It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Judith A. Arthurs, which occurred on Tuesday, March 30, 2021, at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Born in Saint John on January 16, 1954, she was a daughter of the late Joseph and Clara (Brace) Gallant.
Judy enjoyed her career as a real estate agent and loved helping people realize their homeownership dreams. She loved reading, boating and gardening. She was very devoted to her family and was a very big part of her grandchildren’s lives. Judy will live forever in all our hearts.
Judy is survived by her loving husband of 52 years, Vernon; her two sons, Vernon Jr (Patricia) and Mike; sisters, Linda (Jerry) and Rose; brothers, David (Brenda), Randy (Tanya) and Leonard (Sandy); grandchildren, Mike, Cody, Ryan, Nicola, Joshua, Julie, Zackary, Annabella; great-grandchildren, Audrea, Jayden, Jackson, Joey; as well as several nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, Judy was predeceased by her sisters, Denise, Holly, Gloria; brothers, Roger and Kenneth.
A wife, a mother, a nanny too,
This is the legacy we have from you.
You taught us love and how to fight,
You gave us strength, you gave us might.
A stronger person would be hard to find,
And in your heart, you were always kind.
You fought for us all in one way or another,
Not just as a wife not just as a mother.
For all of us you gave your best,
Now the time has come for you to rest.
So go in peace, you’ve earned your sleep,
Your love in our hearts, we’ll eternally keep
