Judith Ann Adamic was called home by the Lord on December 4, 2022. She was born on September 7, 1944 in Newton, Kansas, to George and Marjorie Heuback.
Judy attended school in Kansas until she moved to Colorado in 1962. After the passing of her mother, she lived in Security, CO, with her sister Lois and brother-in-law Jim. In 1963, Judy moved to Cañon City, where she met the love of her life, Jimmy, while working at Murphy’s Poor Boy Drive-In. Jimmy and Judy were married June 6, 1964, and soon after were blessed with daughters Lisa and Marjorie. Judy worked at Murphy’s Poor Boy Drive-In, Safeway, and Berta Brothers Trucking. Her most rewarding jobs were owning her own nail technician business, Judy’s Class Act, and keeping the books for her and Jimmy’s business, Adamic Construction. Judy lost the love of her life, Jimmy, on February 12, 2018.
Judy was a dedicated and loving grandmother. Kacey, Brandi and JW brought her joy beyond measure. She had fond memories of taking the grandkids for a Friday night sleepover, going on fishing adventures, and helping Brandi and Kacey with their cake decorating and ceramics 4-H projects. She was their biggest fan, and could often be found cheering them on at various volleyball, basketball, tennis, football, and wrestling matches. Her love for them was immeasurable.
Judy passed her time playing scrabble with her friend Davelan Miller, drawing, and painting. She loved playing cards and marbles with her beloved ‘heifers,’ and cherished the time spent with her knitting ladies. She enjoyed the company of her loyal dog Oscar and wild kitty Callie.
Judy is survived by her daughters: Lisa (Doyle) Ruona and Marge (Dave) Meisner; grandchildren: Kacey Ruona (Jack Roberts), Brandi Ruona and JW Ruona; sisters: Kathy (Jim) Harrison, Vicki (Mike) Edwards; sister-in-laws: Del Kendall, Colleen Heuback and MaryLou Heuback; nephew Jack Kendall, who lived with and helped Judy the past few years. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews in Colorado, Kansas, Illinois, Missouri, Montana, Texas, Arkansas and New Mexico. Judy was blessed to have many good friends in her life, the closest to her at the time of her passing being Dennis and Davelan Miller.
Judy is preceded in death by her beloved husband Jim Adamic; sister Lois (Jim) Brewster; brothers: Jack Heuback and Robert Heuback; parents: George and Margorie Heuback; in-laws: John and Josephine Adamic; and nephew John Kendall.
A celebration of life will be held in March or April 2023, when her grandson returns from a deployment overseas.
