Lucinda Ruth (Tebbs) JuddJune 27, 1952 ~ September 8, 2017 (age 65)
Our beloved mother, wife, grandmother, and sister, Lucinda Ruth Tebbs Judd, passed peacefully at her home in Gunnison, UT surrounded by her family on September 8, 2017. Lucinda "Cindy" was the youngest daughter of Daniel Asay Tebbs and Nedra Henrie of Panguitch, Utah. She was born on June 27, 1952. Cindy married her sweetheart, Robert Vaughn Judd of Kanab, Utah in the St. George LDS Temple on June 18, 1971 after a brief courtship where he was able to successfully sweep her off her feet.
Cindy was an angel of love and was loved deeply by all who knew her. She had the ability to show loving kindness for all those who were fortunate enough to cross her path. As a mother, her patience and support knew no bounds. As a grandmother, her individualized care, love of games and crafts, and sincere connection with each child made her irreplaceable. As a wife, her dedication, tenderness, and perseverance never ceased.
As a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Cindy served in many roles including her cherished missionary calling to the Philippines and as a Manti Temple worker. Her favorite callings were in the Primary. No matter who the audience was, Cindy would spend time to make each person feel heard and understood. She preached the gospel with passion and was committed to the idea that we are all holding on to some part of the same elephant. Cindy would say, "Preach the gospel at all times, and sometimes use words." Cindy cherished the relationships of everyone she met. She helped love abound in every place she visited.
Cindy was a talented seamstress and had a creative mindset. Her art was functional and very impressive. Wedding dresses, baptism dresses, blessing dresses, ornaments and more adorn all her family’s homes as evidence of her loving talent that she readily shared with everyone. She was an avid learner and continued to educate herself on a wide variety of topics throughout her life. She survived breast cancer more than twice as long as the doctors predicted; a testament to her determined, fighter’s spirit. If Cindy was to leave us with anything, it might be the words from a song she wrote: "Give of yourself and you will live, a life that’s full then you will know love, joy, and happiness will follow. The test is not just how we live, but also comes in how we give."
Cindy is survived by her husband, Robert; her children: Cristy (Brian) Rowley, David (Tiffani) Judd, Jed (Jennifer) Judd, Malynda (Lee) Bjerregaard, Bradley (Alicia) Judd, Andrea (Jonathan) Nuckles, and Samuel (Kaela) Judd; her 26.5 grandchildren; sisters: Veda Hale, Janice (Michael) Gottfredson, and Joyce (Kent) Miller; brothers: Daniel (Karen) Tebbs and V. Louis (Laura) Tebbs, Preceded in death by her parents. She will be deeply missed.
