"She loved taking care of everyone and always was there when her family needed her," her family said. "Her devotion to her family was amazing. Her grandchildren were the lights in her eye and she was so very proud of all of them. To her, they all were angels sent from heaven to bless her life.

"She touched all who knew her with her courage, determination, and her undying love for her family. Some of the happiest moments of her life was spending time with her grandchildren and driving truck with her husband," the family said.

Judy is survived by: her husband of 40 years, Monte Parker, of Mountain Home; daughters Tamra Downen and her husband, Danny, of Mountain Home, and Michelle Morrison and her husband, Travis, of Comanche, Texas; seven grandchildren; her mother and father, W.C. and Donna Stewart of Mountain Home, and two brothers, Ronald Stewart of Mountain Home and Frederick Stewart of Waco, Texas.
