Judith Marie Abbott

November 17, 1948 — November 6, 2023

Judith Marie Abbott

Judith Marie Abbott was peacefully called home to the Lord and to walk with the angels on November 6, 2023. She was 74 years old.  She was born on November 17, 1948, in Ellis, Kansas to Dorothy Leiker and Isidore Augustine. Judy was a graduate of Ellis High School.

She cared deeply for her family, friends, and as a professional caregiver for over 30 years, those in her care as well.  She did this not out of obligation, but because of who she was.  Judith's compassion was not limited to just those with two legs. Judith's love for animals was without question and she never met a dog or cat that did not need “just one more treat”.  She also had a crisp, witty, and fun sense of humor which she shared with all.  When Judy let out her one-of-a-kind laugh, it was impossible not to join in. 

Judith is survived by her son Dale Herrman, daughters Pamela Gonzalez, Ava Wood, and Jennifer Abbott, stepson Steven Abbott, stepdaughter Leigh Ann Schultz, brothers Charles and Patrick Augustine, son-in-law Robert Wood, daughter-in-law Sharon Herrman, thirteen grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, and numerous other extended family members and friends. 

Judith was preceded in death by her husband of 20 years Lou Abbott, parents Isidore and Dorothy Augustine, brother Francis Augustine, daughter Suzzane Riley, and grandson Zeke Riley.  

The family would like to thank the caregivers of the Estates at Shavano Park in San Antonio, Texas who compassionately assisted and looked after Judy in her final months.  

Judith's family asks that she be remembered for the joy she brought to others in life not the sadness of her passing.  Judy’s spirit lives on in the countless lives she touched. May she rest in eternal peace with the Lord and be reunited with her loved ones.
