OBITUARY

Judith Lynne Gasper

June 26, 1942February 8, 2021

Judith Lynne Gasper, 78, of Little River, passed away at home on Monday, February 8, 2021. Judith was born in Baltimore, Maryland to the late Everett L. and Pauline V. (Freeland) Wolfe. She was the wife of the late Anthony Nicholas Gasper.

Born and raised in Baltimore, Judy was a 1960 graduate of Western High School. For many years, she worked as Executive Secretary for Hamburgers Clothiers, a prominent retailer in downtown Baltimore. She married Tony in 1974 and settled in Catonsville, Maryland. Judy was a true Baltimorean who loved her Baltimore festivals, theater, crabs, and O’s! She was a regular at Memorial Stadium and never turned down an opportunity to pick some Maryland crabs! She also enjoyed trips to New York City where she celebrated her 60th birthday.

People were attracted to her outgoing and friendly personality, and she made many valuable friendships through the years. She would often host get-togethers where family would look forward to Tony’s meatballs and competitive games of penny poker!

After many vacations to Myrtle Beach, Judy and Tony decided to move south and make Little River, South Carolina their home. This was the perfect location for Judy, a beach lover, and Tony, a golf lover. She loved living in Little River and looked forward to having visitors to share all the things her new hometown had to offer. You were always a welcome guest in the Gasper household. Judy would often spend the afternoon on the beach with a good book, one of her favorite pastimes.

In Myrtle Beach, she continued her career as an administrative assistant for St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church where she enjoyed more than 16 years of dedicated service. She was an active member of the Little River United Methodist church. Her kindness touched many in the community and she will be dearly missed by her family, friends and all who know her.

Surviving are her sister, Sandra Trieschman; stepson, Anthony J. Gasper; stepdaughter, Victoria Stewart (Rick); and two step grandchildren, Mark Stewart and Gina Stewart. She is also survived by her nephews Michael McMahon (Susan) and Douglas McMahon (Cynthia); nieces Jill Chambers (Steven) and Alane Bakalyar (George); and many great nieces and nephews. In addition to her husband, Judith was preceded in death by her sister, Dolores McMahon.

A memorial service with entombment will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, February 23, 2021 at the Columbarium of Little River United Methodist Church. Covid-19 Protocols will be followed.

Judy was one of my very best friends. She was always so sweet, kind, generous with her time and loving. We kept in touch with each other every day. I loved her laughter so much. We could vent with each other through lives ups and downs without judgement. Our friendship was a true blessing. Judy was a great friend of my dad's, Calvin Saunders. She is now with her Heavenly Father and her beloved husband, Tony and she is at peace. I will love her forever and will cherish the wonderful memories we shared.

A life well-lived... Judy's memory will live on in the hearts of everyone whose lives she touched. She was that special kind of friend who selflessly shared of herself -- whether her time, witty conversation, or welcoming smile. Her absence in the community leaves a wide gap, but her graciousness and love will last forever.

Judy was my designated "Fellowship Friend" whenI joined LRUMC in 1997. She and I shared fond memories of Maryland....especially real crabcakes. Judy always had a quick and open smile and I have fond memories of her warmth and care for 20 some odd years. May God bless her richly. Pat Angelini

I have known Judy for more than 12 years and what a beautiful person she was. We were Administrative Assistants and friends for years before she fully retired. . You could always depend on Judy to be there for you and support you however you needed her. She gave out of kindness and love to her friends, her job and her church. I have so many beautiful memories of her friendship and her laughs and caring spirit. Rest in peace sweet Judy and I know you're an angel now welcomed by God with open arms.

Kevin and I are deeply saddened by the passing of Judy. We so enjoyed being her neighbor. Kevin will truly miss telling her jokes and teasing her. She was such a sweet lady

I was shocked to learn of Judy’s passing. She was such a loving, kind person who was the perfect fit for St. Stephen’s. She was so great to work with at the church in the establishment of office support. When my husband passed in the adjacent building to St. Stephens, she was there and was supportive during my time of grief. She was truly God’s helping hand here on earth. Eternal rest, dear, Judy! God has you now!
