Judith Kay Ashcraft

Born: 09/18/1948 Passed:

Judy Ashcraft was born in Canton, Ohio on September 18th, 1948. She went home to be with our Lord on April 11th, 2020 at the age of 71. Judy was the daughter of the late Anna and Hubert Marks. She was a 1966 graduate of McKinley High School, then she went on to work at the Hoover Co. with 10 years of service. She later graduated from Stark State College, where she became a certified medical assistant and worked for Dr. Mark Stachel for 17 years. She was a member of the First Assembly of God and lived most of her life in Louisville, Ohio.

Judy was hard working, loved gardening, made beautiful flower arrangements, was an amazing cook (famously known for her chili and vegetable soup), loved listening to music (especially her favorites from worship service), dancing and most of all spending time with her entire family gathered together. Judy loved when everyone would get together. It was one of the few times that all worries, and pains would fade away, leaving a peaceful smile on her face. Judy was a very generous and loving person. She always tried to make you feel welcome. She will be greatly missed.

She leaves her husband of 53 years, James Ashcraft, whom she married on June 25th, 1966. Judy is lovingly remembered by their daughter Rhonda Ashcraft; grandchildren Jessica (Aaron) Peck, Emily Ashcraft, Kyle Ashcraft, James Ashcraft and Madeline Ashcraft, daughter-in-law Christina Ashcraft and sister Annabel Conley, great grandchildren Emmett Peck and Rosaleigh Peck and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her wonderful son James T. Ashcraft Jr.; great granddaughter, Evangeline Peck; brothers-in-law, Ray Conley, Charles Ashcraft, George (Bud) Ashcraft, Lester Smith and sister-in-law, Pat Fulmer.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Louisville First Assembly of God. Condolences and special memories can be shared with the family online at www.paqueletfalk.com
