Judith Helen Banks

November 8, 1943 ~ March 3, 2020

On Monday, March 3, 2020, Judith Helen Banks, loving mother of two, grandmother of four, aunt and friend to many passed away at the age of 77. Judy was born November 8, 1943 in Ogden, Utah to Helen and Arthur Cartwright. She earned her BA in Behavioral Science at National University and used her drive and compassion for serving others to build a social services company in her hometown. Her depth of encouragement and mentoring improved countless lives.

Through her career, community, and within her family Judy was always the welcoming heart and listening ear everyone turned to. Judy was happiest spending time with her family, golfing with her children and grand children, gardening, learning new things, and volunteering at her church. Judy also enjoyed reading books and listening to her favorite artist, Elton John.

She brought people together and was quick to host a party, big or small to help others feel welcome and cared for. Her personality and laugh were infectious, and everyone who met her had a friend for life. Judy will be missed immensely. The way she showed love for others will live on in the lives she touched.

Judy was preceded in death by her husband Barry and brother, Greg. She leaves sons, Rick and Mitch and grand children, Kristy, Mitchell, Brenden and McKenzie, as well as many beloved nieces and nephews and friends who were as important to her as family.

I hope you don't mind

I hope you don't mind

That I put down in words

How wonderful life is while you're in the world

-Elton John

A memorial service will be held at The Episcopal Church of The Good Shepherd Monday, March 9, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers please send donations to St Jude Hospital.

Judy, will always be in my memories as she was always there for me while I was going through my Cancer.   She always had a twinkle in her eye, and above all, a sense of humor that sent you flying with laughter.

To have been in contact with her at least twice a week, her passing took all of us by shock.   She really gave her life to people.

Sometimes it feels like a dark cloud covered up the sun for a bit when someone like Judy dies. I wish we had known her better and longer, but appreciate that at least we knew her. Judee and Chuck Stanley

Judy was one of the bright lights: smart, quick-witted, and always fun to be with. She was passionate about bettering the lives of the children she worked to help. I’m sure going to miss her and the phone calls that always began, “Sandy, Sandy, how’s it going?”

I am proud to say I have known Judy since our childhood. She was a bright spot in my life that brought something beautiful to each and every time I saw her. So say she will be missed is simply not enough. I am angry that she was taken from us but grateful for the time she was with us. Judy you brought a light to every life you touched, especially mine. Rest in peace and be with God.
