Judy grew up in Terril and graduated from Lake Center High School in 1957. After graduation she lived in and worked around the Spencer area. She married Terry Cuthbert March 14, 1970. Judy loved to be a wife, mother, and homemaker. She had a warm, caring smile that made everyone feel welcome. Her family and friends always enjoyed her cooking and how she had her house decorated for each season and holiday. She liked to entertain family for birthdays, holidays and special occasions!
After living in the same house in Spencer for over 40 years, Judy and Terry moved to Urbandale, Iowa to be closer to their younger daughter, Wendi.
