ForeverMissed
It is with great sadness that the family of Judy Waters announce her passing. On May 16, 2020 at 58 years old her brave battle with cancer came to an end. She was an amazing mother to Jen Lindsay (Mark) and an incredible "Gabby" to her four grandchildren Nolan, Nixon, Nova and Navy.  Dear daughter of Jean, predeceased by her father Jerry.   Beloved sister of Cathy (Paul), Nancy (Ray) and Dan (Karen). Proud aunt of Damien (Brandy), Robert (Josee) and Sarah and great aunt to Kiera. She will be forever missed by her extended family and many friends.
Judy's family would like to thank her Oncologist, Dr. Leena Hajra and all of the nurses in the chemotherapy clinic at Markham Stoufville hospital. Our sincere gratitude to her home care nurses, Jolene and Janet who went above and beyond to care for her.
We would also like to thank Stephen and Mark Altwerger, who she worked for for many years, their support and friendship meant a lot to her.
Cremation has taken place and a gathering to celebrate her life will be held at a later date, when circumstances allow. In memory of Judy, donations to Pancreatic Cancer Canada would be appreciated. 
We hope that this site provides an opportunity for everyone who knew Judy to share your expressions of condolence, but also to celebrate and remember her life.  Please feel free to share stories, pictures or anything else that makes you think of the beautiful person that Judy was and the life that she lived.

Its been 4 weeks and my heart is still sore. Missing Judy so much. I'm hoping she has some pull where she is to get us some summer weather. If anyone can do it, she can.  xoxo

Jennifer, I am Teresa Vangerven’s cousin Paul, which would make you and I cousin’s as well. I was the person who read the Poem ‘The Dash’ at your Grandmother’s funeral in Jan. I live in Pennsylvania so you and I did not have an opportunity to see each other very often.

I too, have been doing some reminiscing concerning your Mom, since I received this sorrowful news. When we were younger, your Mother, Father & I spent a lot of time with each other. This is because when I was young I spent a lot of time in Canada. We had many Good Memories & Times with one another. In fact, your Mom was one of the Bridesmaids in my Wedding when I was married in 1977. I will never forget your Dear Mom. Judy was a Sweet & Gentle soul. So I would like to extend to you and your family, my Deepest & Sincere condolences. Perhaps you can find some Comfort & Hope to Help Soothe your Pain within these scriptures – Rom. 15:4 compare Ps. 34:18.

Jen we were reminiscing about your mom today and the fun times we had in years gone by. Judy was such an easy going, soft spoken gal, always ready with a smile...even when times were difficult she could find something to laugh about. Our thoughts are with you Jennifer and your family...with your Gramma Jean and Cathy, Nancy and Danny. May your good memories comfort your saddened hearts.
Teresa and Fred.

WATERS, Judy (Gabby)
January 24, 1962 -
May 16, 2020
After a fearless battle with cancer Judy was taken from us way too soon. She will be on our minds and in our memories forever.

She leaves behind her amazing daughter Jennifer (Mark) and her four grand kiddos that brought her endless joy and happiness: Nolan, Nixon, Nova and Navy Jean. They all called her Gabby, Nolan started it and the name stuck she loved hearing them call her Gab or Gabby. It was like music to her ears.

Judy is pre- deceased by Dad (Jerry). She will also be missed by Mom (Jean), Cathy (Paul), Nancy (Ray), Dan (Karen) and her many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, friends and co -workers.

A extra special thanks to Kathy Cartier for sensing when she was needed.

Thanks to all of the Doctors and nurses that provided the absolute best care during this chapter of Judy's short life.

Judy and I had an on and off relationship for many years.
When it was on it was amazing to be with her whether it was riding on the back of my motorcycle touring along lake Simcoe, cruising down the highway in her Porsche, hair blowing
In the wind, or curled up on the couch together watching her favourite shows, all the Chicago’s,
Grays and New Amsterdam.
She was completely devoted to her daughter and grandkids and her family meant everything to her.
Gone way to soon.
Rest In Peace Judy

I feel lucky to have experienced your sense of humour, quick smile and warm, caring personality. You shared your beautiful home and yard with us and always made me feel welcome. Loved sitting on your porch with a glass of wine or enjoying a bbq on your back deck...or watching racoons walk the fence in my backyard.  You will never be forgotten. Rest in peace Judy

My dear sweet friend I am heartbroken. We worked together for years over the phone and then I had the pleasure of finally meeting you in person. Even after I moved to Arizona we still spent time talking and catching up. A few months ago I sent you the finger puppet your mom made that I kept on my desk and we laughed so much. I will miss our talks, your beautiful kind soul, your laughter and everything about you. My heart goes out to your family and all your friends. Heaven has truly gotten a very very special Angel. I love you Judy ❤️

An amazing aunt.

Shared by Robert Boileau on June 4, 2020
Judy was an amazing aunt and i am going to miss her terribly. I am grateful to have had her in my life. She was always willing to drop what she was doing when we would visit whether it was planned or a surprise. To offer advice or to just talk, to take us for supper at wild wings everytime we visited. Where the joke to order the 1000 wings would almost always come up. She was very trusting, not even i would trust myself to drive a porsche. 

It's such a great loss, a little hole inside that is filled with great memories and lots of laughter. I will never forget Judy  we will always have our memories to remind us how you brightened our lifes. Love you judy.

For ever in our hearts

Shared by Damien Boileau on June 3, 2020
Ever since I can remember when we would go for a visit be it for the day or for a weekend, Judy was always welcoming. Always being a great host. Letting us (me and Robert) watch ren and stimpy when it was probably out of our age range. offering us unlimited sugary drinks, and all the snacks we could want. As I grew older she would always be up for going to wild wing, naked wing or wackey wing for some wings and beers. She was our guide to the south making sure we reached our destination. Maybe not on time or the direct route but always made it where we needed to go.



When me and brandy had our daughter kiera we needed to figure out a full name, we named her Kiera Judith Boileau in honor of her great aunt Judy as one more way to keep Judy in our memories. Ill remember the reaction she had when we told her that, it put tears in my eyes. I am so glad that in February Judy and Jennifer were able to come up north and meet her great niece/second Cousin Kiera. I will tell stories and show pictures letting Kiera know how great of an aunt she was.



we love and miss you Judy, your memories will live long through the stories we tell and pictures we share. You will be in our hearts for ever.
