BOARDMAN - Julia “Judy” Savage Deibel passed away on March 17. She leaves behind four daughters Jayne (Otto) Susec, Jennifer Miller, Jean (Gregory) Miller-Smith and Julie (Mark) Lenyk and three Grandchildren; Miranda Susec, Alexa Susec and Bohdan Lenyk. She also leaves her beloved fur baby, Bella, who will remain with her daughter and be continuously showered with love and affection.
Judy also leaves behind sisters Anne (Roger) Nock, Madeline Savage, and brothers James, Patrick, and Michael Savage, as well as many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents Margaret and James Savage, sisters Patricia Liscic, Sue Vitale, Mary Savage, Jayne Savage, and brothers Jerry, Denny, and Tommy Savage.
Judy was beautiful inside and out, generous, caring and fun. She had an enduring love for animals and thought of her children’s fur babies as Grand Dogs. Judy had a heart of gold, an infectious laugh, and a great sense of humor. She was fiercely protective of her children, intelligent, giving, and creative. She was uniquely talented in interior decorating, recognizing, and refinishing antique furniture, a collector of art and created gorgeous gardens. In 1991, after being a homemaker for many years, she went on to earn her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Youngstown State University.
Judy loved her daughters, grandchildren, grand fur babies, Bella, her siblings, nieces, nephews and countless friends with all her heart. She left all of us so much to cherish. She will be missed by many and undoubtedly watching over all of us with a beautiful and protective spirit, from Heaven.
A private memorial is being held in April.
