Judith (Judy) Ann Wolfe (nee Phelps)

November 18, 1952 ~ March 7, 2012

Judith Ann (Judy) Wolfe, age 59, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, March 7, 2012.

Judy was born on November 18, 1952 in Trail BC to Chester and Hazel Phelps. She spent her early childhood years in Deer Park, BC before moving to Erickson, BC with her family in 1965. She attended Renata Elementary, Erickson Elementary and Prince Charles Secondary.

On May 1, 1972 she married Dennis Wolfe. While not having children, Judy had an open and loving heart and love for her pets, especially her little dogs. She was also an avid collector of Cabbage Patch dolls and other items. She was also very artistic and loved painting, sewing, puzzles and especially reading. Unfortunately, she couldn’t enjoy these once her diabetes caused her to loose her eyesight.

Judy was young at heart and enjoyed the company of children and young people. She managed the office at D&J Auto from 1985 to 1998. Following that, she worked with mentally challenged young people until 2005. In later years, life proved very trying for Judy but she didn’t quit. Judy spent her last few years in a wheelchair. She will always be remembered for offering an open hand and her home to those in need. To her friends, her sense of humour always put a smile on their face.

Judy was predeceased by her father Chester in 1987, her sister Brenda Mikado, nieces Krystal Foxall and Elizabeth Wolfe.

She is survived by her loving husband, Dennis, of 40 years; her mother, Hazel Phelps (Bob); brothers Wayne Phelps and Russell Phelps (Cathy); sister-in-law Wendy Sommerfeld; brother-in-law Greg Wolfe (Buddy); along with numerous nieces, nephews and dear friends. Judy will be sadly missed by those who knew and loved her.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, March 24, 2012 at 11:00 am at GF Oliver Funeral Chapel in Creston.

Judy’s remains will be entombed in Bella Columbarium at Forest Lawn Cemetery, Erickson, BC, following the service.
