Obituary for Judith "Judy" Maurice

Judith Jayne Maurice, 79, of West Peoria passed peacefully to heaven Monday, February 11, 2019 after a brief battle with cancer at Heddington Oaks in West Peoria. She was born October 16, 1939 in Peoria to Walter and Helen Smith Boundy. She married Robert A. Maurice November 4, 1961 in Peoria; he preceded her in death December 14, 2014. Her parents also preceded her in death. She is survived by her sons, Jeff (Jeanette) Maurice, Jim (Tami) Maurice; grandchildren, Jacob Maurice, Rhendy (Chad) Bradshaw, Matthew Flynn; great-grandchildren, Logan, Lynley, Lane and brother, Mark Boundy. Judy was a wonderful mother who always had her families back, loving wife of over 50 years, passionate teacher and trusted friend. She loved Peoria, volunteering as a tour guide for the historical society and at St Anne’s Church. She became best friends with her daughter-in-law, Tami Maurice and they shared countless hours sitting at the kitchen table talking. Judy had recently become a tourist of the world with trips to Germany, Alaska, Las Vegas, Nova Scotia and several local trips with close friends and family. She loved to do stained glass, sewing, baking and sharing stories over a cup of coffee with her friends. We were truly blessed to have such an amazingly smart and strong woman as our mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She will be dearly missed but always in our hearts. Per her wishes cremation has been accorded and no services will be held. In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to TAPS, PAWS or Peoria Historical Society in her name.
