Judith Laverne Thomas
January 15, 2013
Judith Laverne Thomas was born Sept. 16, 1940, to Fritz E. Carlson and Winifred I. Carlson.
Heaven welcomed her on Dec. 18, 2012. She was our mother, mother-in law, sister, daughter, aunt, Grandma Judy, Great Grandma Judy and dear friend to so many.
The best baker in town! She shared her love for us all with cookies, pies, creampuffs and truly edible fruit cake!
She found joy in beachcombing for agates, fishing with anyone who would go with her, baking with her grandkids and, in retirement, spending time with her four-legged best buddy Buster.
Thank you, Mom, you live deep in our hearts.
