Judith was born to Reba and Milton Boyd on July 5, 1940, in Odessa Texas. She will be missed by everyone who was blessed enough to have enjoyed her presence. Judith grew up in Goldsmith. Her childhood was spent singing praises to the Lord with her family. Judith was first and foremost a woman of God for 81 years. In her adult years she lived and worked as an administrative assistant in Lubbock, Houston, and Abilene, spending her final years in Austin. Anyone who spent time with Judith quickly learned how much she loved playing games and making crafts for those she loved. She had a flair for style, with charm and humor that could disarm anyone. To describe her in a word, generous.


Judith is preceded in death by her husband of over 22 years, Joe E. Daniels; parents, Milton and Reba Boyd, and her beloved grandsons, Frank and Cole LaGrone.


She is survived by children Walter LaGrone and his wife Rhonda of Texas City, Laura and husband Don Massey, Paul LaGrone and wife Liz, and Adam LaGrone and wife Kayron of Austin, Texas. She is also survived by her sister Suzanne and husband Lloyd Alcorn; brothers Bill Boyd and wife Tandy, and Crosby Boyd and wife Janna; grandchildren, Elisabeth LaGrone, Scott LaGrone, Donald Massey, II, Mark Massey, Mattye Massey, Samuel LaGrone, Noelle LaGrone, Alexandra LaGrone, and Crosby LaGrone and her four great grandchildren, Candance, Mattye, Donald, and Archer Massey; along with numerous nephews, nieces, great nephews and nieces who will all miss her caring and warm spirit.
