In her 68th year, Judith (Judy) Mae Jones received her angel wings on the evening of December 31, 2019 at home, in a house filled with love. She received them with the same grace, strength and peace with which she lived her life. Judy was a wife, mum, gramsy, daughter, sister, friend, bestie, aunt, neighbour, teacher, Bobbie Jo’s dog mom and a most courageous cancer fighter. She was an unparalleled inspiration, support, and a role model to many. Judy fought for 40 years of living with cancer to live, love and build her life that she cherished. She was a traveller (…an adventurer…), an activity planner, a lover of the outdoors, a reader, a volunteer, a beach babe, a wine sipper, a believer in YOLO (you only live once), and always put her family first in a million interesting, thoughtful and creative ways. Family was the foundation of Judy’s life right from the very beginning on Clement Street in Montreal with her parents and four siblings. In her twenties she added to her foundation when she met Bill, the love of her life. For 37 years they lived an epic love story. Together as one, they were most at peace, be that on a trail, on the water, sitting by a fire, quibbling about Dad shaving, or cozying up in bed. Judy and Bill had two children, Kimberley and James, whom she loved fiercely, and who loved her back with everything they had. Their family of 4 became 6 and then 8 with marriage and grand babies. Judy continued to show us how to live each day especially the hard ones with hope, courage, fun, laughter, determination, consistency, responsibility, and above all, bravery. Our Mom fought to be with us and to make life beautiful.
Judy was adored by her husband, the late Bill Burton. She will live on in the memory and essence of her children Kimberley (Matt) Drinkwater and James (Fern) Burton. Brynley and Maesynn Drinkwater will love their Gramsy to Jupiter and back forever. Judy was the loving daughter of the late Gordon and Regina Jones. She was the cherished sister to Brian (Vilma) Jones, Glenn (Jeanette) Jones, Lynn (David) Jones, Ken (Andrea) Jones and loving sister in law to the late Dick Burton, the late Bob Burton, Jack Burton, the late Julie Grady, Pat (Tom) Cairns, Aggie (George) Dunn, the late Mary Hill, Tom (Dianne) Burton and Michael (Carolyn) Burton. Judy was a lifelong bestie to Debbie (David) Grant. Judy will be missed by many nieces, nephews, extended family and very dear friends.
We are heartbroken and shattered by our loss but just like she chose her wings on her terms, we will choose to honour Mom, her way, by living our best lives. We will do as she did and soak in the “skies of blue, and clouds of white, the bright blessed day, the dark sacred night and we’ll think to ourselves, what a wonderful world. “
Family and friends may visit on Saturday, January 18, 2020 from 12:00-1:30pm at the Wellington County Museum and Archives, Aboyne Hall, 0536 Wellington Road 18, Fergus. A Celebration of Life Service will begin at 1:30pm.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Judy's memory to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation or the new Groves Hospital Campaign, Fergus. Our family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the incredible medical team that supported and cared for Judy over the years, with a very special thanks to Dr. Anderson, Dr. Thompson, Dr. Lund and especially Dr. Chouinard, who fought for Mom for 25 years.

It was my privilege to have shared time with Judy last year in Vancouver. She has been not only an inspiration to me on how to live life, but also how to face the inevitable. Thank you Judy. I am going to raise a glass of Bellini to you (maybe two). RIP🥂 Carol
