Funeral Services will be held at Hope Lutheran Church (3527 Boulton Road N.W.) on Wednesday, December 16, 2009 at 1:00 p.m. Graveside Services to follow at Queen’s Park Cemetery. You may forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation, 2888 Shaganappi Trail N.W., Calgary, AB T3B 6A8, Telephone: (403) 955-8818.

In living memory of Judy Binder, a tree will be planted at Fletcher Park, Airdrie by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Crowfoot Chapel, 82 CROWFOOT CIRCLE N.W. Telephone: (403) 241-0044.

    We have not seen Judy a lot in the last few years, since we don’t live close by, but have cherished her friendship since high school in Medicine Hat. Judy was the Godmother for our daughter, Tamara, and we could not have made a better choice. We know that she will be really missed by all of you in her family and her many good friends. She was always full of life and ideas and so much fun to be around. We are very sorry to hear of her passing. Please accept our very sincere sympathy.

    I was one of the many who thought of Judy as a second mom. Since I was a young child she treated me like a son of her own and I will always cherish the many memories I have of Judy. I know the loving family that the Binder’s are and the inspiration they are to many families. I am truly saddened by Judy’s passing, but I know that she is in a better place now, and no longer in pain.

    There aren’t words enough to express how sorry we are to hear about Judy. She raised three wonderful, caring children and took our daughter into her family with open arms. She was a beautiful lady who made us feel welcome right from the start. We are proud to call all of you family. Love Don and Joyce

    We are very sorry for your loss. Take comfort in knowing that we are thinking about you and your family.

  41. To John, Russ, Cam, and Sherry,

    I feel so fortunate to know the Binder Family. They all live their lives with a determination and some stubbornness. Judy was a great example of this. I spent many hours sitting across the table chatting with Judy, and it was clear to me that family was always her top priority. She was a wonderful woman who has had much pain in her life. Her pain is now gone; I sincerely wish we all go forward with our fondest memories of Judy. I wish I could be there at this time, but please be assured I am sharing your grief from Newfoundland. See you all soon.

    With love and affection,
    Paddy White

    Dear John and family,

    I was so sad to hear of Judy’s passing. I knew she was not well and in a great deal of pain most times, but I also knew through Marlene, she never stopped living life and loving her family.
    I will always remember her spontaneous laughter when she was dating you, John, while Marlene and I were just teenagers. She was always so full of fun.
    Life is not fair at times. I hope John that you continue to see her through the eyes of your children and grandchildren and know that she is always in your heart, You two were the most in love teenagers I can remember. There were many songs written about “Johnny and Judy” and I always thought about you two when I heard them.
    Take care , my thoughts are with all of you.
