OBITUARY

Judith Louise (Micucci) Cook

March 13, 1945March 21, 2020

Judith “Judy” Louise Micucci Cook, 75, passed away Saturday, March 21st, 2020, surrounded by her loving family after battling an illness for many years. Judy was born on March 13th, 1945 in Portland, Maine to parents Phyllis Manchester Woodbury and Kenneth B. Woodbury. She graduated from South Portland High School in 1963. She married Robert “Bob” Micucci in 1968, and they raised their three sons in South Portland until he lost his battle with cancer. Judy then married Philip Cook, Jr. in 2012, with whom she enjoyed golfing and traveling.

As kids growing up, Judy was the baby of three. Brother Ken always referred to her as “the princess”, which she embraced by dressing up in gowns, tiara and all. Throughout her adult life, Judy was a long-time member of Purpoodock Country Club in Cape Elizabeth, where she not only gained a love for golf, but countless friendships as well. She was known for swinging her club from cheek to cheek (backside, that is), and traveled all over Maine as a member of the Maine State Golf Association’s A league. When she wasn’t golfing, she spent her summers at the family camp on Watchic Lake in Standish. Her athleticism and up-for-anything personality showed as she was always excited to waterski, kneeboard, wakeboard, or tube. Judy was always willing to try anything, and didn’t let fear stop her in any aspect of her life. When she was finally fed up with Maine winters, she purchased a second home in Venice, Florida. She is known by her friends and family as an avid shopper. Her love of always finding the best deals is shown by her jam-packed closets. Being a grandmother was one of Judy’s greatest joys. She spent as much time as she possibly could with her four grandchildren, almost always spoiling them.

Judy is predeceased by her parents and first husband, Robert. She is survived by second husband Philip A. Cook, Jr., sister Barbara W. Hintze and husband, Robert, brother Dr. Kenneth B. Woodbury, Jr. and husband Jason Galvez, Jr., son Kenneth and wife Beth, son Travis and wife Abbie, son Robert, grandchildren Sarah, Enzo, Mia, and Marco, nephews Dan and Mark Coughlin, nephew Scott Woodbury, and niece Pam Richards.

Mia Micucci

My Mimi, Judy Micucci will forever be my biggest idol life. Growing up she was my best friend when no one else was. After hard long days of school she’d pick me up and our adventure would start, getting our nails done, going out to eat, playing golf, or just gong to the store getting a fun craft to do, taking it back to her house and laughing while figuring out how to do it. Once, after a long day of adventuring we drove up to camp to meet the rest of the family for the weekend. We got out of the car and while walking in and messing around my Mimi looked at me and said something i’ll never forget. “Promise me you won’t forget about your good old Mimi as you grow up into a big kid okay?” This sentence will forever be in my head. I will never forget you Mimi. You will ALWAYS be my Mimi and bestfriend. I hope i’m making you laugh and proud. Every accomplishment i make in my life i think of you Mimi. Forever and always.

I remember when my family and I would go up to the camp on the lake when my brother and I were still little in the summer. Our Mimi would always already be there with a welcoming hug and usually a new belt and some crazy socks. One thing my cousin Mia and I loved to do with Mimi was ‘treasure’ hunts. Our Mimi would write little clues on sticky notes and stick them all around the house and yard. My Cousin and I would always run around and frantically search for all the clues and then jump around then run and find our Mimi when we finally found the treasure, even though it was just a stash of monopoly money. Another thing our Mimi would do was tell us ghost stories. She cuddled up with all of us on a beat-up, yellow and blue striped hammock on the porch and tell us one crazy, ‘true’ ghost story. We still don’t know if they were true or not but they all scared us. She always told this one about her, her sister Barbara, and her brother Ken. One day they were all messing around up at the same camp we were at then, there was an old, camp next to ours and one time they decided to go in and explore. When they went into the camp they started hearing weird noises. This continued and once the three were about to leave my Mimi described a spooky wind swirling around all three of them. She told us she didn’t know exactly but she felt like those winds were ghosts. Our Mimi always knew how to entertain us and we’d always have fun.

My Grandmother,

Judy Micucci, I knew her as Mimi. She was always there to care for and love me when I got to see her. My brother, my cousins, and I used to have lots of fun playing certain activities. At her house we used to always play Wii sports and to go out to eat after. From time to time when my family drove up to Standish over the summer,my Mimi and her husband Phil would drop by as well. They would watch us go water skiing, tubing, and play in the water. She had the most fun watching us play wiffleball, she would sometimes play and even though she didn’t fully understand how to play she still brought everyone joy while she was playing. When we would visit her in Florida, she was the happiest in my opinion. She could play her favorite sport golf and maybe go to a golf tournament to watch the greats play. The warm weather and neighborhood she lived in was a perfect fit for her.

For ALL of Judy’s family I have sincere sympathy for your loss of this Wonderful Lady. Growing up, Judy was a constant joy and support to my family. The gifts she shared, laughs she created and strength during trying times is woven into more memories than I can count. The photo you have displayed here is the perfect tribute to Judy’s beauty and sparkle. I can almost hear her giggling a bit. Heaven is a happier place with her arrival. Peace to you all, Connie
