Obituary for Judy Farmer (Garling)

Judy Farmer (Garling)
Judy Kay Farmer (nee Garling), 75, of Kirkwood, MO, died February 6, 2018 at her home. Ms. Farmer was a retired Registered Nurse from Laclede Commons in Webster Groves; 1959 graduate of North Clay Community High School in Louisville (IL); Eastern Illinois University & St. Louis Community College student, and graduate of the University of Missouri-St. Louis with a BSN in Nursing, Magna Cum Laude, Valedictorian of her 1997 graduating class; former Miss Clay County (IL) & a Miss Illinois competitor. She was born May 16, 1942 in Iola, IL; the daughter of the late Gerald (Jerry) Garling and Hope (Barnes) Deister.

She is survived by her sons, Steve Farmer (daughter-in-law Nancy), of Imperial, MO; and Brian Farmer (daughter-in-law Connie), of Highland, IL; sister, Jan (brother-in-law Bill) Lorenz of Lake Forest, IL; grandson Tanner Farmer of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln; granddaughters Mallory (grandson-in-law Mills) Haire of Batesville, MS & Laura (grandson-in-law Cole) Jackson of Clarksdale, MS; granddaughter Ashley Farmer; great granddaughters Ann Evans, Sara Baylor, Elizabeth Stratton (Haire) & Lucy Harris (Jackson);great grandson Crawford Gaines (Jackson); nephew Brant Hindman; aunt Marge Blair of Louisville, IL; cousins Dennis Blair of Effingham, IL; Danny Blair of Springfield, IL; Pam Bailey of Chattanooga, TN; Kathy (Jones) Hargrave of Nashville, TN; feisty step-father Robert (Bob) Deister of Decatur, IL.

She was preceded in death by her dear younger sister, Jill Bohn; beloved Aunt Hilda & Uncle J.C. Blair, Aunt Helen (Jones) Blair & Uncle Oval Blair. Judy loved to knit, making intricate & cozy scarves; admired and supported the Missouri Botanical Gardens & the Art Museum; loved All My Children, then the Young & the Restless (Luke and Laura, anyone?), and finally the Bold & the Beautiful. She was a fierce bridge player, a great cook, avid reader & did not suffer fools gladly, or quietly. Had a great singing voice & taught a blind girl to play the piano. Was a dedicated and persnickety nurse, which her residents appreciated. Had a rough start to her life, lost her father very young and dealt with adversity; but determined woman that she was, she grew up to be a mother, nurse, gardener, grandmother, Navy supporter (Beat Army!), avid Nebraska football fan (Go Big Red!), sailing buff, great-grandmother and world traveler. Fair winds and following seas on your final journey, smooth navigating into eternity; see you on the other side!

The family would like to express their admiration and gratitude to Judy’s neighbors Lindsey & Roy St. John; and Jon Schmiedeskamp, for their assistance & selfless support in her times of need; and to the staff of Bopp Chapel for their compassion & aid.

Memorial Gathering: Saturday, February 8, 2018, 10:00 a.m.to 12:00 p.m.; Sharing of Memories at 11:30 a.m. at Bopp Chapel, 10610 Manchester Rd., Kirkwood, MO 63122
