Judi has finally been released from the prison of her mortal body. She was welcomed into the arms of many loved ones on the other side early in the morning on the first of April, 2020.
Judith Ann Miller was born to O'dell and Harriet Ann Miller in Memphis, TN, on September 20, 1949, the middle of three daughters. The family moved to Theodore, Alabama, where Judi spent her school years. She was a quiet girl and spent much of her time reading as a child.
Even though her adult life was not idyllic, Judi loved her children and always tried to better their lives. This goal took her family to live all over the south, and also England. In the late nineties, Judi moved to Utah and stayed, except for a short time in Idaho. While living in Mississippi, she and her family met missionaries Clara and Arvid Dodge, and joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Throughout her life, she held a plethora of jobs including singer, oil rig engineer, car salesperson, painter and wallpaperer, etc., and then finally was an RN for over twenty years.
Besides being nomadic, Judi has also always been a Scrabble genius, a poet, and a dedicated friend. She's known for her sense of humor, for saying what's on her mind, and for her acts of service. She prided herself on her artistic eye, and loved her many, many pets. She was an exacter of karma, and a consummate survivor. She loved playing with children, and cherished her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, even those she only knew through pictures.
When a stroke ten years ago took away her nursing opportunities, she went back to school and made even more friends. She worked hard to be able to walk again, but eventually had another stroke that kept her down for good--but she could still beat you at Scrabble.
She is survived by her sister Linda, her children Holly, Julie, Sandy, Lia, Geoff, and Candice; her grandchildren Anna, Bethany, Shelby, Jake, Dawson, Luke, Emma, Betsy, Sam, John, Peter, June, Annie, Maddie, Linda, Clara, Sierra, Olivia, and Katelyn; and great-grandchildren Korbin, Evelyn, Cameron, Kyle, Alexis, Charlie-Ann, and Alyssa.
Memorial services will be held at a later date. You may contact family at email@example.com to be notified.
