Julia ‘Judy’ Marks
Julia “Judy” A. Marks, 87, went home to her heavenly Father on Sept. 8, 2019.
Judy was born June 4, 1932, to Harry and Jeanette Riegel.
Judy is survived by her loving husband, Fred E. Marks; daughter, Susan Carlson; and grandson, Paul Carlson.
Judy and Fred enjoyed spending their time together traveling, fishing and doing a variety of community service projects wherever they were. Judy was a member of The Eastern Star and Ladies Auxiliary. She belonged to a group of winter Texans that supported and worked in an orphanage in Mexico.
Judy was always involved in her church. She shared her talents of music and theater over the years at church and thoroughout the communities in which she lived. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Everyone was welcomed to partake of goodies and have a cup of coffee at her kitchen table. She was a ray of sunshine and cared deeply for those around her.
