Way; son, Charles “Chuck” Way; daughters, Jennifer Shaffer and husband, Keith, Amy Pearson and husband, Greg; sister, Peggy Peacock; grandchildren, Drew Matura, Camille Shaffer, Adam and Emily Pearson as well as numerous other family members and friends.
Judy graduated from Jesse H Jones High School in 1962 and then attended the University of Houston. She met and married the love of her life Charlie Way on June 4, 1965, and they had three children together. Once they started building a family, she decided to stay home and raise the children. She considered her grandchildren her greatest gifts. She spent as much time as she could with them, caring for them, reading to them, teaching them to bake, cooking for them, and attending any and all functions and events they were involved in. She was a devout Christian and enjoyed volunteering at church and in her community. Judy always enjoyed hosting holiday events and entertaining the masses. She also loved to invite family and friends to her house for fun in the sun, water sports and a delicious meal on any given weekend. Her favorite career was being a travel agent, as she loved to travel as well as plan vacations for others to enjoy. She was an avid Aggie fan and loved attending football games at Kyle Field, and when she couldn’t be there in person, she would watch them on T. V. She enjoyed shopping for Aggie gear at the bookstore, as it was a tradition for her to give the guys brand new Aggie shirts each football season.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Judy’s name to the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation at cholangiocarcinoma.org
