Judith Kowaleski

()

From the time she was a kid, Judy was always a hard worker: she started at Koch’s Farm picking tomatoes and beans and riding a Honda 90 with her sister to pack peaches at Andersons. On the ride home her helmet would be full of peaches. Later years found her working a drill press for Sarlo Tool and Die and working in receiving at United Stationary. She loved animals from her youth, especially her horse, Misty. It was easy to tell when she was content; she whistled a happy tune and was always ready with a joke. Of course she did tend to be a little feisty and ornery, but you never had to guess about what Judy might be thinking.

Judy cheered for Mark Martin from turn 4, thirteen rows up at Dover Raceway, sped in her 78 Vette, liked to blow off a little steam on the Rancocas Creek and do-se-doed at the Mt. Holly Moose. She hated housework, but loved doing yard work on her two acres of perfection.

A young Judith McDowell knew a boy named Leonard at Riverside High School. Though there may have been confusion about whether he was serious about asking her out, their union lasted more than 40 years. She was the sister of George McDowell and Mary Eastburn and was aunt to Anna, Robert Jr., Shannon, Kirsten, Travis, Joe and Joann.

Come celebrate 61 easy going years Monday 11:30 a.m. at Monument Cemetery, Beverly. Donations to Samaritan Hospice, 5 Eves Drive, Suite 300, Marlton NJ 08053 will be appreciated. Arrangements by Sweeney Funeral Home, Beverly.

    My heart felt sympathy and prayers go out to Leonard and Judy’s family. Judy was a fun person, always laughing. I will remember the laughs I had when I visited her back in NJ. Rest in Peace, Judy! You will be missed by friends and family.
    God Bless You!

    Leonard,
    We are deeply saddened to hear about Judy. We have fond memories of our times spent together and even though we are separated in distance you will often be in our thoughts. Judy will be missed by many but left us with memories that will always remind us of her love of life. May God grant you peace.
    Love,
    Bob & Linda
