Judy L. Chaney met with her Lord on Friday, Jan. 4, 2013, following a sudden illness on Christmas Day. She was 60 years old.
A family memorial was held at Cocoa Beach, Fla., per her request, and a celebration of life will be planned this summer in the Quad-Cities.
Judy and her sister cared for their 90 year-old mother at their home in Orlando, Fla. Judy would never hesitate about sharing her opinion or giving advice when she felt family or friends could do better, and she loved to celebrate life through the company of others, laughing conversation, catching up with long-distance relationships on the phone, or sitting down with others over spicy food and cold drinks.
Judy was preceded in death by her father, Kyle Chaney. She is survived by her mother, Maryon Chaney; her siblings (and spouses), Terry Rigsby, Patrick Chaney, Martha Reger, (John Reger); a niece, nephews and their spouses and children, Christopher Rigsby, Adriana Rigsby, Kyle Rigsby, Mindy Mathews, (Mark Mathews), Brenden Whitcanack, Payton Mathews and Joshua Chaney.
Condolences or donations to the family can be sent to: Terry Rigsby, 13657 Brigham Young Drive, Orlando, FL 32826.
