Bumgarner; sons, Todd Garrett Beck and Jason Andrew Beck and wife Annissa Dellinger Beck; sister, Pat Moser; grandchildren, Kevin Michael Wise and wife Leah, Jessica Rae Wise, Jon Tucker, Darren Robert Wise and wife Sara, Adam Paul Beck and Rachel Alexandra Beck; great-grandchildren, Zoey Elle Tucker, Mallie Belle Tucker, Royce Northcott Tucker, Philip Robert Wise and William Michael Wise.

As cousins, we share the grief associated with Judy's passing from this earth. We lift the family in prayer and extend heartfelt condolences. Many of us did not have opportunity to know Judy, but we share common heritage and, therefore, a bond of love found only in families. Patricia, Todd, Jason and the rest of the family: May you feel God's arms wrapped around you during this time.

Judy was one of the kindest people I knew. She left a positive impression (and many times hilarious) on those who were fortunate enough the know her. This world is diminished by her passing.

Sincere condolences to the family.
