Though, Mac, her husband of 62 years, left this world in 2011, he was still her forever love. While raising their 5 children, she had no idea the family would grow to include 10 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren and 1 great, great grandchild. She loved to say she didn’t have a family rather, she had a “tribe”.
There was never a hurdle placed in front of her that she didn’t conquer and she was well able to accomplish anything she set her hand to - she could roof a house and wear heels and pearls with equal aplomb.
Her immutable faith in Christ was the bedrock of her life and like and iceberg, her faith was visible in the work of her hands and heard in the wisdom of her words but the largest part was unseen. The hours of earnest prayer for her family and others’ needs cannot now be fully comprehended – many will be astonished one day at the breadth and volume of her prayer life. Her greatest accomplishment is the legacy of faith she created.
Her favorite Bible verse was Genesis 1:1 through Revelation 22:21. She was a tremendous Bible scholar and truly found THE scarlet thread woven from the beginning to the end of scripture.
Judy was preceded in death by her husband, Mac and their son, Thomas and is survived by her children – Patricia Milton (Wayne), Erik McClure (Jo Ann), Mark McClure, Christina McClure- Pennington (Mark) and the rest of her magnificent ”tribe”.
Services will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday, December 6th at Lakeview Chapel at Schrader, Aragon and Jacoby Funeral Home.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Judy’s memory can be sent to Wounded Warrior Project, PO Box 758517 Topeka, Kansas 66675 or at woundedwarriorproject.org.
