Judith Marlene GARDINER (Majeau)


Judith Marlene (Majeau) of Sylvan Lake, was born August 17, 1943 in Edmonton, to parents Napolean and Maren (Vest) Majeau, and died October 24, 2015 at the age of 72 in Red Deer, supported by her family. She was predeceased by her brother Garry Majeau and sister in law, Carol Majeau. She is survived by her husband of 47 years, Kenneth Gardiner, daughters Faye (Jim) Peterson, Gail (Murray) Martin and son Kevin (Sherri) Gardiner, her brothers Paul (Sandra), David (Laverne), Roland (Charlie) and Norman (Sue) Majeau and her sister Joanne (Larry) Kluthe, her brothers in laws Bob (Judy), Brian (Pat), and Hal (Sandy) Gardiner and numerous nieces and nephews who all adored her. Her grandchildren: Darci and Chelsea Peterson, Harrison and Lois Gardiner, Samuel Martin, and Damian, Dakota and Dylan Sullivan, were her pride and joy! Nothing she enjoyed more than having the kids around. She loved going to watch their events, from Christmas concerts, soccer, bowling, band, karate, curling, hockey and whatever else the kids were into at that time. Judy loved curling and golfing and was a great swimmer. She was a skilled seamstress, and quilter, talented with various other crafts. While her kids were young, Judy was a stay at home Mom, then she worked for a while at the school and at Razzle Dazzle daycare, where her true gift of caregiver shone brightly. Judy enjoyed her time in the baby room, but especially her work with her special girl, Jody. Ken and Judy made many interesting trips down south, particularly enjoying Lake Havasu and their trip to the Masters. They went on their trip of a life time to Australia and New Zealand in 2012 and recently went across Canada this summer until her yet undiagnosed illness, hampered the trip too much. Judy was a dedicated wife and mother, always taking care of her family. She was a beautiful person from the inside out, with inner strength and grace, creating many friendships despite her shy and private nature. Funeral will be Nov 2 at Sylvan Lake Alliance Community Church at 2pm, followed by a celebration of her life at the Legion. In lieu of flowers or gifts, make donations to the Canadian Liver Foundation or the Lending Cupboard in Red Deer.
