OBITUARY OF JUDITH S PARTRIDGE

Judith Arden Shumate Partridge, 86 years old, of Winter Haven, Florida, passed away on February 1, 2024.

Judy was born at home in Stithton, Kentucky in 1937 and raised in Elizabethtown, Kentucky until she married her husband of 65 years, Ed.

Her steadfast focus on those she loved was expressed by her generosity, loyalty, and never- ending devotion. Judy’s way of expressing herself was a delight, in itself. She always held a positive perspective and “just do it” attitude.

She welcomed all to her home- a place of music, delicious food, beauty and celebration. She loved gatherings!

All plants, her beloved Babe and lifelong animal companions also abundantly thrived with her care.

Judy especially enjoyed enduring friendships and creative channels as a 50+ year Bouquet Garden Club member and past president. In addition, her lifelong devotion to singing, her church and volunteerism offered a purpose driven life.

Music lived in her. In high school she sang, played the piano and shared a daily devotion on the radio before school. As a newlywed stationed in Germany, she was the “Bob Hope” performer for soldiers and continued to perform most of her life. In addition, she was equally gifted behind the scenes, graciously encouraging, influencing, organizing and supporting other people’s dreams.

Judy is survived by her daughters, Kathryn Lockhart (husband Bill), Karen Weatherford (husband Doug), Grandsons Joshua Lockhart (wife Jessica), Jared Lockhart (wife Chalsey), Brent Weatherford, Steven Weatherford (wife Madelyn). Great grandchildren, Cole, Luke, Walker and Scarlett Lockhart.

Judy is preceded in death by her parents Dona and Bill Shumate and her husband Ed Partridge.
