Judy Howard

June 28, 1955 ‒ March 08, 2016

Mount Gilead, Ohio

Judy May Howard, age 60, of Cardington passed away on Tuesday March 8, 2016 at Marion General Hospital surrounded by her loving family.

Judy was born on Tuesday June 28, 1955 in Mount Gilead to Paul E. and Betty L. (Winkler) March.

Judy worked many years for Bob Evans Restaurant as a Service Manager until her retirement.

She married Richard Dwight Howard.  Together they enjoyed 29 years of marriage and raised 4 wonderful children before he went on to prepare the heavenly home in 2011.

Judy was a founding member of the Mount Gilead AMVETS post 87 as well as a member of the VFW.  She enjoyed playing cards, especially poker.  In her spare time she wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to go camping with her family.  She was known for her culinary skills and everyone looked forward to the meals that Judy prepared.

Judy also enjoyed sewing and collecting rare coins but above all her most treasured collection is all the memories made and time spent with her family and grandchildren.  She cherished time spent at family outings and watching her grandchildren play sports.

Judy will be dearly missed by her mother Betty Winkler; sons Jason and Rodney Seitz; daughters Leslie (Bill) Baldwin and Lori (Stan) Stoney; grandchildren Kimberlyn, Lexie, Lacie, Brady, CJ, Jacob, Joey, and Aiden; sister Shanna (Mike) Rhinebolt; her significant other Bill White, and her two dogs Maggie May and Whiskey.

She was met at Heaven’s gates by her father Paul March, husband Richard Howard, and brother John March.

In lieu of flowers, Judy’s family requests donations to assist in her final expenses.

The Howard family will greet friends from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. on Monday, March 14, 2016, at the Snyder Funeral Home Craven Chapel, 67 N. Main St., Mount Gilead.
