Obituary of Judith Lee Frary
Judith Lee Frary passed away unexpectedly on July 11, 2022 at the age of 61. She was born January 24, 1961 in Los Angeles, Ca. to Kenneth and Marie Varner and grew up in Long Beach, Ca. She was the youngest of 5 children. She was preceded in death by her parents and oldest sister Kathleen. Judith is survived by her sister Janie, brothers Ken (Debbie )and Tim (Doreen), 2 nieces Jessica and Victoria, 3 nephews Devin, Timothy and Matthew and 4 grandnephews Landon, Donovan, Roman and Baron. Judith moved to Arizona in the mid 90’s to be closer to her parents. She formed many lasting friendships while working in the funeral industry and gave great comfort to the many families she assisted in their time of great need. Judith moved back to California in 2017 to be closer to her remaining family. Here she was able to pursue her love of animals. She loved all animals, especially cats and horses. She fell in love with horses at the age of 5 and they were always a part of her life. Her latest employment in the small town of Keene near Tehachapi included the care and love of 6 horses. She loved playing card games, doing jigsaw puzzles, and was the absolute best at Scrabble. She also loved going “junking” as her mother called it— to garage and estate sales and antique stores collecting many beautiful vintage dishes and quilts. She also had a love of jewelry and could not resist pieces with dragonflies, butterflies or horses. Judith had no children of her own, but had great affection for her nieces and nephews and the children of her many friends. Judith was a wonderful sister and friend. She will be greatly missed by all who were touched by her life. A Memorial Service will be held on August 14, 2022 at 10:00 at Mariposa Gardens, Mesa Az. Donations can be made in her name to
