Judith A. Hunter
November 9, 1947 – December 12, 2018
Lover of all Creatures Great and Small
Judi Hunter (71) crossed the rainbow bridge on December 12, 2018, to be with her beloved daughter and her clowder of kitties. Judi came into this world on a cold but clear November 9, 1947. Preceding her is her beloved daughter, Kathleen Noel and her caring father J. Ray Evans.
Judi is survived by her loving husband, Frank, of forty seven years, her mother Maryanne of Waynesburg (formally of Sunset Beach, NC); her brother Jeffery and his wife Sue. Also surviving are her nephews Jeffery Evans his wife, Lynn, Neil Evans, and David Evans, his wife Carol and daughter Amber. Judi is also survived by two loving grandnieces Mari Rae and Kiera Ann Evans and a grandnephew, John Logan Evans.
Judi graduated from Bethel Park High School in 1965 with honors. She was a four year member of the Bethel Park marching band, Pep band, and orchestra. She was a member of the high school student council and a four year member of the high school varsity rifle team and was involved in school plays. She attended Alderson-Broaddus College where she meant her future husband. She graduated Alderson-Broaddus with a teaching degree in Language Arts.
Judi was a lover of all life from the smallest insect on the pavement to the horses in the field. She enjoyed feeding the birds and deer that would wander into the yard. She adopted kitties that were in need of love and care. If they were injured, she healed them. Besides her beloved daughter, Katie, Judi loved the natural world. In that vein, anyone kind enough who wish to honor Judi and Katie’s memory might make a donation to the Humane Society of Greene County, 182 Jefferson Road, Waynesburg, PA 15370 or to Paw Prints Veterinary Clinic, 1745 Mileground Rd., Morgantown, WV 26505.
When Judi is spotted, and when she and her special friends finally meet, she clings together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon her face and hands again caress the beloved head, and she’ll look once more into the trusting eyes of her pets, so long gone from her life but never absent from her heart.
Then Judi and her clowder of kitties will cross Rainbow Bridge together....

I will always remember Judi's caring nature, creativity, wit, beautiful writing, generosity, and her inspiring devotion to her family, friends, and beloved pets. She nurtured everything and everyone she touched. May she now dance with Katie and her kitties in heaven. She truly is an angel and will forever be missed.

Judi was my only girl cousin and one of my best friends growing up. When I went to Montana, distance separated us, but my memories of riding our imaginary horses down the hill from the parking to the Allegany County Fair and of hours chattering like magpies when we would arrive, usually kind of late at night, to visit Judi and Jeff on an Easter vacation, and many many more will always remain. Judi was bright, imaginative, adventurous. I am glad she's with her beloved Katie, but my heart breaks for Frank and the family. It's not goodbye Judi. It's till we meet again!

We are saddened at the passing of Judi Hunter. As Frank noted in her obituary, Judi was a lover of all creatures great and small, always caring for pets both domestic and wild, feeding the birds and deer that frequented their yard, nurturing the plants that took root there. We will miss her . . .
