Judith was born October 19, 1941, in Teresita, MO, daughter of Willis L. and Ella Pauline (Jordan) Lee. Judith's life was surrounded by music; she was a member of New Melle Baptist Church, where she served as a piano player and sang in the church worship team. Judy taught music at Fairmont Elementary School, and she liked to record herself playing hymns on her piano to send to friends and church members. In her younger years, she was a drum majorette in high school. She was a very talented musician and singer and could play every instrument put in her hands. In addition to her musical talents, she formerly worked as the Town Clerk for the City of New Melle, and she enjoyed playing Rummikub and sitting on her front porch.

She is survived by her son, Anthony (Rosemarie) Anderson of North Haven, CT; three daughters, Audrey Lee (Trace) Anderson of Nashville, TN; Amanda Lynn Anderson of North Richland Hills, TX; Amy Melinda (Christian) Luchun of Saint Louis, MO; two sisters, Wilda Walsh of Surprise, AZ and Jean (Tom) Bray of Bullard, TX; five grandchildren, Trevor, Autumn (Chris), Preston, Kane, and Bailey. She was preceded in death by her husband, John M. Anderson; father, Willis L. Lee; mother, Ella Pauline (Jordan) Lee; sister, Ilene Roach.

Judith kept in contact with her friends from school all of her life, but most of all she loved her family, especially her grandchildren. She was very proud of their accomplishments. She will be dearly missed by numerous family and friends.
