Judith Ann Mudge

Mudge, Judith Ann (Cox)   It is with heavy hearts we announce Judith Ann (Cox) Mudge passed away Thursday, April 25, 2024.  Born in Richmond, Kentucky, daughter to the late Roger E Cox and Helen Winkler.  She was loving, caring, and fun, a lover of all animals, a mother, a mamaw, and a sister.  

She was preceded in death by her parents, Roger E Cox, Helen Grinnell and stepfather Bill Grinnell; husband Arthur “Art” Mudge; and son, John Dennis Creech. 

Survivors include five children, Debbie Gossett, Darrin Creech and wife Kerri, Angie Wardlow and husband Rocky, Derek Creech, Niki South and husband Jim; 9 grandchildren, Britney Hamilton, Jessica Roeschlein, Kaleigh Hamilton, Zachary Gossett, Matthew Alexander, Halle Creech, Garrett Creech, Jake Wardlow and Carson Wardlow; 2 great grandchildren, Silas Roeschlein and Hutton Wardlow; brother Roger L. Cox and wife Ann, nephew Landon Cox and wife Jennifer and step-sister Brenda Grinnell Bellar and husband Duane. 

In her earlier years, Judy was a stay-at-home mother tasked with corralling her five, unruly children. Herding cats would have been easier, but Judy made short work of it, taking pride in running her household and caring for her family.  

By all accounts, Judy was a fabulous cook and baker who loved cooking for family and friends. No one ever left Judy’s house hungry. If you visited, you left with a stuffed to-go container (or two).  Her family has many of her recipes that they will continue to make and enjoy for generations to come. She was also a formidable bowler, and whether you were six or sixty, Judy’s goal was to win.  She loved to spend time with her daughters, attending local festivals, enjoying bed and breakfasts, and scouring antique shops.  

Judy’s later life was devoted to her grandchildren, who she loved with the whole of her heart.  A weekend at Mamaw’s meant a Blockbuster marathon, a trip to feed the ducks, and always a hotdog for the dogs.  Judy found joy in investing in her grandchildren’s lives and wanted nothing but happiness for them all. One of her greatest joys was to surround herself with her grandchildren and watch as they opened their gifts at Christmas.  If she could, she would have given them the world. She was the definition of a wonderful Mamaw.   

At Judy’s request, a private family ceremony will be held.  In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the charity of your choice.
