Judy Kirchner-Sivley, age 71, of Saint Charles, Missouri passed away on Tuesday, June 29, 2021 in Saint Louis, Missouri. She was born in Rolla, Missouri on December 23, 1949 to Willy and Geraldine Tyler (nee Stinson).
Judy spent most of her life in St Louis Missouri, but also spent seven years in Houston, Texas. Judy loved her parents Tommy and Wilma Whisnant, and more than anything her grandchildren, Riley, River and Haden. When her first grandchild was born (Riley) Judy stated her life was reborn! Judy biggest passion was being a grandmother, and she was without a doubt the World’s greatest grandma. Judy loved Michael Jackson and Shirley Temple and must have watched the movie Bucket List at least 100 times in her final days. Judy spent much of her adult life traveling with her husband Bob, mostly visiting theme parks. Judy posted recently on facebook the happiest time of her life was working with her son Larry creating The Darkness Haunted House, painting, building and meeting new people. Judy loved to be around people, family, and friends. Judy was a very active person building, painting and keeping busy until she discovered terminal cancer. Judy fought cancer for over a year all the way until the end. Judy’s favorite poem was Don’t Cry for Me and the favorite line was Don't cry for me. This is not the end. I'll be waiting here for you when we meet again.
Judy will now be our guardian angel until we meet again. Judy believed in God and was looking forward to seeing all of her sisters, brothers, both of her husbands (Bob and Larry), her parents, her mother in Law Bert, and all of our long lost friends in Heaven. Judy my mother wanted people to celebrate her life, remember her kindly, and visit her again in heaven. Judy was the kind of person who would want you to think of her often and smile, and if you visit her gravesite, please bring a PEPSI. I miss my mother as do all of her family and friends, she will be dearly missed. Judy, Mom, Grandma we love you and know you will be waiting for us at heavens gate with a open arms. Until we meet again we love you, and miss you dearly.
