The Adams County Record Obituary Judy Moritz On April 12th 2012, Our beloved Mother, Grandmother, Sister and friend was called home to be with our Lord Jesus Christ. Her faith was strong and true, and the Lord welcomed her, to spend the rest of eternity with Him, her family and friends. Judith was born on July 2nd, 1942 In Pendelton, Oregon. She was .laid to rest next to her Husband, Norval Moritz on Saturday morning, May 5th, 2012. Many family and friends were at her side as her life was remembered. Jim and Glenna welcomed Judy into this world on July 2nd, 1942, to share a wonderful lifetime with her brother, Jim Campbell. "Ihey spent their childhood in White Swan, Washington, riding horses as far as 30 miles away each day with her big brother Jim. They loved the time they spent together until as Jim says, He found girls... Judy's dad was soon called out of the country to set up a sawmill in Chile. Judy often talked about the time she spent there, and how it was so different from her home--rough and rugged, no power, radio and the nearest store was a plane flight away It-was a time in her youth she spoke of and beamed. She loved the Hitchcock family whom her father worked for. She is pictured with the Hitchcocks at a formal dinner, and the smile on her face speaks volumes for this short period of her life. She loved her parents and her big brother Jim. Jim says his little sister was a bit of a handful and very strong minded. If she wanted it, she went for it! Just like the day Judy decided to jump from a horse onto a speeding train. She said it looked so easy in the movies, but in reality her words were, "It sucked. About pulled my arms out of my sockets: Judy moved to Council in the early sixties with her twin boys Derek and Dwayne. She married Pat Wednesday, May 9, 2012 July 2, 1942 - May 5, 2012 Goodman, and later added two more children to' her growing family, Darren and Denise. But as things often do, their relationship did not last through the trying times of the sixties. She met and married the man of her dreams on July 15th, 1967: Mr. Norval K Moritz. They had a little girl in July 1968 whom they named Karyn Rae, and their family was complete. She loved her kids unconditionally, and raised them with the best of her ability. Without saying, she was a good morn-not too hard, not so soft. q-hey spent many weekends camping and fishing as a family. She loved the outdoors, may it be on the banks of a stream or in her own yard. J u d y volunteered many years with the Council Elementary School from 1978 to 1986. She loved working with the kids as the librarian, and she donated her time and supplies to the kids of Council. This was a highlight of her life. She so enjoyed her time working at the school, and the school was proud to have her. Her position at the school soon became a paying position, but Judy had already proved that she was there for the kids, and the pay was just an added bonus. Judy was recognized as the Council Woman of the Year, and theGovernor's Women Volunteer of the Year for her devotion to her community for 48 years. Judy struggled throughout her life with her health. She was diagnosed with MS, and was told she would spend the rest of her life in a wheelchair. But with her determination and strength in the Lord, she word prevail Over this crippling disease. She would not allow her family to baby her, nor would she tolerate it. It took her over a year to learn to walk again, one painful step at a time. And once she could make it to the Post office she knew she was well on her way. This was only one short struggle for Judy. The Lord gave her many, and she met them head on, never quitting. Judy was so determined to see her grandson Avery born, that she put off the needs of her shell to see just that happen. Two days after her grandson was born she lost her leg to diabetes. Yes, there were many tears from her family, but Judy also found the humor, saying, "I have learned to walk twice' before; I am pretty sure I can do it again: She had Page 3 her daughter, Karyn, write on her bad leg a note to the surgeon, "If found, please return to owner? The )okes about a "one shoe store" went on and on'." "If I buy one, do I get it for half price?" Judy faced many "downs" in her lifetime, q-he loss of two children, her loving husband, Norval, and so so many issues with her health, but she never dwelt on any of these situations. She said, "They were given to ane by my Lord, only to make me stronger. And I have become stronger through Him and my faith in our Lord? Judy is survived by her two boys, Dwayne and Derek; her daughter, Karyn; her brother, Jim Campbell; her grandkids Arlene, Marcus, Meagan, Danniel, Morgan, Myriah, Lee, Katie, Maggie, Patrick and Danylle; and seven great-grandkids. We would like to thank Nina Trainor for her wonderful words at our mother's service. It was easy to tell they came from her heart for a close friend whom she knew and loved for many years.
