Judy was born on December 5, 1945 in Springfield, Missouri to Claude Bacon Heel and Anna Margaret Heel and passed away on Thursday, April 28, 2022 in Geismar, Louisiana.
Judy graduated from Woodlawn High School. Shortly thereafter she met the love of her life, David, while she was out one afternoon with her lifelong friend Sherry. They married on June 7, 1965 and went on to be married for 47 years. They moved into a home and started their family while both working at Western Electric. After retiring from Western Electric, they went on to open a successful business that they both took great pride in, Accu-Tech Mold and Die. Judy and David eventually moved into their dream home on Cross Lake, where they made amazing memories with family and friends. Judy was an avid collector of \"Coke\" and \"Elvis\" memorabilia and, arguably, was Elvis\' biggest fan. She was very talented and skilled at embroidery. She loved her cats and her dog, \"Buddy.\" She also loved Christmas.
