Judith “Judy” James was born May 9, 1940 to Thelma (Cooper) and Louis VanDenKerckhoven of Bethel, ME. She married Donald Richard James on September 2, 1960, who preceded her in death on March 4, 1986. She is also preceded in death by a great-granddaughter, Juniper Leigh Bledsoe.

Judy is survived by her four daughters, Cathy Bledsoe (Rodney) of Peculiar, MO; Dawn Brooks (Earl) of Panama City Beach, FL; Peggy Lewis (Jim) of Meriden, KS; and Alisha James of Topeka, KS; 11 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren; as well as, her sister, Nancy Bourgon (Henry) of ME; and her brother-in-law, Jerry James (Rose Marie) of OK.

Judy was a woman of strong Christian faith who enjoyed giving of her time and resources. She loved to knit and sew for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and received several acclamations for her volunteer work tutoring kindergartners in reading.

Judy had a green thumb and enjoyed gardening. She grew a large variety of beautiful African violets which she loved to display around her home. Her most treasured times were those spent with her grandchildren playing games and swimming, and later sitting and listening to the escapades and achievements of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Judy will be laid to rest next to her husband in New Home Cemetery, Nash, Oklahoma.

Laughing with Jesus!!! Judy loved the Lord and her family so much and laughed so easily when she was well. It was always a joy when we had the opportunity to be with her and her family. "Uncle Jerry and Aunt Rose-Marie."
