Judy Ann (Gorneau) Meyers, 61, of Ellington and formerly of East Hartford, peacefully passed away after a courageous battle with breast cancer on Tuesday, July 23, 2019 with her loving family by her side at Manchester Memorial Hospital. Born in Hartford on January 22, 1958, a daughter of the late Fernand J. and Lois E. (McCracken) Gorneau, she had resided in East Hartford for most of her life prior to moving to Ellington four years ago. Judy was a graduate of George J. Penney High School in East Hartford, Class of 1976. She was a coffee connoisseur and worked at area Dunkin Donuts for several years. A talented craftswoman, Judy liked crocheting and would make Christmas Tree Skirts and Afghans along with other items for her family members and friends to enjoy. She liked camping (especially in Vermont), loved gardening and animals and would often volunteer at local animal shelters. Most of all, Judy loved being a grandmother and took great pride caring for her two adored grandchildren. Judy is survived by her two beloved children: daughter, Jamie L. Koprek and her husband, Scott, of Ellington with whom she made her home; son, Adam T. Meyers and his significant other, Luis Cubille, of Lantana, FL; and her two cherished grandchildren, Joseph E. Koprek and Eva G. Koprek both of Ellington. She also leaves her brother, Joseph F. Gorneau and his wife, Diane, of East Harford; her two sisters, Dorothy “Dottie” Anderson of Stafford Springs, Brenda M. Gorneau of East Hartford; many nieces, nephews, cousins, and dear friends.

I was so sorry to hear of your loss. We drove bus together so many years ago and went to a national bus rodeo together. Judy was always so sincere and outgoing. I know she will be missed...

Dear Family of Judy,

It is with a heavy heart to hear of the loss of Judy. She was a beautiful person. I have many fond memories of her through grade school into high school and then after as coworkers at the bus company. We loss touch through the years till we caught up with one another at the local grocery store in Vernon. Her smile and infectious love for her friends, family and animals will forever be carried in my heart. Gone to soon but forever etched in our hearts with fond memories. May you all find peace in those memories!

Judy was definitely one of a kind, we worked together for a few years , we spent many mornings together and we have laughed,cried and had some of the best times at Dunkin. I will never forget all the things she did for me , one of the hardest workers I have ever met. I was not only her boss she became a great friend. Through the years we still chatted and was supposed to grab lunch soon. This definitely hurt my soul, I will forever remember her and how much she loved her family . She showed me how to balance work and family and that nothing was impossible, She will forever be in my heart ❤️

Judy and I worked for many years at the Beebe Bus Company, later it became Laidlaw Bus Company we had many a great time there, she was always so much fun to work with! Great sense of humor, and a wonderful person. Then we lost touch until I saw her at Dunkin Donuts, and intended to get together, which sadly just never happened. Gone too soon!! My sincere condolences to Jamie, Dottie & Family.
