Judie A Boyce

Judith Ann Boyce was born on March 4, 1948, in Columbus, Ohio and was called home to be with our Lord on January 15, 2024, at the age of 75.

Judith, best known as “NaNa”, was a beloved daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, aunt, and great-grandmother and will be deeply missed by her family. She is preceded in death by her parents, Owen R. Boyce and Paula Long Parker as well as her siblings, Gary, William “Billy” and Linda.

She is survived by her brother, James “Jim” Boyce, and her daughters, Ruth “Michelle” Boyce, and Lisa Hubbard (Monte). Judith was also a cherished grandmother to Tenequa (Daveece), Markysha (Earl), Denisha (Eric), and Damani; great-grandchildren, Jasmine, Desiree, Tyson, Arielle, Ashanti, Koby, Earl Jr, and Daveece II were a constant source of joy and pride in her life. Judith also left a host of nieces and nephews all of whom she loved dearly.

After graduating from East High School, Judith entered the workforce. She dedicated 39 years of her life to the Defense Logistics Agency with the U.S. Federal Government. Her commitment and hard work were consistently recognized and rewarded through countless promotions. She was a pioneer for women to succeed in this field, positioning herself at the highest clearance level allowed in her role. Upon retirement in 2008, she decided to move back home after being away for over 20 years, and was eager to reconnect with her siblings, extended family, and friends.

Outside of work, Judith had a variety of hobbies that brought her joy. She spent countless hours on the sideline watching her grandchildren play soccer and she became a passionate fan of Brazil’s soccer team. The Pittsburgh Steelers also held a special place in her heart when it came to the “other” football. Judith enjoyed listening to music of all genres and to know her was to know she loved her some Michael Jackson, Lou Rawls, and Earth Wind and Fire to name a few. She was also an avid reader, especially of Stephen King novels. Judith found solace in working in her yard, enjoying her true crime shows, and catching up on lost time with family and friends. She also was a volunteer for the National Suicide Prevention Center and volunteered time to local animal shelters.

Judith will be remembered for her vibrant personality and ability to make others around her feel loved. She had a great sense of humor and could always bring a smile to the faces of those around her. If you wanted advice, she always gave it to you straight – always honest to a fault. She had a special place in her heart for her cats (Morticia, Chloe, and Milo) and was a devoted dog mom (Ginger) as well. Judith was reliable and authentic, always true to herself and those she cared about. Her intelligence and quick wit made an everlasting impression on everyone she met.

Judith Ann Boyce leaves behind a legacy of fortitude and unwavering devotion. She will be remembered for her compassionate heart and unconditional love. We as a family feel blessed to have been a part of her life and her a part of ours. May her soul rest in peace.
