Colleen B. Judge

Friday, February 11, 1927Sunday, November 24, 2019

Colleen B. Judge, age 92, passed away on Sunday morning, November 24 2019, at her home in West Wyoming, surrounded by her loving family.

Born on February 11, 1927, in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, Colleen was the daughter of the late Paul and LaVerne (Eyler) Haworth.

Colleen will be remembered as an extraordinarily loving and compassionate Mom. There was no better role model in dealing with life's adversities with simple directness, unconditional kindness and humor. Colleen loved reading, writing poetry and sports. Colleen is that one person to make you smile and feel better about yourself. Our loss is heaven's gain. God is smiling. Thanks Mom!

Condolences

Maureen, So sorry to hear of your mothers recent passing. My thoughts & prayers are with you all. Judy Gomba
We are so sorry for your loss! Our heart and prayers go out to you and your family during this time of sorrow. Love, Gail and Danny
Our sincere sympathy in the loss of your Mom. Gary & Susan McCutcheon
So sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers to the entire Judge family. Charlie Gelso
Maureen, you know I thought the world of your mom and wanted to reflect on how much she touched my life and others. Your mom always rolled out the purple carpet for the droves of people who would visit OR stay for days. Her story is remarkable and most have no idea how she handled so much and so calmly. Her gusto for life and for a good laugh lives on in all of her children. It's easy to see what tree the Judge apples fell from. Her impeccable style and grace will always inspire. From the purple dining room to her calm and cool way, she made the world a better place. May she rest in peace. Sharyl Hostrander

Dear Tom,

How can I ever thank you enough for leading us through our recent experience!

I have received so many compliments on the obituary for Mike; the Funeral Mass; and the Military Ceremony at the Cemetery. Your input made all of this possible!
