Obituary for Judith "Judy" Birchfield

Judith "Judy" Birchfield, 66, of West York, IL, died October 27, 2019, in the comfort of her home.

She was born on October 12, 1953, in Decatur, IL; the daughter of John & Shirley (Brown) Strong, both of whom preceded her in death. She married Richard Andrews on May 28, 1972, and he preceded her in death on August 9, 2000. She is also preceded in death by her stepson, Jerry Alan Birchfield; by her brothers, John Strong, Mark Strong, Alan Strong, by her sister, Becky Metz and nephew, Chuck "Chuckie" Strong.

She married Gary Birchfield on September 3, 2009, and he survives. She is also survived by her children, Shannon & Tiffany Andrews; Julie & Chad Lowe; by her step-children Michelle Danielson, Gary Wayne Birchfield, Timothy Birchfield, Jeromy Birchfield; by her grandchildren, Tosha, McKenzie, Chase, William, Ian, Emily, Gabe, Victoria, Curtis, Teya, Kenzie, Brookelyn; by her step-grandchildren, Makayla, Paige, Alex, Austin, Baylee, Dallas; by her great-grandchildren; GraceLynn and Emma Grace; by her brother, Chuck Strong; as well as several nieces and nephews.

Judy grew up in the Jasper county area as a kid. She worked for Hershey for over 25 years. Away from work she could be found taking a nap. She found enjoyment in traveling and lighthouses. What brought her true enjoyment was spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great- grandchildren.

She was a member of the Robinson American Legion #69.

She at times could be remembered as headstrong, stubborn and persistent, but she had a love for her family that will never be forgotten.

It was her wish to be cremated without any public services. The Prust-Hosch Funeral Home in West Union is in charge of arrangements.
