Judy Weber, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, sister, cousin and friend, passed away peacefully into the eternities, surrounded by loved ones on both sides of the veil, there to be reunited with family members and generations of ancestors, all of whom she eagerly looked forward to meeting. After a valiant fight, pancreatic cancer took her from us on July 28, 2023.
Born Judith Ann Parker in the Cottonwood Maternity Hospital in Murray, Utah on November 5, 1939, she was the first born child of her parents, Charles Howard Parker and Lena (Billie) Morris Parker Pearson. She had one brother from that marriage, Howard Brent (Parker) Pearson
Her early childhood was spent in Murray where she attended Arlington Elementary School. She enjoyed many childhood friendships, as well as her early teachers, Mrs. Edna Cook, Miss Virginia Sutton, Miss Belva Doran, and Mrs. Marva Lindsey. At the tender age of seven years her world was shattered by the divorce of her parents.
Her mother remarried shortly thereafter, and the family moved to Palo Alto, California. She completed her education in California, graduating from Palo Alto High School in 1957.
In her senior year of high school she met the love of her life, Gerry Weber, who was a freshman at Stanford University. Judy attended BYU in the fall of 1957, and Gerry, not wishing to risk losing her by being separated by distance and different schools, transferred to BYU to continue their courtship. They were subsequently married and sealed for time and all eternity in the Los Angeles Temple on September 6, 1958 by Temple President Benjamin L. Bowring.
Judy and Gerry were blessed with four wonderful children, Scott (Stephanie), Mark (Kristi), Sharilyn Grooms (Gavin), and Chalene Williams (Kevin). She was deeply devoted to her family, as marriage and motherhood were always her greatest aspirations. Her unconditional love for each of them sustained them throughout their lives. They could depend on her to stand by them under any and all circumstances. She demonstrated great love and acceptance of each of her children’s spouses and treated them with the same love and affection as her own children. Her grandchildren meant everything in the world to her, and then came the “great” ones that she also adored.
She had a strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and had great faith in the power of priesthood blessings. Those blessings were of great comfort to her as she approached the end of her life.
She was a devoted disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ and served valiantly in His Church throughout her life, beginning as the Junior Sunday School piano player at age 12. She gladly served in numerous ward and stake callings, mainly in music and the arts. She was regularly called upon to organize stake musical events, Relief Society fashion shows, luncheons and programs. She served in Presidencies and leadership positions in Relief Society, Primary and Young Women’s, as well as two Stake missions with her husband, Gerry.
