Judith Marie “Judy” Weaver, 75, of Bellville passed away Saturday, August 22, 2015 in Ohio Health MedCentral Mansfield Hospital following a brief illness.

The daughter of Frederick and Louise (Kamp) Blum, Judy was graduated from Bellville High School in 1958.

To say that Judy was dedicated and hard working would be an understatement. She was first employed as a waitress for San Dar Smorgasbord, then was a model for the Tappan Stove Company, worked at both Therm-O-Disc and General Industries, sold real-estate for Whatman Realty, and in any spare time also worked as a contracted painter and hung wallpaper.

Judy first met Chester Weaver on Memorial Day in 1987, and on December 26, of that year the two were married. Judy also assisted Chet in the operations of F&W Towing and Repair, in Bellville.

Together with Chet, Judy traveled across the nation on their motorcycle. She loved to garden and can. Judy was a great cook and loved family gatherings where she was surrounded by her kids and grandkids.

Judy was active in the TRAO (Towing and Recovery Assistance of Ohio), as Boy Scouts White Eagle District council commissioner and camp aide, and was an auxiliary member of the Bellville American Legion Post #535 and AmVets Post #43 Bellville.

She was a former member of the Bellville United Methodist Church.

Judy is survived by her children John (Beth) Watts of Mansfield and Stephen “Steve” (Tina) Watts of Bellville; step children Kathy (Jerry) Layton and Terry Weaver all of Mansfield; grandchildren Dakota, Brittany, and John “Connor” Watts; step grandchildren Ben (Heather) Layton, Bridgett (Mike) Meier, Erica (Jason) Carpenter, Jeremy (Amy) Secrist, David Secrist; 15 step great grandchildren; sister Susan (Keith) Phillips of Butler; brother-in-law Edward Madejczyk of Florida; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.
