OBITUARY

Judith M. Colaw

December 29, 1946March 9, 2020

On March 9, at 1:45am, Judith (Judy) Mary Colaw, of Belton, MO, passed away peacefully at home from Alzheimer’s. She was born on December 29, 1946 in Bridgeport, CT. She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Jackson Ben Colaw, her two daughters, Lisa Colaw-Smith and Julie Colaw-Otto (Karl Otto) and 5 grandchildren, Cody Hart, Nicole Oakes, Tommy Baumgartner, Blake Smith and Julia Smith. Judy married Jack on August 26, 1967, in Kansas City, MO. She was the ultimate wife, mother and grandmother, and “Mom” to numerous children throughout the years as her home was the place everyone was welcome to visit to play, swim, or just hang out. She enjoyed sewing, crocheting, photography, relaxing with her dogs (Cloe and Corky) and attending all of her children’s and grandchildren’s events throughout the years. She will surely be missed by all of her friends and family. In lieu of flowers, please make a tribute donation to the Alzheimer’s Association at alz.org.

What a privilege to care for Judy as her family physician for these many years! She was such a bright and smiling inspiration every time she came to the office, even when she didn't feel well. I am so blessed to have known her! Will forever be grateful for her amazing husband, Jack and her two beautiful daughters, Julie and Lisa and her kids, Julia and Blake. You are all such a loving and close-knit family--a rare treasure in today's world. Praying John 14 over you all. Praise God we have a Savior who conquered death!

Judy was like a 2nd Mom, especially when it came to dance. I pretty much grew up with her around. I know as I became an adult, I didn't see her as much as I should have, as much as I would have liked to have, but when I did, she was always there with a smile. No one was a stranger, and her home was always open. She was so proud of her family!

Too many memories, from dancing classes with our girls to bowling to just plain friendship, to count or recount! Judy will be sorely missed by all who ever crossed her path! Her family will remain in my thoughts and prayers!
