Billings- Judith Kay Everett, a former resident of Las Cruces, NM passed away Tuesday January 24th, 2017 at St. Vincent Hospital at the age of 80.
Born in 1936 in Youngstown, Ohio, Judy grew up in a loving family. She met the love of her life, Malcolm (Mac) Harvey Everett in Cleveland, OH. They had three boys, Norman, Jeffrey and Ryan. After moving around, their final destination together was in San Pedro, CA before Mac passed away in 2001. Judy was a homemaker, she loved to take care of her family, always cooking delicious meals even when the boys grew up and started their own families. They always looked forward to her meals, especially her homemade apple pie, mac and cheese, and cookies! Not only could Judy bake, but she loved to knit, sew and create pottery. There was nothing better than one of Judy’s afghans. Judy became very independent until later in life. She eventually moved from California to Ohio and finally to New Mexico to be closer to her sons Jeffrey and Ryan. This was her home for numerous years. After an injury made it more difficult for Judy to be on her own, she decided to move to Billings with her oldest son Norman, where she lived her last days.
Judy is survived by her sons Norman, Jeffrey, and Ryan. Grandchildren, Judy Aragon, Michelle Everett and Henry Everett (Norman’s children) and Daniel and Sarah Everett (Jeffrey’s son and daughter). As well as her great grandchildren Alexis Everett (daughter of Michelle) and Allison Aragon (daughter of Judy Aragon). She is also survived by Gwenn Everett (Jeffrey’s former wife) and Nelly Everett (Norman’s former wife) both of which are very close to the family. In addition, Judy left behind many great friends as well as her beloved dog Mariah.
Judy, you were a wonderful mother, grandmother and friend. Despite anything, we love you and will always remember the memories you have left us with. Good and bad. We know you are looking down from heaven happy, with the love of your life. We look forward to seeing you again one day.
