Funeral Services for Mrs. Judith L. Gilbert will be held on Friday, November 26th at 3:00 pm. There will be a Visitation on November 26th from 2:00 – 3:00 at Crawford Bowers Funeral Home in Killeen, Texas.

Judith (Judy) Mays Langseth Gilbert (76) passed away on November 20th at her home in Temple, Texas. Judy was born on January 7th, 1945, in Blanco, Texas to John and Mary Mays, and eventually moved to Killeen, Texas with her 3 younger siblings. After graduating from Killeen High School, Judy attended Business College in Austin, where she gained many unique and esteemed skills and long-lasting friends. Married to her then husband, David, for seven years, Judy devoted her life to being an amazing mother to her two beautiful boys, Troy & Mark and her love for them was never-failing. While raising her boys, Judy dedicated 20 years to the Killeen Independent School District serving students in various capacities. She retired from KISD in 2000. Students and faculty remember Judy as being sweet-natured, caring and giving in any situation. Judy met the love of her life, James Scott Gilbert, in 1995 and they were married for 26 years. Judy was known for her kind heart and for having a smile that lit up her whole face. Judy made an impact on everyone who met her because of how special she made them feel. Family meant everything to her and she was happiest when she was surrounded by all of them, laughing or playing a good game of cards back in the day. Judy devoted her life to Christ and she loved attending First Baptist Church in Belton, Texas. Judy will be missed by those who knew her most and loved her sparkling personality. Her grandchildren, especially, will miss calling her “Brannie” and getting the best hugs from her. She is survived by her loving husband, Scott Gilbert, son Mark Langseth (Amanda), Step-daughter Sunny Wren (Pat), Sisters Carol Hoover (Bob), Pamela Toomer (Lew) and James (Jim) Mays (Jennifer), Grandsons Clayton & Landon Langseth, Granddaughters Jasmine & Jade Wren and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and loved ones. She is preceded in death by, her son Troy David, and her parents Mary & John Mays.

Mrs.Gilbert will be laid to rest at the Killeen City Cemetery.

There are so many memories of Judy. My Mom “snookie” called Judy her babydoll when she was little. Mom had such a close relationship with her. I took mom to Texas several years ago because she HAD to see Judy. It was a precious trip.
I remember Judy telling me about meeting Scotty, and her eyes just danced! She was so smitten with him.
I remember during some very dark times how she handled herself with grace.
I remember their trip to see us and our tour of Jack Daniels distillery.
I loved her and so did all of us kids. Like the Sprague boys said, when we came to Texas for visits we had the best fun with our cousins. We grieve for all the family. We miss the twinkle in her eyes. We love you Judy.
Much love, Penny, Steve, Lisa, Janet, and Snookie.

My dear sweet Mama J,
Loving you was so easy to do! You were truly a gift from Heaven and such a joy to my life. I am so lucky to have had a mother-in-law like you, and my boys were beyond blessed to be loved so fiercely by their precious Brannie. ❤️
I will miss hearing you laugh at everything Mark said and seeing your sweet smile light up your face, as you just loved your people SO much. You were truly one of a kind and knowing that you and my dad are laughing together in Heaven now, makes me so happy.
I will Love you forever!

Our precious Judy, My sister in law, was so very special to all of us. Her smile would always light up a room and her eyes would light up whenever that smile came, which was all the time. We had many very special talks that I will never forget. I love you Judy and we will see each other again someday. Please give Wig a huge hug and don’t let him tease you too much like he loves to do. We will miss you terribly but you have made all of our lives so much better just because you were a part of us.

We wish peace , love and strength to the family in this time of need.
