It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a dear wife, mother, grandmother and great- grandmother on April 13, 2005 at the Chilliwack General Hospital.
“Judy” had a lonely childhood but a wonderful adult lide when she married her long time sweetheart and soul mate, John Blackie Hampton on December 13, 1952 in Streatham, London, England. She would always call him her “John Anderson my Jo John” as a token of her affection and love for him. Judy found true happiness with married life and settled down to raise five children, Veronica, Wendy, Julie, Glenn and Leslie.
Judy was an avid reader and lover of Classical music and listened to Mozart right up to the time of her passing. She enjoyed crocheting, crafts and was a cat-lover all her life.
She worked as a clerk for John Murray’s Publishing Company, and an usherette in the Dominion Theatre on Tottenham Court Road. While working at the theatre, she set her sights on a polite, young Scottish man and announced to her girlfriend, “There is the man I’m going to marry!”
When they immigrated to Canada in 1956 with their two young daughters, they lived in military bases in Borden, Rockliff and Ottawa, ON, Torbay, NFLD, Greenwood, NS, St. Margaret’s, NB, Bagotville, PQ and finally Winnipeg, MB. Judy found employment in most of these places and was a busy mother, Brownie Leader and member of the St. John’s Ambulance Brigade.
She leaves to mourn her husband of 52 years, John, her five children, her grandchildren, Byron, Hilary, Julie, Kelli, Jon, Roger, David, Derek and Shawn and her great grandchildren, Rylan, Justin, Lauryn and Devon.
Special Thank you to Dr.s’ Fam, Vivian and Corcoran and all the staff of NU3, Fraser Cheam Home Support and Nelmes’ Pharmacy. We sincerely apologize to those we may have forgotten.
No service by request and in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Chilliwack General Hospital Foundation.
