Judy grew up in St. James on Rutland Street in her mother's childhood home. The West family were local St. James grocery store owners. In her younger years Judy would be seen helping in the store and running errands for her parents.
She was an avid five pin bowler. She enjoyed socializing with her many friends and was a member of the St. James Legion where she enjoyed participating in their weekly meat draws.
Judy was a stay home mom for several years but returned to work once the kids were older. She worked for many years at Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries in various roles.

We will miss you terribly. Love you always.

  • My wife Janet and myself spent a few enjoyable years bowling in the Eatons Retirees League out of the St. James Alleys. What a competitive couple. Myself with Charles and Janet with Judy. Might they both enjoy being on the same team. Fire them hard Charles we like the Thunder from the Heavens. Keep them straight Judy. As the wooden pins take their tumble we bowlers take our tumble also. Rest Easy to the both of YOU....Bill Dubas - Posted by: Bill Dubas (friend) on: Jan 06, 2022

  • Deepest condolences to Judy’s family. I worked with Judy and Charles for many years. Judy and I worked closely and she was a pleasure to work with. I know this is a huge loss for her family and I’m so very sorry. - Posted by: Grace Forbister (Co-worker and friend) on: Jan 04, 2022

  • We were neighbours 2 doors up at 365 Rutland. to the West family until 1950 or so. I remember them so well. My Dad was very good friends with theirs and especially with his brother, who passed away very young while fixing a car or truck. I am 4 years older than Judy was but I babysat, played yard games with them,not so much with Warren as he was a little blonde baby running around. We all lost touch when we moved to the Air Force PMG's on Mooregate st. I remember Judy. She always helped her mom so much and was a real organizer. I found this notice to be quite moving for me, it brought back so many good memories. I am sorry for your loss. b - Posted by: Barbara Smith {Rawsthorne] (one time neighbour) on: Jan 04, 2022
