Back to Judy 's LifeWeb


Judy Fuqua lost her battle with Cancer and departed this world on July 31, 2020. She was born to Bob and Gert Woods in Ann Arbor, Michigan on August 14, 1946. She is survived by her husband John of 36 years, daughter Megan and her husband Josh Kuehler, her brother Kevin Woods and wife Judy, her sister Jennifer and husband Richard Perryman, nieces Abigail, Caitlin and Amanda, nephews Jonathon and Chris, and several grand nieces and nephews.

Judy graduated Ann Arbor High School in 1964 and went on to attend Michigan State University, earning her Bachelor of Science degree in 1968. In October 1968 she graduated from American Airline Stewardess College and began her career as a Stewardess. Judy was able to travel and see the world and loved it. In later life she worked as a travel agent and continued to travel and see new places whenever she could. Her love of travel was one the great joys of her life.

Judy enjoyed golf, tennis, and skiing. She was involved in neighborhood projects and served as a school board member. Judy was an avid reader, sometimes reading a book in a day. She was an artist and painted for most of her life. She loved music, live theater, and opera. She liked serving on committees at Country Clubs and became addicted to Mahjong. She was kind, generous, and outgoing and loved to give her time and talents. She was loved by many and will be missed.

The family is planning a life celebration in the Bradenton, FL and Ann Arbor, MI areas but due to the current pandemic crisis, the details are not known at this time. As details become available, the family will post updates here and through Megan Fuqua.

The family wishes to extend a special thanks and appreciation to all the neighbors and friends for their thoughts, prayers, cards, visits, flowers, and food during her long illness. We will be monitoring this page, sharing additional pictures, and welcome any stories or memories of Judy.

In lieu of flowers the family is requesting that memorial donations be made to the America Cancer Society in her name. If you would like to send an ecard, please direct them to John’s email address:
