Judith

In the comfort of her home, surrounded by her loving family, Judy Stockman, age 78, of Plum, passed away peacefully on Monday, September 7, 2020. Born March 6, 1942 in Connellsville, PA, she was the eldest child of Fred and Barbara (Brooks) Kemmerer. Judy and her family eventually settled in Penn Hills, PA where she attended Seneca High School, meeting the love of her life, Bob Stockman. They were married June 6, 1960 and built a wonderful life together, raising five children. Judy worked as a nursing assistant at the former Pittsburgh Hospital before fulfilling her lifelong dream of becoming an RN. She attended CCAC Boyce, was Secretary of her class and graduated with honors. She began her career as an RN on the postpartum unit at the newly established Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville. She was an outstanding nurse, whose dedication and commitment to her patients showed in the love and care she displayed each and every day. She treated all patients equally with the utmost dignity and respect. She was an active member of Unity Community Church, serving as a volunteer at the church's food bank and as a member of the Women's Wednesday night bible study group. She was an avid sports fan and could hold her own while discussing baseball, football and hockey. She loved to read and especially enjoyed reading The Post Gazette front to back. She was a member of the Tri-Drive women's bowling league at Nesbit Lanes in Plum and enjoyed all genres of music. Her and Bob had a close circle of friends with whom they enjoyed traveling and going out to dinner with. They also belonged to a couples card club. Judy and Bob enjoyed yearly trips to Florida, cruising and Disneyworld, but their happiest times were those spent with their children and grandchildren. Whether at the ballfields watching their granddaughters play softball or attending dance recitals and musicals, to basketball games, dek hockey, bowling, soccer games and football, they were always there to cheer them on. They also served as the best pet sitters for their grandpups, Charlie and Sadie. They most recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on June 6, 2020. Judy lived a full and beautiful life and will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. She was preceded in death by her parents Barb and Fred Kemmerer, sister Karen Karr and brother Don Kemmerer. She will be forever missed by her loving husband Bob and their children, Cheryl (Chuck) Pazman, Terri (Chip) Nicholas, Bob, Jeff (Debbie) and Mark Stockman along with Mark’s former wife, Cathy Schultz. She was the adored and beloved Grandma/Gaga to Christina (Jimmy) Mease, Michelle (Candice) Bowman, Alyssa (Cheech) Andreoli, Victoria (Erik) Stefancic, Alexa Nicholas, Jeffrey, Joseph and Jonathan Stockman, Cody Stockman and Jacqueline Stockman. Great Grandma to Gianna and Gino Mease and Savanna and Anthony Stefancic. She is also survived by her loving sister Barbara (James) Drummond, brother Mark (Barb) Kemmerer and sister-in-law Sandra (Jay) Ware, along with many nieces, nephews and cousins.
