Judy's Dash (her life between 1951 and 2020)
Judy was born August 10th 1951 to Azilee Mathes and Willie Brown. She was raised by her mother and step father Robert Morton alongside her older brother Tyrone(deceased). Judy was a strong student and a good daughter. She made friends easily and was always outgoing and friendly. As she grew older Judy was active in school and also worked in the family BBQ joint; “Big Sister”. After graduating from Withrow High School in 1969 Judy went to U.C School of Nursing and finished in 1971 as a Licensed Practical Nurse. Nursing was more than Judy’s profession it was her calling as she nursed and nurtured everything and everyone she came in contact with.

It was also in 1971 that Judy met and fell in love with the man that would become her ‘one and only’. They created a family together and even accepted Christ as a couple both being baptized on December 6th 1981 and became members of Morning Star Baptist Church. Although Judy and Larry didn’t officially marry until 5 years later, their union was blessed with 5 children between them; LeDon(deceased), Kevin, Kindel,Bredia and Sanita.True to her calling Judy nursed and loved her husband, her children and her home. Naturally gifted with ‘smarts’ she made things work. She sewed clothes, cooked meals from scratch, clipped coupons for everything, found discounts everywhere and believed in DIY projects. She was involved in PTA boards and stressed the importance of education while allowing each of her children to be the best version of themselves.A mother like none other, Judy made sure that each of her children knew they were cherished. She would sing the O’Jays song “Have You Had Your Love Today?” and then wrap you up in her loving arms until you felt how much you were loved.

While working as a nurse for 30 years Judy also obtained her Real Estate license in 1986 and became a successful realtor for the next 25 years. Real Estate allowed Judy to utilize her keen intellect and strong desire to help others by connecting many people with home ownership and properties to generate their own wealth through real estate investments. Real Estate as well as nursing was an outlet for Judy to do what she loved most professionally and personally; help others. Throughout her careers of Real Estate, Nursing and Domestic Engineering, Judy maintained several relationships with people that she laughed with, traveled with, worked with and grew with. She took several trips with her Morning Star church family to Alabama, romantic getaways with her husband to Hawaii and Mexico or excursions to Germany or Las Vegas with friends and family. Although she was always “Larry’s wife” Judy was everyone’s road dog, partner, friend, nurse hotline, cook, confidante and much more. If you called and said Judy let’s….she was at your front door by the time you said go. If you said Judy can you help me with…..she was there by the time you said what.She was just good to everyone but she seemed to have a special spot for elderly folks. As a nurse she spent most of her career caring for the elderly at nursing homes and private duty but she even did as much in a non-professional capacity. She did grocery shopping, transported seniors, cooked meals and assisted them with other personal care needs. For the last 12 years she cared for her aging mother and until she took her last breath continued to give her all for her children, grand- children and her doting husband.

Remaining here to cherish the love that Judy shared is her mother Azilee Mathes, husband: Larry Kenneth Richardson; children: Kevin Richardson, Kindel Richardson, Bredia Richardson and Sanita Richardson, 13 grandchildren, Michael Tucker II, Kindel Jr., Kahlille Eddine (Jamal), Kristofer Richardson, Alexis Richardson, Kish Richardson, Kloie Richardson, Solomon Richardson, Sydney Richardson, Rashad Richardson, Jerell Richardson, Ryan Richardson and Aiden Richardson: 2 great grand children Kai Eddine and Joy Eddine. Siblings: Marvin G. Butts III, Mark D. Brown, Kirk Tibbs, Penni K. Tibbs, Willie Sanders, Andriola Brown, Andora Brown, Elias D. Brown, Abraca Drais, William Drais, Brett Drais, and Ryan Drais. Great aunts Lucille Berry, Lucinda Reed, Lutiea Wilks and Willa Fuller. Her Best friend and travel buddy, Shahzaade Ali. A host of family and friends.
The life of Judy was kindness….her kindness extended to all that she met and nurtured. The life of Judy was adventure…she loved to explore and experience new places and things. The life of Judy was laughter…..embracing the good things, good times, good food and good people she was blessed with.
