Judith Louise Weber died Oct. 2, after a long battle with heart and lung problems. Known to her family and friends as Judy, her quick wit and humor were second to none. Her deep love for them was unconditional and she always knew what to say at the right time. She absolutely adored her grandkids and was an amazing grandma, mom, sister, wife and friend.
Judy grew up as an Air Force brat all across the United States and parts of Europe in the 1950s and ’60s. She was able to attend Berlin High School while her father was stationed at Tempelhof Air Force Base. There as a senior, she met and fell in love with her soon to be husband Tom Weber. She and Tom were married two years after she graduated from high school and moved to South Dakota. After spending several years in the Midwest, the couple bought a new home on the Key Peninsula where they raised their three children.
For the next 20 years they lived and worked between Key Peninsula and Gig Harbor. Judy worked several years at Ace Hardware and several more years at Peninsula Light Company. Both she and Tom longed to spend their later years in a warmer climate, and moved to Las Vegas in 1999. Judy worked at Bank of America before retiring in 2007.
After her husband Tom passed away in 2007, Judy spent many years reconnecting with friends and former Berlin Brats. She traveled throughout the southwest and California frequently, but always spent the most time talking with friends she met while living on the Key Peninsula.
Judy was laid to rest with her husband at the Southwest Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Boulder City, Nevada.
She is survived by her daughter Shelly of Las Vegas; her son Mike and his wife Tina; their children Crystal, Coral and Andrew of Florida; her daughter Amy and her son Chason; and her brother Gene and his wife Lois of California.
