She then moved to Texas in 1968. Judy practiced as a nurse for LeTourneau College, Good Shepherd Hospital and then private duty until her retirement.

Also, left to carry on her legacy are numerous nieces, nephews, friends and other loving family members.

She was preceded in death by her parents, brother Peter Paetkau and baby boy Joel “Jody” Blane Hiebert.

The family wishes to express their heart felt thanks and appreciation to Arabella of Kilgore and Dr. Surya Lanka for their loving and compassionate care of Judy during the final days of her earthly journey.
