Judith Ellen Gaslin Clarke was born May 4, 1949, in Jordan, Mont., to Donald Gaslin and Helen Gaslin Groblebe. She spent her childhood in Billings, Mont.
She married Dave Clarke on Sept, 24, 1966, in New Castle, Colo. Anyone who knew Judy loved her. She touched everyone she met with her sweet, gentle spirit and her genuine caring heart. The love of Christ consistently flowed from her, and she put her touches of beauty on everything.
Most of all, however, she loved her family. She lived for the times everyone was together, and she made each gathering special.
She was a precious mother to four children: Chris, Joseph, who married Susi, Sheleen, wife of Vince Owens, and Laurel, wife of Stan Serafin. Judy was a sweet grandma to Justin, Dianalyn, Jacob and Monica, and a great-grandma to Matalie.
She is survived by: her husband; her children; her grandchildren; her brothers, Frank and Ben; many nieces, nephews and other loving relatives.
She is preceded in death by her parents and a sister, Donna.
A celebration of her life will be held on Sunday July 6, 2014, at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Grand Junction, Colo., at 2 p.m.
