OBITUARY - ALPHA "EUPHAN" (STEPHENS) JUDY

Funeral services for Euphan JUDY, 90, Bedford, were held Monday, Aug. 17, 1987, at Shum-Novinger Funeral Home in Bedford, with Rev. Carl CUMMINGS officiating. Burial was in Rose Hill Cemetery, Blockton.

Alpha Euphan JUDY was born October 2, 1896, near Maloy, Iowa, and departed this life August 13, 1987, at her home in Bedford, Iowa, at the age of 90 years, 10 months and 11 days.

Her parents were Sanford Connor STEPHENS and Ida Estella BLAKER STEPHENS. Her brothers and sisters were Mary, David, Florence, Elma, Paul and Mabel; Mabel died in infancy. Always these brothers and sisters, their spouses and their children were special to Euphan.

After her graduation from Blockton High School, she taught country school for six years.

In 1919 she and John Robert JUDY were united in marriage. Since they had no children for 13 years, they enjoyed nieces, nephews, and neighborhood youngsters and loved and were loved by them all. In 1932 their daughter, Joanne, was born to bless their home and to share their love.

Euphan's Lord and her faith were the center of her life. Her friendships, her family and her attitudes were all part of her great witness. She and Bob worshipped in the Methodist Church in Blockton, Iowa, where they were always active. Euphan served as president of the women's organization for several years and the pin she wears is an award for 50-year membership.

After her husband's death in 1969, she moved her home and her church membership from Bedford where her gallant spirit, her caring nature, and her interest in others continued until the final moments of her life.

Left to cherish her memory are her daughter, Joanne and her husband, Loyd OSBURN; granddaughter, Judy BEEMER and her husband, Chris, and their children, Christa and Jud; granddaughter, Janie LEMKE and her husband, Henry, and their children, Leslie and Andrea; her sisters, Elma WILKINSON and her husband, Eddie; her sister-in-law, Lois STEPHENS SWARTZ; and many nieces, nephews, friends and neighbors.
