She was predeceased by her parents Joyce and Frank Troughton.
Born in Winnipeg, MB in 1951, to Frank and Joyce Troughton, Judy was the youngest of two children. Here, Judy graduated high school, worked at the Legion and in 1969, she met the love of her life Gary Hudey. They were married September 8th, 1973 and decided to move to Winnipeg to start the next chapter in their lives.
In July of 1981, Judy and Gary welcomed their first born son, Ryan Raymond. Then, in July of 1986 they were blessed with their second son Trevor Aaron. Judy, Gary and the boys resided in Winnipeg, where Judy worked at the Taxation Centre and for Canada Post. Judy, loved children and took great pleasure in her volunteer work as the President of Maples Community Centre, with Sport Manitoba (during the 1999 Pan Am games) and with the Seven Oaks Optimist Club.
Their 46 year marriage was filled with love, fond memories and travel. Judy was a wonderful and loving wife and mother. She went above and beyond to take care of the needs of her family. One of her greatest joys was when she found out that she was going to be a grandmother (a.k.a Baba) and she loved her grandchildren dearly.
She will be remembered for her kind warm-hearted spirit, her infectious smile and great sense of humour. Though faced with many medical challenges, Judy battled every obstacle with warrior-strength and an optimistic outlook. She had an immense impact on the lives of all who knew her.
The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the staff of the 5th floor at Deer Lodge Centre. Their compassion and support throughout the last six and a half years is truly appreciated and will never be forgotten.
As per her wishes, no formal service will be held. Judy will be buried in a family plot at St. John’s Cemetery.
Though we miss you dearly, you are now free. Rest easy Jude! Till we meet again…...
