Although Judy enjoyed outside activities, her family always remained the center of her world. From children to grandchildren to great grandchildren her eyes would light up around her family. She was an amazing loving mother and will be missed terribly.

Judy leaves behind a sister Lynn Hoban, 3 children Peter (Rebecca) Stephanie (Eric) and Matt. 4 grandchildren Jennifer (Jonathan), Adam, Kevin and Kyle and 2 great grandchildren Jack and Ellie.
The family is especially grateful to Sandi Gardiner who lovingly cared for Judy the last 10 years. Sandi’s dedication allowed Judy to remain at home, one of her wishes.
A private family service will be held in the future.

I was so sorry to hear of your loss. My mother was Margaret Buerger. She often talked about the Geis family. I believe they were neighbors in Dayton Ohio growing up. My Mom was born in 1918 and lived in Druids park. She was best friends with the Dyers who lived at the end of the road. My Mom talked about walking to a farm to get milk. I wonder if it was the Geis farm….I am not sure. But I am sure she knew the Geis famiy. My Mom passed in 2010. So sorry for your loss.
