Judith was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma,

civil engineer and the family moved at least seven times before she

honor student, and a member of IOTA Chapter of Chi Omega and
the Orange Jackets.
She graduated from the University of Texas in 1935 as the first
woman with a degree in Civil Engineering. Judith and John had four
children; two daughters, and twins, a boy and girl. They spent twelve
years in Alice, Texas where Judith taught high school math and was
very active in the Methodist Church and several civic organizations.
They moved to College Station, Texas in 1954, as John became
a Professor of Petroleum Engineering at Texas A-M University.
Judith was again very active in her community. She was a member
of the D.A.R., United Methodist Women, the A-M Social Club
and Chi Omega Alumni. She was an avid bridge player, wonderful
seamstress, and loved gardening.
With three surviving children, eight grandchildren and sixteen
great-grandchildren, Judith has been blessed with a long and happy
life. John and Judith had a wonderful sixty-three years together
when John went to the Lord in 1996.
Judith continued to be an
active member in her community
of College Station until 2002
when she went to live with her
daughter in Canyon Lake, Texas.
Judith was much loved and
admired and has always been a
great blessing and inspiration to
her family.

  1. Mary, John and family:

    There are no words to express how very sorry that I was to hear of the loss of your Mom. You were very much in my thoughts and prayers today. I wish that I could have been there to express my sympathy in person.

    God bless you and your family and may his peace be with you.
