Judy first met Chester Weaver on Memorial Day in 1987, and on December 26, of that year the two were married.  Judy also assisted Chet in the operations of F&W Towing and Repair, in Bellville.

Together with Chet, Judy traveled across the nation on their motorcycle.  She loved to garden and can.  Judy was a great cook and loved family gatherings where she was surrounded by her kids and grandkids.

Judy was active in the TRAO (Towing and Recovery Assistance of Ohio), as Boy Scouts White Eagle District council commissioner and camp aide, and was an auxiliary member of the Bellville American Legion Post #535 and AmVets Post #43 Bellville.

She was a former member of the Bellville United Methodist Church.

Judy is survived by her children John (Beth) Watts of Mansfield and Stephen “Steve” (Tina) Watts of Bellville; step children Kathy (Jerry) Layton and Terry Weaver all of Mansfield; grandchildren Dakota, Brittany, and John “Connor” Watts; step grandchildren Ben (Heather) Layton, Bridgett (Mike) Meier, Erica (Jason) Carpenter, Jeremy (Amy) Secrist, David Secrist; 15 step great grandchildren; sister Susan (Keith) Phillips of Butler; brother-in-law Edward Madejczyk of Florida; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.

Along with her parents she was preceded in death by her husband Chester Weaver; siblings Louise (Bob) Evans, Carolyn (Claude) Messenger, Delores Madejczyk, and brother-in-law Wayne (Evadine) Fisher.

The family will receive friends Wednesday, August 26, 2015 from 4 pm-7 pm in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home.  Graveside services will be Thursday, August 27, 2015 at 11:30 am in Bellville Cemetery. Celebrant Jerry Wilson will officiate.
