WRIGHT, Judy Ann (Jobe) 75, of Springfield, Ohio (Clark County) closed her eyes in peaceful, golden slumber and crossed over on September 19, 2011, while at The Glaesner Health Center at Oakwood Village.
She was born January 12, 1936, the only daughter of Archie and Pearl "Hank" Jobe.
She was employed at William Bailey Co. and Wright Patterson Air Force Base where she received many awards for her excellent work.
In life, she had a passion for studying fine detail, which led her to become an artist, a poet and a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother.
Judy used paints as well as crochet, intricate cross-stitch patterns and numerous other craft skills.
She was a skilled pianist who would play whenever family gathered at her house, resulting in uproarious singing and dancing. She was a fantastic cook who always seemed to have enough to go around, no matter who showed up for dinner, and they usually did. Nobody ever left her house feeling hungry or unloved.
When the time came, she was a caregiver to her own father and mother.
In later years, she enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, Blaze and Nicklas and did them tribute by painting their nursery walls The Four Seasons of The Hundred Acre Wood. As they grew, she reveled in their artistry and music.
Survivors include her loving husband of fifty-five years Robert L. whom she married on May 4, 1956; son, Scott Wright, two grandchildren, Dakota Blaze and Nicklas "Bear" Wright, brother, Charles, sisters-in-law, Barbara Jobe, Rita Jobe, Carolyn Leath, and a very special sister-in-law, Grace Tyree, brothers-in-law, William Wright, CA, John Wright, Springfield, Kenneth Wright, New Carlisle, James Wright, Enon, Ohio and many nieces and nephews and extended family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Jack Jobe.
Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m. Thursday in the Conroy Funeral Home; with visitation to begin at 11:00 a.m. Burial will be in Grape Grove Cemetery.
