Billings Funeral Home and Cremation Services of Elkhart will host a Celebration of Life Service on Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019 at 11:30 am, with visitation beginning at 10:00 am. The family has invited those in attendance to share humorous stories and memories of Judy. Burial will follow the celebration at Olive West Cemetery in Elkhart.
Judy worked many years in the kitchen at Elkhart’s Red Lobster Restaurant, but most will remember her for her sassy and witty demeanor that would lighten up an entire room. She had an amazing sense of humor because, to Judy, to live was to laugh, and she accepted nothing less out of life. She was also strong willed and devout, and considered her children and grandchildren to be her greatest blessings. She loved gardening and spending time with family.
