Judith 'Judy' Anne Booze

Judith Anne Booze, 77, of Monticello, IN passed away due to complications of cancer since May 2020, at University Hospital, Indianapolis with loved ones by her side.
Judy attended Florence Fay Public school #21 in Indianapolis through 8th grade where she earned the schools Outstanding Citizenship Award. She then attended Arsenal Tech High School, the largest in Indianapolis, through her sophomore year. Her family had enjoyed vacationing at Lake Shafer, later moving to Monon, where they purchased a home on the Big Monon Bay, the summer before her Junior year. She then graduated as a "Railroader" at Monon School in 1962. Moving from a school of 5000 students to a total of 120 at Monon was quite a shock. She and Jeff drove back to Indianapolis many of those early weekends to spend time with their old friends. They both soon acclimated and low and behold she was voted as the Junior Class Homecoming Princess. While there were no girls school sports at that time, she and her then boyfriend were each chosen as the Most Athletic Boy & Girl of the Senior Class. She was always strong in Math, remembering figures & dates, and would later never forget a persons birthday or anniversary.
Judy was a strong Christian. Their parents took them to church nearly every Sunday. Judy was baptized at age 12 in the Englewood Christian Church, Indianapolis. She was very active in the life of the churches she attended and enjoyed serving for the Lutheran Via de Christo weekends and various church committees.
Judy was such a good friend to everyone and never met a stranger. She had a knack for conversation and gave good council. She enjoyed cutting up and had such a great laugh & smile, but was never the center of attention. She was always making the rounds to visit with her friends and talking on the phone.
She had been an avid bowler with her mother through the 70s & 80s, even going to Nationals in Reno, New York, and Las Vegas. She loved going on girls weekends and trips including several cruises, JJ Horse Ranch, Michigan, Virginia, and North Carolina. She had a long time interest in the Amish culture and her final trip this summer was to Shipshewana. She followed college basketball and especially loved Coach Bobby Knight. She was always dedicated to her work and spent many years at RCA, State & Saving Bank as a teller, Office Manager for Hornback-Sickler Bridge Company, and White County Deputy Recorder spanning multiple elected Recorders. She turned into quite the farm hand and developed fun relationships with Charlie the baby calf, a set of twin calves she helped to bottle feed, and many cows and horses on Susie & Marvs farm. Through the years, she provided so much encouragement to lots of her kids including Carrol, Melanie, Kirsten, Jaiden, and Tia and she was the #1 cheerleader for all of the things Macy & Kyle were involved in.
She is survived by her brother, Jeffrey (Paula) Booze of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; neices, Dawn (Paul) Sladinski of Greentown, IN and their Son Cole (Shelby) Booze and their daughter Brynn Booze of Kokomo, IN, Deborah (Ryan) Mathews and their children Avery & Gabriel Mathews of Pleasant Hill, IA, and Christina (Karl) Bohling Lang and their daughter Brianna Bohling Hall of Monticello, IN; close friend, Susan (Marvin) Good and her daughter Melanie (Ken) Green and their children Macy & Kyle Green all of Monticello; daughter of close friends, the late Dave & Patsy Roach, Carrol Roach of Denver, NC.
She was preceded in death by her parents, George C. and Rebecca A. (Witthoft) Booze.
