Judith Ann “Judy” Griffith passed away May 20, 2019 at the age of 75 after a brief battle with cancer. She was the treasured wife of Robert “Grampy Bob” Griffith of Montgomery City, MO; beloved mother of Rev. Dawn (Robert) Gerard of Wellsville, MO; and Mark (Dixie) Griffith of Salem, MO; cherished Grammy of Reagan Gerard and Reiley Gerard of Wellsville, MO; and much loved fur-mommy of Bella, Lady, Callie, and Fred. She was proceeded in death by her parents John Joseph and Edna Ethel (Patton) Grellner of Kirkwood, MO. Judy and Bob were married on February 3, 1967 in St. Louis, MO and enjoyed 53 years of marriage together before her passing. While married they lived in Sedalia, MO, St. Louis, Mo, and Bridgeton, MO before finally settling down in St. Peters, MO for 41 years. In 2017 they moved to Montgomery City, MO to be closer to those beloved grandbabies. Judy graduated from Kirkwood High School in 1961 and began working for Spaulding Sporting Goods. Then she found her niche and worked as a dental assistant for over 40 years working in the dental offices of Dr. Jeff Dalen, Dr. Norm Freiberger, and Dr. Jim Faber before finally retiring to spend more time with the grandkids and of course with Bob on the motorcycle. Judy was an active member of the St. Charles County Harley Owners Group (HOG), the Ladies of Harley Group (LOH), the Patriot Guard Riders of St. Louis and Mid-Mo (PGR), as well as a season ticket holder and host family member for the River City Rascals minor league baseball team in O’Fallon, MO. She loved spending time at the Rascals games rooting on “her boys,” taking rides and extended trips with the HOG chapter and honoring our veteran’s and first responders at PGR missions. If she wasn’t doing any of these things, she was enjoying her garden, baking, watching the Hallmark Channel on TV, playing games on her phone, or just hanging out with her grandkids. She had also previously been very involved with Job’s Daughters International both as a youth and an adult. A life-long Lutheran (ELCA) Judy became a United Methodist when her daughter became a United Methodist minister and she jumped right in as part of the United Methodist Women’s group, the church choir, as well as a few other women’s Bible study groups both at Wellsville United Methodist-Presbyterian Church, and her previous church, Cornerstone UMC in O’Fallon, MO. She had a true servant’s heart, a strong faith, and she loved the Lord her God. It was this strong faith that kept her going through four separate bouts of cancer, two heart attacks, and various other medical ailments that had plagued her over the years. It was also this faith that allowed her to pass peacefully into the arms of her Lord at the end. But no matter what she had going on, or what she was going through, you would always see a smile on her face. Judy touched many lives over the years and was loved by all. She will be dearly missed by everyone who knew her, but mostly by her family who truly cherished her.
